The BCIT Business Management certificate program offers you the most job-relevant business skills with flexible training to accommodate your busy schedule. Both horizontal and vertical integration is possible into further studies in business communication, business accounting, general management, marketing management, human resources management, credit management, information technology and entrepreneurship.
You will look at traditional costing methods and techniques, such as contribution volume profit analysis (CVP), budgeting, responsibility accounting, transfer pricing, and decision-making, alongside more innovative management tools, including activity based costing (ABC), activity based management (ABM), and the balanced scorecard.
You will consider which courses of action are most appropriate for particular management situations, and examine techniques used by managers to gain insights into situations and structure potential solutions to perceived problems, including concepts of non-linearity, self-organisation, creativity and chaos.
