Red Deer College Donald School of Business enrolment surpasses 1,000 students

Nearly six years after Red Deer College’s Donald School of Business opened its doors, its rolls have swelled to more than 1,000 students.

“It’s incredible to consider that, over the last five years, we’ve continued to expand and grow our offerings and our student enrolment has also grown by 82 per cent during this time,” said Darcy Mykytyshyn, Donald School of Business Dean.

“We focus on what we call the three A’s of the Donald School of Business — Achievement through Access and Application.”

The college announced Tuesday that the downtown school’s enrolment has surpassed the 1,000 student mark for the 2016-17 academic year.

“As one of the Schools at Red Deer College, we take great pride in educating students and connecting with local businesses for the benefit of everyone,” says Mykytyshyn. “We’re a part of central Alberta and, while we’re celebrating this 1,000 student milestone, we’re also looking ahead to the exciting ways we can continue to grow.”
