The Dufferin-Peel Business Certificate…
Thinking about pursuing a rewarding career in the business world?  Success starts with a good Post Secondary education, and one way students get a competitive advantage is by having a Dufferin-Peel Business Certificate among their credentials when applying to college and university programs.  It's more than a piece of paper; it is tangible recognition for your commitment to at least six high school business courses.  Post-secondary institutions recognize this effort, and so do employers.

The criteria for receiving a Business Certificate:

  • Students must complete a minimum of 6 Business Studies Credits with a minimum average of 60%.
  • Minimum 4 credits coded with a 'B' (i.e.: BTT, BTA, BDI, BBI, BMI, BOH, BDV)
  • 2 other credits can be taken from the following courses:
  • Grade 11 (CIE3M) and/or Grade 12 Economics (CIA4U)
  • 1 Interdisciplinary Business credit (eg.: Sports Marketing)
  • 1 Business-related Cooperative Education credit
  • 1 English (EBT4O) Business Communication credit
