Develop industry-relevant skills to succeed in management-level positions in private and public sector organizations. Make employer connections and earn academic credits as you participate in paid co-op work experience, international exchange and networking opportunities.
Qualified students can enter the degree program at any year level. You may opt for a traditional two-plus-two approach, first completing a two-year diploma in business administration, plus two years of additional study to obtain the Bachelor of Business Administration degree (BBA). You can also apply previous coursework from a wide range of university-level studies toward the degree program.
After graduation, you will be well-prepared for management-related employment opportunities in both private and public sector organizations, or you may opt to pursue your own business ventures. You may also be eligible for membership in the Canadian Institute of Management and the Human Resources Management Association. If you are interested in earning a CHRP (Certified Human Resources Professional) designation, a degree is a requirement and the general management degree option will help prepare you to write the CHRP examination.
Co-operative education alternates paid, program-related work experience with academic study. The practical experience gained on these supervised, structured work terms is an integral part of the student’s education. The result is increased confidence, new employment contacts and practical real-world experience locally, on the Island, provincially or internationally.
