About Thompson Rivers University
At Thompson Rivers University, student success is our priority. We empower our students to reach their goals with flexible learning options, individualized student services, hands-on learning opportunities, and a diverse, inclusive environment.
Since 1970, TRU has taken pride in providing an excellent education to every student who comes to us — from a wide variety of backgrounds and perspectives, at various stages of the learning journey. We serve more than 25,000 students — on our campuses in Kamloops and Williams Lake, and via distance or online courses and programs through Open Learning. From traditional academics to trades, from certificates to graduate degrees, TRU offers over 140 on-campus programs and 50-plus Open Learning programs. Our students apply what they learn in co-op work terms, study abroad, undergraduate research, field schools and practicums, service learning and other opportunities — with guidance and mentorship by our accessible faculty. Research, creation and innovation thrive in our open, flexible learning environment. And so do our students.
Develop your skills in areas such as accounting, oral and written communications, problem-solving, marketing, human relations, economics, law, information systems and business ethics and prepare for an entry-level position in general administration and sales. Your diploma credits count towards completion of the Bachelor of Business Administration.
Grads generally work as management trainees in service-orientated businesses and retail outlets, sales trainees in a variety of industries, or in various human resource and general management positions. Some students start their own ventures or work in family businesses.
