What will my class schedule look like?

Your schedule will depend on the program that you are enrolled in. The class timetable has been designed so you will have conflict free access to all of the courses you need to complete your program.  

Students in all Donald School of Business diploma and certificate programs offered at the downtown campus will have most, if not all, courses downtown. Where a program provides the opportunity to choose options, business students (primarily in the Business Administration diploma and BBA) will travel to RDC’s main campus for these options.  

Students in the Bachelor of Commerce program will attend classes at the downtown campus for core Donald School of Business courses and will travel to RDC’s main campus for option courses as needed.   In addition, some option courses that are common to a majority of Bachelor of Commerce students may be offered at our downtown campus. 

As you plan your class registration for next year, information about which campus your classes are offered will be outlined on the timetable. And our Academic Advisors and Registration team are here to help you make sense of all the details... every step of the way.

Where did the Donald School of Business get its name?

In October 2007, RDC announced the naming of the College’s first school in recognition of Jack and Joan Donald’s extensive support of the College over the years, including a generous $3 million donation. The Donald School of Business provides a unique learning opportunity that is shaped by the commitments of our donors, Jack and Joan Donald, whose business and community lives are characterized by entrepreneurship, integrity, and community leadership.  Jack and Joan Donald will provide great mentorship for future RDC students through an Entrepreneur-In-Residence program. This is a unique feature of the School, providing direct access for students to entrepreneurial knowledge and experience.
