Program graduates are currently pursuing careers in a wide range of businesses and industries, as well as in teaching, government, and not-for-profit foundations. As a student in Arts and Business you have the option to enrol in a degree credit Vocational Placement (Internship) Course. AP courses include American History, World History, Calculus, Computer Science, English, Environmental Science, Psychology, Spanish Language Arts and Spanish Literature. But my focus is arts-based management: how the arts can be integrated and absorbed within organisational life in order to make new forms of organisation. High School for Arts and Business is a medium-size school that offers some large school perks.
If Business Studies is not the selected major then a minor in Business Studies must be completed. The scholarship includes the UK/EU rate of tuition fee and £14,296 living expenses per year (2016-17 Research Council UK rate). It is, however, an excellent and efficient way for a student to use Tri-C as a stepping stone on the path to completing a four year business degree. This joint degree, completed full-time over 4 years, will cover a balance of study areas across business and the humanities.
It should be noted that students interested in transferring to a four year school to complete their bachelor’s degree should contact the transfer school as early as possible in their academic program to insure they are taking the most appropriate courses for that institution.
In recent years the school has added honors sections for select math and science classes. This 4-month program starts in May at Queen’s School of Business in Kingston, Ontario. Typical 9th graders start school performing below grade level, although Arts & Business is starting to attract high achievers, according to principal Ana Zambrano-Burakov. This is believed to be the largest single private donation to an arts and cultural organization in the City’s history. For example, students interested in going to med school can ensure that they’ve completed the requisite coursework through the pre-health area of specialization.
An Arts and Business degree will allow you to explore your interests in both disciplinary areas and be equipped for a diverse range of career options. You will also gain additional Business insight and develop your capacities through elective courses in marketing, law and management.
