Time flies. This month, our Nanaimo
campus is celebrating 20 years at their current location.
Sprott Shaw College has actively grown as a career college with a long-standing
reputation of cultivating our students for outside-of-the-box thinking
strategies through hands-on training and practical programs. Founded with a
deep-rooted history originating back over 100 years, Sprott Shaw College is one
of the oldest and largest private colleges in the country.
At the turn
of the 20th century, the first Sprott Shaw College was established
when Robert James Sprott partnered with William Henry Shaw of Shaw Colleges to
open what was then called, Vancouver
Business Institute. Soon thereafter opening the first college, it was
renamed to Sprott Shaw Business Institute,
a name that rings a more recognizable bell today. After the success of the
first campus, Robert Sprott and William Shaw collectively decided to open more
locations across cities in Western Canada including, Vancouver, Victoria, and
over a century of success across 16 campuses in British Columbia today, one of
our earliest campuses celebrates a 20-year milestone in their current location.
This month, our Nanaimo campus celebrates 20 years of success in their current
location. While the Sprott Shaw presence has been evident virtually since the
inception in 1903, the current Downtown Nanaimo location is celebrating its 20th year.
