Specializations of Study

The business program offers a general commerce degree as well as specializations in Accounting, Small Business and Entrepreneurship, Non-profit and Social Entrepreneurship, and Environmental Management. In the near future, we will also be adding two more: Sports Management and Computing Science.

We believe in the importance of a strong liberal arts program, so we require all business students to take significant classes in other subject areas. This means business students have the flexibility to take courses in other disciplines that interest them. Our hope is that you graduate with a broader perspective on how business connects with society.

General Bachelor of Commerce
This program is by far the most popular choice among our students. It gives you the freedom to select courses to fit your career goals. Interested in minoring in a non-business-related subject like psychology or biology? Want to study abroad for a semester? This is the program for you!

Our accounting specialization prepares you for success in the world of business. It is also a great option if you plan to pursue a Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) designation.  

Small Business and Entrepreneurship
Some of our students come with a business idea they want to turn into reality. Some students aspire to take over a family business. This specialization gives you the know-how you need to run your own business or take over the family firm.

Non-profit and Social Entrepreneurship
Many of our students want to pursue a career in non-profit or social sectors. This specialization equips you with the skills and knowledge to be an effective leader in an organization that advocates for a social cause.

Environmental Management
A growing number of students want to combine their passion for environmental issues with good business practices.  This specialization provides the opportunity to pursue both goals.

Specialization in Computing Science Management will be offered beginning in Fall 2017, and specialization in Sports Management to be offered in the near future.
