Red Deer College’s Donald School of Business is moving back to the main campus from its downtown location in January.

“The reputation we’ve grown, and the core principles we’ve created within the Donald School of Business are embedded in our everyday fabric as a post-secondary institution,” college president Peter Nunoda said in a statement Monday.

“As we consider our future as Red Deer University, we are excited to provide all our students with increasing opportunities to engage with our local business community and prepare for successful careers. We anticipate this will be one of the areas that we’ll continue to grow in creating a signature RDU student experience.”

The business school is expecting almost 900 students to attend classes in its nine programs during the upcoming academic year, says the college.

“Red Deer College’s connection with, and support of, the heart of this city will remain strong,” the college continued in its statement.

“At our downtown campus, the college will leverage and grow the strong relationships we’ve already built as we continue our commitment to meet the needs of our diverse group of learners with an equally diverse range of programs and services.”

It cited customized corporate and executive training sessions, guest speakers, professional development opportunities, and more, for adult learners and businesses through its school of continuing education.

“Housing these types of lifelong learning opportunities at a downtown campus is something that is often seen within the post-secondary sector, and so the college believes this will fit well as the institution continues to serve all central Albertans.”
