Over the past 50 years, Centennial College has transformed itself from a local community college to a worldly institution, with a presence in countries like China, India, South Korea and Brazil.
Our focus has always been on preparing graduates to enter the work force, while teaching our students to be leaders. We’ve worked to build lasting partnerships with local communities, while preparing our graduates to succeed globally.
Locally, we continue to offer industry-recognized full- and part-time programs at four Toronto campuses. Whether in our classrooms, our labs or the community, Centennial student experience the real world before they even graduate. They’re job-ready, and that’s a fact employers have told us, as more than 94 per cent of those hiring Centennial grads are satisfied or very satisfied with their hires.
As a leader in internationalization, we’ve done extensive work teaching international students. At the same time, we are enabling more Canadian learners to have an international adventure, be it completing a semester in Spain, an internship in South Africa or a Global Citizenship learning experience in the Amazon Basin.
We believe a Centennial education is an education without borders, because the world has changed, and so have we. We’ve re-created our College, giving ourselves a unique position in the marketplace and the world. We are now prepared for the next set of challenges: To be more innovative and entrepreneurial, to further exploit the benefits of technology, to creatively engage our employees, to build more bridges with communities and employers and to see our graduates do meaningful work and have meaningful lives.
