"Through Second Career, I was given the opportunity to return to school to update my skills. My decision on a program was easy as my passion is Financial Services. As part of the Second Career process, I had to investigate several Private Colleges as well as a Public College. It was important to find a good financial service college that would help me meet my goals. I called and arranged to come in for an information meeting with the College Director at Access Business College. I was so impressed with the manner in which the director took the time to explain the school's objectives, programs, standards and schedules. I could tell by looking around the classes and offices that they really cared about their students. I walked out of my information meeting at Access Business College knowing this is where I wanted to attend. I have been in Banking & Financial Services Program for six months. Staff and students at Access Business College in Toronto come from a diverse range of cultures and backgrounds, but everyone is like family. Access Business College is probably the best business college in Toronto. We all support and mentor each other. The staff is all very educated and knowledgeable.

I am so thankful for this opportunity and hope to be able to mentor others in future endeavours."
