International Bachelor of Business Administration

One of only a few such programs in Canada, students in this four-year program develop business skills with a global perspective by focusing their studies on a specific global region. A semester of study in this region is required to develop cross-cultural communication skills and cultural understanding. This program is an excellent opportunity for students interested in working in the global environment.

Students may also choose a minor from the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences or, with careful planning, a minor from the Faculty of Science or School of Music.
