ABOUT BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION (BBA)
The BBA program at StFX is built around applied learning strategies that will help you prepare to break into a career in accounting, enterprise development, finance, information systems, management and leadership studies and marketing. Your studies will take place within StFX's Gerald Schwartz School of Business, one of the most prestigious undergraduate business schools in Canada.
You will leave with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to become effective managers. This program puts students on the fast track to becoming leaders in a wide range of business disciplines.
BBA IN INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS
The International Business (IB) stream will prepare students with the necessary knowledge and skills needed to succeed in an international business environment. International business activities are providing significant opportunities for Canadian companies and businesses practically of any size and industry. Various globalization processes (cultural, economic, political, etc.) are underlying international business activities and are driving the internationalization of the world economy. Students (and future leaders and managers) who are particularly interested in pursuing a career in the context of international business need to be familiar with the unique theoretical and practical decision-making challenges and opportunities in international business.
Since the purpose of the program is to prepare students to become responsible global citizens and effective and successful managers in an international business context, the new stream will integrate business theory and practices drawing on the various sub-disciplines of business administration. The program will help students to develop or enhance global perspectives, responsibilities and critical thinking, as well as language skills. It will also offer cross-cultural experiences provided by StFX and exchange partners abroad. The IB stream is therefore designed to offer an integrated business program with an international focus emphasizing an experiential international education.
