I have nothing but praise for the Applied Business Technology program! My instructors were amazing as they were always available for both academic help and personal support. The transition into the professional field was seamless due to the knowledge gained and the skills developed during the course. Guest speakers helped me gain a beneficial insight into the career before me and also became valued professional contacts. I highly recommend the ABT program to anyone who is wanting to obtain an administrative professional role in their careers.
The Applied Business Technology Program has been hugely beneficial to me. The instructors are amazing and made the program enjoyable even through the stressful times. I would and will recommend ABT to all who ask about the program. Without ABT I would not have landed the school district position that I currently hold.
Taking the Applied Business Technology (ABT) program was the best decision I ever made. When I first heard about the program I was working in retail, but what I really wanted was a job in an office environment. I knew that in order to get my dream job, I would have to upgrade my skills and go back to school.
My experience taking the ABT program was incredibly positive. The instructors were so supportive, knowledgeable, and they really cared for all of their students. Another great thing about ABT was the opportunity to make friends with the amazing people in my class. Through lots of laughter (and sometimes tears), we all made it through together as a team. Although the learning curve was steep at first, and although the volume of homework was overwhelming at times, I was so proud of myself when I finished because I proved to myself that I was capable of so much more than I thought.
Since completing the program, I have gotten a job at UFV and I couldn't be happier. I would absolutely recommend this program to others who may want to expand their skillset and/or who may want a career as an administrative professional. My advice to others would be to be to pursue your goals, even if that means being brave and stepping out of your comfort zone. You never know what you're capable of until you try!
Being a student in the ABT program, I found the faculty to be supportive, responsive, and fun. The instructors care about your success, offering many real-world examples to reinforce what you are learning. The variety of concepts learned keeps you interested and the intensity of the program rewards you with tremendous knowledge and confidence. Having completed the program, I feel that I have received a unique experience, made some friends, and have solid expertise to offer employers.
Taking the ABT program was an amazing experience! Now that I have graduated, I can choose any career path I want, as the ABT program was full of such transferable skills, they will be used anywhere I go. I am stunned at how much my life has changed in six months.
The ABT program exceeded all of my expectations. The instructors were nothing but amazing. They encouraged me and wanted to see me succeed in all of the courses. They gave me the tools that I needed and the confidence to go after the job I always wanted, which I did get. If it wasn't for these instructors I would not be where I am today. Whenever I speak of this program, I always speak very highly of it and would recommend it to any one, no matter what age.
MNP currently has three ABT grads on staff in our Abbotsford office. We recently promoted one ABT grad and hired another ABT grad into her previous position. The third grad (who is very well established in our US International Tax group) has been with us for four years.
All three have made a very positive impression and are excellent representatives of graduates from the ABT program. Their technical skills are impressive, and they surpass expectations with the quality of work they produce. They continually demonstrate the value of the ABT program.
