Why Polytechnic?

Humber offers a polytechnic style of learning. What’s a polytechnic?

Being a polytechnic means that our programs are career-focused and responsive to changes in competitive global job markets. Humber professors bring a wealth of relevant industry experience to the classroom. Class sizes are small, and simulation labs and work placements bridge the gap between classroom and industry. We put theory into practice from day one, which is important because work-integrated learning means you will have experience working in your industry before you graduate! When you leave Humber you will be a professional, poised and ready to make your mark.

Participants of this program are immersed in a comprehensive study of business, art, design and technology intended to stimulate entrepreneurial and 21st-century leadership skills for real-world challenges.

Humber’s Ontario Graduate Certificates accelerate career paths with specialized training that builds on previous diploma or degree experience. By expanding student networks and providing industry-relevant experience, Humber is providing practical skills and knowledge for graduates to take on a wide variety of leadership roles as creatives, innovators and entrepreneurs.

With both institutions located in Canada’s largest city, Toronto, Ontario, this two-year creative-business MA pathway provides an easy transition for students in Toronto looking to continue their studies. It is also a particularly advantageous pathway for international students who can complete both an Ontario Graduate Certificate and degree within two years as part of a two-year study permit.
