ABM College and Olds College Partnership


ABM College is pleased to announce a two year joint diploma program with Olds College. The program, starting in June 2017, will require enrolled students to complete their first year of study at ABM College, and their second at Olds College. The program of study will remain the same at both colleges, and students will have the opportunity to study in two uniquely different environments.

Students will have the opportunity to experience a truly Canadian education, with stints in both the busy and vibrant city of Calgary, and the peaceful rural community of Olds:

 With 1.2 million inhabitants, Calgary is Alberta’s most populous city. A growing hub of business, education and entertainment, Calgary also possesses a thriving multicultural identity due its large and diverse immigrant population. The heartland of Alberta, the Town of Olds is known for its stunning botanic gardens, its long and tumultuous history, and a good dose of “old- fashioned hospitality”.

Who Should Enroll?

This program is designed to meet the needs of international students looking to start a career in the Canadian business industry and foreign mid-level employees seeking to enhance their professional expertise in the Canadian business environment.
