For students looking for a well-rounded training in software engineering and product development.

For students with a keen interest in art and an eye for aesthetic detail, a finishing school for user experience professionals.

A successful business needs more than just high tech and great visual design. A heady mix of excellent support, effective marketing, and efficient sales is as important. If you have a yen for selling, a way with people, and power over the written (and spoken) word, we might be your meaningful alternative to a conventional business school degree.

The School for Advanced study serves as an Honours Program, allowing students who have the hunger and passion to develop breadth of knowledge in two fields, not just depth in one. This is akin to students doing a major and a minor in a standard baccalaureate program. The two fields can be any two fields from three (tech, business, and design).
