Applied Learning Experiences

Receive real-world experience and valuable understanding of entrepreneurial success in the Entrepreneurship course by taking on the steps to plan, start and operate a business for 15 weeks as a class. Our latest Business graduates started  the business Sweet Sooprize where they manufactured  surprise bags  with candy, toys and games to sell on campus. A portion of the proceeds are being donated to the student food bank.

Business students were also given a new opportunity to expand the knowledge and skills  gained from coursework. Students participated in the Canada Revenue Agency’s Community Volunteer Income Tax Program (CVITP) and used the latest tax software to prepare and E-File tax returns for students.  These students gained practical experience in tax preparation and developed important skills to benefit their future careers while giving back to our Sault College community.
