"It seems the broader educational community is moving towards outcome-based interdisciplinary learning. Witnessing this shift in educational values, I was excited to discover that the BIS program at UNB that was ahead of this curve. If you’re after a program that helps you develop unique competencies and skill-sets for the new era we’re living in – lucky you – the BIS program has what you need.”
"As an adult learner having completed two certificate programs through CEL, I came to a crossroad where I chose the BIS program over other degree programs at UNB. I am happy I made that choice – the BIS program proved to be the best fit for me. I was able to customize the program to meet my needs by having access to courses not otherwise open to students. And the leadership component gave me the opportunity me to grow and develop as a person and leader, equipped with learning and experiences I can refer to in my everyday life, both inside and outside of work."

Extended Learning were so insightful, and provided wonderful guidance
throughout the process."
