Management Studies At Its Very Best
This degree program prepares students for a variety of managerial roles in a wide range of Canadian businesses including small and medium enterprises (SMEs). They will have the potential to be promoted to mid-level management positions within 5 to 10 years. Students could also pursue graduate management studies or may continue their postgraduate education within an industry designation program of their choosing.
Humber’s Bachelor of Commerce – Management Studies degree program is a four-year program that prepares you to take on a variety of managerial roles in many different types of business.
The program is based on the seven traditional management functions (planning, organizing, staffing, directing, coordinating, reporting and budgeting) and gives you the necessary skills and knowledge to:
develop business strategies
analyze issues from various perspectives
apply classroom work to industry-connected projects
integrate transferable skills such as interpersonal interaction, communication, and organization to all classroom and project work.
In the first two years of the program, you’ll study introductory courses in business fundamentals such as marketing, accounting, economics, and law. In years three and four, you’ll take advanced courses covering all seven management functions, along with business research methods and strategic management.
You’ll also get hands-on learning that provides both the education and the experience employers look for once you graduate. You’ll be taught by professors who are widely known for their real-world connections and background. Our industry-designed, project-based curriculum gives you the opportunity to take your ideas from concept to execution.
In your final year, you will complete a senior-level project, giving you the opportunity to work on a team, problem solve, evaluate strengths and limitations, gather and synthesize data, and make appropriate decisions.
