    Testimonials

    There is no doubt that attending St. Lawrence College’s Business program in Brockville upgraded my skills in Accounting and Finance, and the program provided me with a more current understanding of all business practices.  In addition to furthering my business skillset in Marketing and Sales, it also reinforced that  “people skills” are a key component of success in any business. In December 2015, I successfully opened a new retail store “Ebb & Flo – The Art of She” in downtown Brockville. The Business program at SLC Brockville is an essential educational program that anyone thinking about starting, or already operating, a business should have on their “to-do” list.
