- Learn how to start a business,
- Major course preparation for the GMAT or GRE exams, and

Strategic Course Scheduling
Core transfer courses are offered year-round, including during the summer session. Many courses are offered in a variety of modalities to meet student scheduling needs, such as in-person, day, evening, hybrid and online. We also offer some courses on a strategic late-start or an accelerated path for students with additional scheduling demands.
As a part of the San Mateo Community College District, our program offers students even greater flexibility with additional course offerings at our other two district campuses, College of San Mateo and Skyline College.
Smaller is Better
Our small class sizes ensure better results for our students where each student is noticed and has the opportunity to establish one-on-one relationships with faculty and the campus community.
Business faculty are experienced in many industries, including government and not-for-profit organizations. Cañada College is a member of the Redwood City Chamber of Commerce. You can learn more about our current faculty members here, and learn how you can apply to teach business courses at Cañada College here.
