Ontario Colleges and McDonald’s Canada ink groundbreaking business training agreement

Posted on Friday August 19, 2016

For the first time in Ontario, McDonald’s Canada employees will be able to earn a full year’s worth of college credits towards a Business diploma or advanced diploma program, thanks to a collaboration between the company and Ontario’s 24 community colleges.

Locally, this announcement will make obtaining a Cambrian College diploma in Business faster and more affordable for McDonald’s managers who have completed the required development training provided by the company. It will be possible for them to complete a two-year college diploma program in just one year.

Joan Campbell, Dean of Cambrian College’s School of Business and Information Technology, explained that “this announcement is very timely because it’s not too late to apply and register for our Business program that starts in September. We’re looking forward to welcoming McDonald’s managers into our classes whether they prefer to study with us on campus, online, or both. This partnership is also aligned with the College’s strategic goal of increasing access to Cambrian College and providing flexible learning options.”

Cambrian’s Business programs have flexible online and in-class study options that are perfect for those who want to study full-time or part-time while continuing with their careers.

Many students choose to study Business at Cambrian because of the excellent student supports, co-op and placement opportunities and the opportunity to fast-track into a variety of university degree programs.
