Specializations of Study

While most students choose to complete a general commerce program, we offer specializations in Accounting, Small Business & Entrepreneurship, Non-profit & Social Entrepreneurship and Environmental Management. In the near future, we will also be adding specializations in 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 that business students have the flexibility to take courses in other disciplines that may interest them.  By doing so, our hope is that you graduate with a broader perspective on how business connects with society.

General BCom Program
By far the most popular choice among our students, this Bachelor of Commerce program gives you freedom to select courses to fit your career goals.  Interested in minoring in a non-business-related subject like psychology or biology? Or how about  studying abroad for a semester? This is the program for you!

Our accounting specialization will prepare 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 make a 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 advocated 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 for you to pursue both goals.

Other Specializations
We are always adding new courses and programs.  Specializations in Sports Management and in Computing Science will be offered beginning in the fall 2017.
