As a result of the business and management orientation of VPC programs, VPC has been able to establish innovative and collectively beneficial articulation agreements with public and private post-secondary educational institutions across British Columbia and Europe thereby providing higher education system access and enabled academic pathways for VPC graduates seeking advanced study in British Columbia at the baccalaureate and graduate levels.
VPC’s first articulation agreement was established with Hawaii Pacific University in 2000 which subsequently was followed-up with a number of British Columbia-based articulation agreements with Capilano College in 2005; Royal Roads University in 2006; Vancouver Island University in 2010; Trinity Western University in 2011; British Columbia Institute of Technology in 2016; and, Vancouver Community College in 2018. While the majority of these agreements have been extended for multiple terms, separate additional articulation agreements, which involve new programs, were established with Capilano University and Trinity Western University in 2019.
As a nationally recognized educator for the global hotel and hospitality management industries, VPC was also able to establish multiple term articulation agreements with Swiss-based business and hospitality management schools including Caesar Ritz Colleges, Glion Institute of Higher Education, HIM Hotel Institute in Montreux, and, the SHMS Swiss Hotel Management School, a member of the Swiss Education Group which is currently the largest private hospitality educator in Switzerland. VPC’s articulation agreements offer VPC students with expedited third year entry into a number of baccalaureate business programs with specializations in Tourism, Hospitality Management, International Business and Business Management.
