Non-profit and Social Entrepreneurship Program
Non-profits and voluntary organizations employ 12 percent of Canada’s workforce and contribute $75.9 billion to the nation’s economy. These numbers continue to grow as business approaches are being used to talk about social issues like poverty or the environment. This means there is an increasing demand for business graduates in this sector. Students who choose this stream could get jobs as government policy analysts or sustainability specialists.
In addition to the required general courses for a BCom, students specializing in Non-profit and Social Entrepreneurship can take the following:
Most students should choose to take their introductory business courses and as many Common Curriculum courses as possible in their first year. This gives them greater flexibility in their second or third year to participate in an exchange at one of our partner institutions around the globe. Every student is assigned a faculty advisor when they pay their tuition deposit to help with course selection throughout their program.
Program streams allow for specialization within a degree program and prepare students for employment and professional studies.
