The Amazon home depot site goes live in Canada, with an estimated 1,000 students enrolled, the retailer said Wednesday.
The Kohl School of Business at Kahn Academy is a four-year, $45,000-a-year program for undergraduate and graduate students who want to pursue careers in business, finance, public policy, healthcare, technology and law.
The program is located in Mississauga, Ont.
The site is the first to be open for students in Canada and the first in the United States.
“The Kohls are a family-owned company, with more than 3,000 employees and an alumni network that spans Canada, the United Kingdom and Ireland,” the company said in a statement.
“We’re excited to be a part of a global community of innovators who are working to improve education and the lives of all Canadians.”
Students can sign up for the program through the company’s website or in person through the Kahn Academy’s campus in Mississaugas city centre.
Kohl said it was also the first school in the country to offer a master’s degree, in business and finance.
The company is one of a number of companies trying to open online programs in Canada.
The University of Waterloo is one company that has a student-led business program.
The company has been operating at a small campus in Waterloo since 2014.
In addition to Kohl, other companies in the industry include the University of Toronto’s Entrepreneurship Center, which is working to launch online business programs in all provinces and territories, and the online college and university program The Entrepreneurships Program (EPS) at the University College London, which opened in June.
The Epps School of Finance and Economics at the U.K.’s London School of Economics is also working to open an online program.
