Small Business and Entrepreneurship

99% of all businesses in the world employ less than 20 workers, and the majority of these small businesses are family-owned. Many of these firms are started by entrepreneurs, people who the Canadian government says are the driving force that bring “innovations to market, launch novel industries, and create high-paying jobs.”  If you want to start your own business, join a family firm, or work for a small company, then this stream is for you.

Course selection
In addition to the required general courses for a BCom, students specializing in Small Business and Entrepreneurship must take the following:

The timing of the program is very flexible, so you can plan your schedule to fit your needs. Most students choose to take several business courses and then complete many foundation and breadth courses in the first year. This is to give 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 to help with course selection throughout their program.
