Concordia’s BBA program worked perfectly with my schedule. The flexibility that I had to focus on one class for eight weeks at a time allowed me to continue working full-time and still dedicate time to my education. I completed my BBA virtually, but not once did I feel like I was missing out on something because I wasn’t an on-campus student. The tools and learning resources available to us as young professionals were excellent, and the support of the staff and alumni was invaluable.
