Future Students

We’re Canada’s undisputed leader in graphic communications management education and our graduates are at the forefront of this $11 billion industry. Our interdisciplinary approach gives you a unique breadth of technological, creative and business expertise, along with unique opportunities to gain industry experience throughout your degree.

Graphic Communications Management prepares students to become well-rounded managers in the printing industries, with a high level of technological and creative literacy. Throughout your time as a GCM student, core courses will build a strong foundation for your technical knowledge and skills, and you’ll learn how to bring a product from concept to design and printing — meaning you get to hold your creations in your hand.

In our premedia labs you’ll use professional digital cameras in a photography studio, as well as photo-quality proofers and printers. In production labs students work with digital, offset and flexographic printing presses, binding and finishing machines, computer-based simulators and specialized material testing equipment.

Our students also develop the technical business skills to be successful managers and business leaders. You’ll hone essential skills in marketing, management, accounting and communication, and have the opportunity to create business plans for ventures you might launch someday. Many of our graduates are entrepreneurs, and we encourage students to think outside the box.

We know classroom learning can only take you so far, which is why we’re committed to ensuring you gain work experience throughout your time at GCM. Our professors are well-connected to industry experts and our Advisory Council includes reps from Canada’s printing leaders who are vying to hire GCM students and graduates. These connections, plus our internship program, Job Fair, Business Plan Expo and industry competitions, set you up with a wide variety of opportunities to pursue your dream career.
