Oilsands sales pitch hits pay dirt

Lambton College will finally start offering a Bachelor of Commerce program locally.

An agreement has been struck with Nipissing University to offer the program in Sarnia starting September 2013.

The program will be offered on both a full and part-time basis for business administration graduates.

Lambton College students will be granted advanced standing in the program if they have a three-year business administration diploma with at least a 72% grade point average.

“Being able to offer this program in Sarnia is very important,” said Donna Church, dean of business and information technology, and creative design, in a release. “It allows us to give our students and graduates a flexible, cost effective option to enhance their career pathways, while giving businesses in Sarnia the opportunity to hire qualified local individuals.”

Lambton College has been trying for years to line up a university partner to offer the program. A university degree is now required for business certifications, like accountants and human resources professionals.

Applicants are invited to apply at ouac.ca for the program.
