Our organization promotes and encourages continuous learning and achievement of career success for our graduates.”

“The Mount is known for its flexible approach to learning for students, and we are pleased to be able to extend this to NBCC students,” says Kim Kienapple, Dean of Professional Studies at the Mount. “Students transferring from NBCC will benefit from our supportive faculty, small class sizes and the option to complete the program in class, or through distance learning on either a full or part-time basis.”
