Yes! All baccalaureate degrees offered by Ontario’s Colleges of Applied Arts and Technology (CAAT) are subject to the same requirements and quality assurances as those offered by Ontario’s Institutes of Technology & Advanced Learning (ITAL).
Sheridan’s Bachelor of Business Administration degrees were initially quality-assured by the Postsecondary Education Quality Assessment Board (PEQAB) in 2014. They were re-assessed this year (2021) by a panel of independent subject matter experts and were renewed for another seven years.

Yes, courses can be scheduled anytime between 8 a.m and 10 p.m., and we offer a selection of evening courses each semester!
However, evening courses are not guaranteed, and you’ll almost certainly have to accommodate daytime courses at some point in your studies. Our student advisers will work with you to develop a plan that allows for flexibility in your daytime commitments, such as arranging for before- or after-school care for children, or beginning work an hour late one day per week.
As a Sheridan student, you’ll have access to career support through Sheridan Works, an online platform that allows students, alumni and employers to engage in a variety of career-related and job-related activities. You’ll be able to apply to job positions through our Career Services job board, book appointments with Employment Consultants and Career Counsellors, view current Co-Curricular Record opportunities, and register for workshops, seminars, information sessions and more!
If you’re enrolled in a program that includes a co-op or internship, we’ll also help you search and apply for co-op or internship positions, book interviews and meet with co-op advisors.

You’ll get significant credit for courses you completed in your diploma, allowing you to complete your degree sooner.

Once you’ve applied and paid your fees, you’ll be able to access myPathways, an online service that enables Sheridan students to see what previous learning credits can be applied towards your program.

If you’re a full-time student, it will likely take you two years to complete a diploma program, three years to complete an advanced diploma program and four years to complete a degree program.
If you’re studying part-time, the length of time it will take you to complete your program will depend on how many courses you choose to complete each semester.
Taking a full course load of five courses or more can typically be balanced with part-time work responsibilities.
However, we don’t recommend studying full-time while also working full-time, as it is very difficult to balance the demands of both.
All of Sheridan’s business courses are offered at our state-of-the-art Hazel McCallion Campus (HMC), located in the heart of Mississauga at 4180 Duke of York Boulevard (across from Square One Shopping Centre).
