    I chose to study at the University of Sainte-Anne because of it's comprehensive and up to date course curriculum. The university makes its students ready for the job market and even guarantees employment to any student applying for the program I have chosen, BBA. The fact that the program is taught in French and thus increases your fluency in the language is an added bonus. The application was done through the online portal of the website which charged around $300 for the application fee.

    Course Curriculum :

    It is a well-structured course designed to equip students with the means of dealing with real-world scenarios and challenges. Basically we have to obtain 126 credits over a course of 4 years to graduate. This includes credits in subjects like English, French, administration, human sciences, science, and other electives.
