My friend suggests to me. It has a good reputation in this area. My preference was the Manitoba region. I done IELTS, this minimum required score was 6 band each. In my course, there are 13 students in the same class. It's agriculture program. I am learning horticulture. The growing culture of Canada. It's an interesting program.

I heard about this college when I was back in the home country. It's one of the best colleges in Manitoba for business programs. I had a great experience and when I first contacted them through the email they replied to me well and it showed how college communications work.
The courses at Assiniboine Community College are designed in such a way that it is more useful in practice and career. It is designed caring for the structure of the program and the importance of credits.
They pride themselves on diversity and acceptance of all, and they have so many extra resources and activities\clubs for their students to get involved in to create an even closer bond between classmates.
This course curriculum is great, although the one thing I would change is the amount of Accounting that is required. I have talked to real accountants that have never done some of the things that we learn, and I just think this amount of Accounting knowledge should be required for the Accounting specialization, not for the Business Admin year 1. Other than this I love the curriculum and the classes we take.
