The Bachelor of Business Administration program is designed to prepare students for effective careers in the management of private and non-profit organizations in Canada and around the world. The curriculum helps students develop the conceptual, human, technical and operational knowledge and skills that are critical for success.
A Bachelor of Business Administration degree (BBA) can lead to careers in accounting, entrepreneurship, finance, general management, human resource management, international business, and marketing. Armed with a thorough knowledge of business principles and practice, graduates have gone on to pursue careers as accountants, financial analysts, policy analysts, corporate executives, civil servants, independent entrepreneurs, marketing managers, human resource managers and much much more.
The BBA program begins with one year of qualifying courses. Students enter through admission in the Excellence Program and become Year One BBA students or complete a qualifying year in the Faculty of Business Administration before being internally transferred into the BBA program.

Major in International Business
The world economy has fundamentally shifted in just the past couple of decades. The volume of goods, services, and investment crossing borders have increased exponentially. At the same time, technology has made old barriers to cross-border business such as distances, languages, time zones, cultures, and business norms increasingly irrelevant. Instead of ignoring this increasing interdependence of the world economy, we recognize it as globalization and enthusiastically study it.
Who It's For
International business is not just for people who want to spend their careers traveling and working in other cultures. Familiarity with the international business environment has become a required skill for all successful participants in today’s knowledge economy.
What It Looks Like
International business examines core business functions such as finance, marketing, human resource management, and operations in the international context. However, it does not stop there.
Courses cover the political, economic, socio-cultural, technological and environmental forces that shape the global business environment. In international business courses, students also investigate international trade theory, international organizations and the monetary system, and international business culture.
A career in International Business
Government agencies, multi-national corporations, import/export companies, aid organizations, and universities all hire international business graduates. International business students sometimes combine their majors with other kinds of training, making themselves extraordinarily competitive in more traditional business fields such as accounting, finance, marketing, transportation, and shipping/logistics.
