Bachelor of Business Administration

The objective of the Bachelor of Business Administration program is to develop graduates who possess the knowledge, skills, perspectives and attitudes to become effective managers. To attain this objective the BBA program combines the acquisition of conceptual knowledge with the development of analytical, communication and leadership skills. Each stream in the BBA program consists of an integrated set of required courses in business, economics, information systems and statistics complemented by elective courses in the arts and/or sciences.

BBA students work with faculty who have significant practical business experience and whose research interests are relevant to practicing managers. Faculty employ a variety of applied learning approaches (projects, presentations, simulations, field trips). In class learning approaches include class discussions, case analyses, lectures, readings, films and guest speakers. The goal is to ensure that each graduate is prepared to contribute effectively in large or small organizations, or to begin graduate study.

The BBA program provides majors in accounting, enterprise development, finance, information systems, leadership studies, and marketing; BBA Honours are available in accounting, enterprise development, finance, information systems, leadership in management, and marketing; and BBA Joint Honours in business administration and economics. Each BBA stream offers a primarily classroom-based option and a co-op, work-study option.

The Programs:

  • BBA General Degree
  • BBA Major Degree
  • BBA Honours Degree
