Whether you want to upgrade your qualifications or switch career paths, McMaster University Centre for Continuing Education has proven to be a valuable and convenient option for students looking to sharpen their professional skills through adult education.
As its continuing education courses in Hamilton have benefited so many, McMaster CCE is now proud to offer a variety of courses in Mississauga at the Mississauga Training Centre: Private Career College (MTC) for an even more flexible education option.
For people living and working in Mississauga and the surrounding area, taking a program at MTC is an ideal way to fit classes into your schedule. You can even accelerate the process by taking classes from both locations (Hamilton and Mississauga) or combine in-person and online learning.
Programs offered in Mississauga include Accounting, Business Administration, and Human Resources Management. Classes start in January, May and September.
For students looking to launch an Accounting career, there’s the option to pursue a Diploma in Accounting or a Certificate in Advanced Accounting with McMaster CCE.
During the program, you’ll learn about ethical standards and professional practices in the industry, how to research, calculate, and evaluate financial information, recognize the impact of economic, political, and professional regulations on Accounting practices, and develop key skills that you can apply to professional designations (like your CPA!), along with so much more.
As an Accounting student, you’ll take classes like Financial Management, Business Law, Business Strategy, and more — all of which are available both in-person and online on a part-time or fast-track schedule, depending on your availability.
Graduates from the program are prepared for careers in government, retail, finance, logistics, education, non-profit, healthcare, manufacturing, and transportation sectors in Canada — with career options ranging from Financial Analyst, to Auditor, to CFO!
A successful employee is able to communicate well and have a strong understanding of how the organization works as a whole — not just their specific department. Knowing how finance, marketing, and operations work together, and how human behaviour is essential to an organization’s effectiveness, you’ll become a strong and adaptable team member, which is what the McMaster Business Administration program aims to develop!
The program can be completed one of three ways: as a certificate made up of five core courses, a general diploma made up of five core courses and three electives, or a diploma with a concentration, made up of the five core courses and specialized classes in Finance, HR, Marketing, Management, Project Management, or Risk Management.
The program’s core courses include classes like Foundations of Business Finance and Introduction to Marketing, and concentration diploma students can explore even more options like Web Analytics and Risk Financing.
Like the Accounting program, courses are available both online and in-person, so you have the freedom to pick the learning format that works best for your needs. There’s even an option to complete the entire 5-course certificate in Mississauga in only one year.
This program is ideal for recent grads and professionals who are looking to sharpen their skills and move up in the world of business.
Human Resources Management
For young professionals looking to get a head start on a career in Human Resources, they should look no further than the Human Resources Management program at McMaster CCE. The program has been carefully designed to introduce concepts and practices that are essential to human resources management, and give students the opportunity to study and discuss current issues and key topics that are important to the human resource function of a business.

For students and young professionals looking to gain an edge on their competition in the business world, McMaster’s blend of theoretical knowledge and practical skills equips you with the tools you need to succeed in today’s dynamic and ever-changing workforce.
