Business Major

Bachelor of Business Administration

Students admitted to the Beedie School of Business for the Fall 2017 term onwards must complete the Business Foundation Program within their first year.

During the first 60 units of the program, students will complete mainly non-business courses, which fall under three categories of courses. The first category consists of lower division requirements that are mainly foundation courses and prepares students for more advanced upper division business courses. The second category consists of courses completed to meet university requirements in writing, quantitative and breadth areas, the Beedie School of Business non-business elective requirement, as well as a minimum of 36 units, outside of the Beedie School of Business*. These first two categories should be completed during the first 60 units.

In the third category, students choose courses that are based on intellectual interest or to achieve academic goals.

The last 60 units of the degree program consist of the core upper division business courses, at least one area of concentration, and lower and upper division electives. In total, students will complete a minimum of 120 units, which must include at least 45 units of upper division coursework.

Students are also required to complete the Business Career Passport program, which consists of six workshops to prepare them for their careers.

*Courses not labelled as BUS or BUEC that are completed as part of the lower division requirements may be used toward the 36 units outside business.
