The need for process quality improvement expertise is greatly needed in both the public and private sector organizations. Both are driven to be more responsive with services and products while experiencing significant budgetary constraints, while private sector organizations experience the additional pressures of competition, retaining market share and enhancing profitability.

Graduates are trained to make significant contributions to both sectors. The students who will mostly likely be very successful in this field will have the following characteristics:

Maturity – The student who has had practical experience after their university education, is in the position to see the challenges organizations face in delivering their product or service. This student will appreciate that increasing customer satisfaction is extremely important to business success and that how we setup and manage our business processes can help or hinder. A mature student will also appreciate that excellent leadership and interpersonal skills are vital in making long-lasting improvements. A mature student will most likely have the wisdom to see improvement opportunities and the determination to pursue them.

Education – As a minimum, a  Bachelor’s university degree will help the student to succeed in this field. Since quality can be improved in all types of organizations, a degree in Business, Science, Health, Engineering or Arts field will be useful.

Analytical – The successful graduate will be one who can identify a problem and by applying a set of tools, techniques and concepts, can determine the root cause(s) and also explore improvement methodologies.

Communicator – Someone who is an excellent communicator will do very well in this field. Quality issues in organizations are rarely isolated to one defined area, but are more often the result of interaction(s) between business areas. A successful quality improvement specialist will be able to communicate effectively with multi-disciplinary groups in identifying, analyzing issues and implementing solutions.

Job Market – The graduate of the Organizational Quality Management program will have the skills and experience to work in, but not restricted to, the following areas:

  • Process Improvement Analyst
  • Quality Auditing
  • Quality Strategy development
  • Quality Engineering

With escalating demand for environmental awareness, there is an increasing need for highly-skilled personnel capable of working in the fields of environmental auditing and assessment. This program builds proficiency and adds depth to the knowledge platform of students, allowing them to specialize in, or broaden, their expertise in a range of disciplines including biodiversity conservation, environmental law and policy, as well as environmental chemistry.

  9. Hemali says :

    Can I start working part time since day 1 of my arrival in Canada under this program? For how many hours.

    • Geebee Counsellor says :

      Please read the following excerpts of the rule changes suggested by CIC, which will be implemented from June 1, 2014.

      ‘Study permits will automatically authorize the holder to work off-campus for up to 20 hours per week during the academic session and full-time during scheduled breaks without the need to apply for a separate work permit. The study permit holder must be pursuing academic, vocational or professional training of six months or more that leads to a degree, diploma or certificate at a designated institution.’

      This clearly indicates that you can work off campus part time during your studies immediately once you arrive in Canada. Also note that students can work full time during vacations.

  10. Hemali says :

    I completed my 2 graduate certificate degrees; so can I now immediately file for PR?

    • Geebee Counsellor says :

      Since you have completed your 2 graduate certificates you will be eligible to apply for 3 years work permits. You can’t immediately file for PR. Once you obtain a full time employment in Canada it will take anywhere between 1-6 years to apply for PR.

      Getting a Permanent Residency in Canada depends upon number of things. Also there are a few different categories under which you can claim points and apply for PR. As of for now the current requirement to apply for PR in Canada is 67 points. The PR process, it requirements vary from province to province. Provinces like Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba have comparatively favourable PR opportunities. So PR is a subjective factor. But if understand the prevailing situations, it is not very difficult to get PR in Canada.

  11. Vishal says :

    I have done my bachelors in Mechanical Engineering in 2009; can I apply for Project Management + Mobile and Social Media Management?

    • Geebee Counsellor says :

    could you plz elaborate.

  13. khushbu says :

    I am currently pursuing IBM from Algonquin College; can I enroll for Event Management + Business Intelligence Research right away or only after completion of the course?

    • Geebee Counsellor says :

      Since you are already pursuing IBM program at Algonquin College it would be advisable to enrol for next intended program of study only after completion of the existing program. Although withdrawal from current program is possible but there are many complications which may lead you to financial loss and will have not any favourable implications on your profile.

      So it is strongly recommended that you complete your current program and then pursue the program of your choice.

  14. Meet says :

    I have an unconditional offer letter for Victimology, can I apply for Organizational Quality Management and get the new combine unconditional offer letter for Algonquin College

    • Geebee Counsellor says :

      As of for now Algonquin College is not offering combined program option for Victimology and for Organizational Quality Management.

      But once you are at Algonquin College to pursue your Victimology program get in touch with the concerned department and apply for Organizational Quality Management program. You can generally pursue the Organizational Quality Management program immediately after the completion of your Victimology program or with 4 months/ one semester of completion.

    • Geebee Counsellor says :

      After successful completion of this 2 year PG Diploma programs at Algonquin college your are eligible to apply for a 3 year work permit.

      Getting a Permanent Residency in Canada depends upon number of things. Also there are a few different categories under which you can claim points and apply for PR. As of for now the current requirement to apply for PR in Canada is 67 points. The PR process, it requirements vary from province to province.

  16. Debojeet says :

    Do I have to file for study visa again before starting the second program or will I directly get the visa for 2 years?

    • Geebee Counsellor says :

      The PG Diploma offered by Algonquin are 2 years in duration offering two specializations. Since it will be a combined offer letter you will get student visa for 2 years for the entire 2 year program.

