This program includes amazing experiential learning opportunities and small class sizes that prepare students for an exciting career in advertising and marketing communications, where there are labour shortages in major markets. This means a wealth of job opportunities!

You will be exposed to and practice the complete realm of advertising communications: creative planning and media buying, direct response and digital advertising, content development including blogging and video production. You will prepare advertising campaigns for real clients that embrace all elements of communications. You will learn how to evaluate and recommend various marketing communications solutions to resolve business problems.

We offer a two-year program and a three-year option with the first two years being common to all Advertising students. Students in either stream can choose to graduate with the two-year diploma or continue with the third year to explore more deeply the full breadth and scope of integrated marketing communications; a field with strong job prospects across all industries.
