    Students can choose to participate in either the Planned Program [PDF] (an accelerated mode of study) or the more traditional part-time mode of study.

    Students in the planned program can expect to complete their technical courses after a one-year (three semester) period of intense study. The graduating project, BUSA 7250 and liberal studies courses can be completed during employment following completion of the technical courses.

    Those students choosing to maintain full-time employment may register in evening classes or the occasional afternoon class as circumstances permit. Students may proceed at a pace of their choice, but must complete the program within seven years.