  17. Sukhvinder says :

    Do I get single offer letter or combine offer letter for both programs?

    • Geebee Counsellor says :

      Yes since you are applying for both the programs together it is possible to get a combined offer letter.

  18. Sukhvinder says :

    Is there any Co-op available with the course? Are there any extra charges for Co-op?

    • Geebee Counsellor says :

      Yes at Algonquin College there are a few OCGC programs which include a 16 week co-op term in the program.
      The following programs are currently offered at Algonquin College with co-op option

      Business Intelligence System Infrastructure
      Geographic Information Systems
      Organizational Quality Management
      Environmental Management and Assessment

      Instead of regular tuition fees which is generally 6500-8500 CAD per semester the student has to pay a nominal ancillary fee of 465 CAD for his co-op term. This will not only save his tuition fees but also give him valuable industry exposure.

  19. Kiya says :

    I have done my bachelors in Psychology in 2011; Can I apply for Human Resource Management and Sport Business Management

    • Geebee Counsellor says :

      Currently Algonquin College is not offering a combined offer for HRM with Sport Business Management. But once you are at Algonquin College to pursue your HRM program get in touch with the concerned department and apply for Sport Business Management program. You can generally pursue the Sport Business Management program immediately after the completion of your HRM program or within 4 months/ one semester of completion.

  20. Dishank says :

    I am currently pursing Culinary Skills-Chef Training program; can I enrol for Marketing Management / Marketing and Business Intelligence Research?

    • Geebee Counsellor says :

      Marketing Management / Marketing and Business Intelligence Research at Algonquin college are graduate certificate programs. The student should have completed a bachelors degree or at least a 3 year diploma in relevant field to be eligible to apply for these programs.

      Culinary Skills-Chef Training program is an undergraduate program which can be pursued after standard 12th. So if you have completely your high school then you are not eligible to apply for these graduate certificates.

      In case you have completed your bachelors degree or 3 year diploma, your admission still would be dependent upon the stream in which you would have completed bachelors. So in most cases pursuing Marketing Management / Marketing and Business Intelligence Research is not advisable.

      Also not that any drastic deviation in fields of your 2 academic programs in Canada is not favourably looked upon.

  21. monisha says :

    I enrolled for International Business Management in September 2013 intake but I want to start with Financial Service Management in January 2015 intake. Is that possible under the same offer letter?

    • Geebee Counsellor says :

      The IBM program at Algonquin College is 8 months in duration and hence will get over by May 2014 assuming that you begin your program in September 2013. To get a combined offer the student should enrol immediately after completion of the first program or with 4 months / 1 semester after completion of the first program.

  22. Akki says :

    My IELTS expires within 6 months of Course start. Do I have to re-appear IELTS again before the beginning of the second course?

    • Geebee Counsellor says :

      If your IELTS is valid till the commencement of the program, I believe that should suffice the need for English proficiency requirements. No need for you to appear for IELTS again.

  23. hannah says :

    I enrolled for campus accommodation for first 6 months of my course; can I extend it for further 1.5 years till the course completes?

    • Geebee Counsellor says :

      Yes you can very much extend your stay in the hostel accommodation provided you apply on time for your extension and provided there is availability of accommodation at Algonquin. You should check with the accommodation office at Algonquin college and inform them about your need to extend your stay at college accommodation.

      Also once your approval of accommodation comes you should pay the necessary charges before stipulated period of time.

  24. Rupa says :

    i have enrolled for Project Management and will get 1 year of work permit so can I enroll for the second program after working for 1 year? Will I have to undergo admission and visa process again

    • Geebee Counsellor says :

      You can surely enrol for another program after pursuing your current Project Management program but there are few points which you need to keep in mind.
      Firstly the gap between to academic program should not exceed more than one semester which is usually 4 months. So you can either pursue your second program immediately after the completion of your first program or within 4 months of its completion. If you complete your second program as per these conditions you will be eligible for 2-3 years of work permit.

      Secondly once you claim a work permit after the first program you cannot claim it for the second time. This means that after the second program you won’t be eligible to apply for 8/12 months post study work permit again. Yes you will need to extend/apply to the college for admission as per their entry requirements and will have to apply for student visa.

  25. jagruti solanki says :

    I am currently pursuing Geographic Information Systems; when can I enrol for Environmental Management and Assessment?

    • Geebee Counsellor says :

      You should ideally pursue your second graduate certificate program immediately once you complete your current program. If not immediately you should enrol within 4 months/one semester after completion of current program and not later than that. In both the cases you are eligible to apply for 3 years work permit after completion of second program.

  26. Anjana says :

    I have done 12th standard, are there such programs available at Undergraduate Level?

    • Geebee Counsellor says :

      There are considerable choices for Undergraduate studies at Algonquin College (for e.g). Algonquin offers you a range of certificates, Diplomas, Advanced Diploma & bachelors degree programs to choose from. In fact there are many programs which are Co-op based, which helps students to gain valuable industry experience while they are studying. Science, Engineering and Technology, Business, Media, Hospitality, Health Sciences, Nursing are few of the popular subjects at Algonquin College.
