Choice of face-to-face or online courses

Courses in this program are offered either online or face-to-face.

Online courses

Online courses use the University of Alberta's state-of-the-art training tools, offering virtual classes in real time (synchronous) or in delayed mode (asynchronous). The eClass online learning platform enables students to learn and collaborate in a practical and effective way.

Full-time or part-time studies


Courses in the Business Administration Technician program are organized so as to complete training over a two-year period. This equates to five courses in each of the fall and winter semesters. The program structure is illustrated on the course grid.


Courses in the Business Administration Technician program can also be taken on a part-time basis (i.e., reducing the number of courses per session), while extending the duration of the program. A pre-determined pathway enables students to progress progressively complete the program in two years for the Certificate and three years for the Diploma. A three-course load per semester is still considered full-time, according to the University calendar.
