    Entrepreneurship & Leadership

    We mean business !

    The Entrepreneurship & Leadership profile is centred on economics, business law basics, leadership skills, innovation, and globalization for students interested in the business world. With a focus on critical thinking and effective communication, students will gain valuable experience in project management, financial management, and business model development.

    The profile’s team-building approach promotes critical analysis, out-of-the-box thinking, sustainable business practices, and innovation. It prepares students for CEGEP programs such as Commerce, Social Sciences, Liberal Arts and International Business Studies. It teaches students skill sets for careers in accounting, economics, politics, business, entrepreneurship, marketing, management, human resources, and the communications industry.

    "Now, more than ever, entrepreneurship can be learned! The more skills an entrepreneur has, the better his chances of succeeding. Villa Maria’s program offers students the opportunity to start acquiring the necessary tools early and that can only help them turn their vision into reality!"
