Program of Study:

Effective September 2015, ADMN course codes will be replaced with COMM codes. This table explains the course equivalencies to help students and others understand the transition to the new COMM course codes in the BBA program.

The 4-year online Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree will be delivered in a 2+2.5 format with course offerings delivered over three semesters annually in a flexible online environment.  Courses are offered in September, January and May each year.  Students are required to complete a minimum of 6-credits yearly.  The only in-person requirement is the final examination – usually written near your permanent address.

Courses are offered in the areas of marketing, organizational behaviour, human resources, accounting, finance, operations and strategy.  Several upper division business administration electives are available, including accounting courses that can be applied towards the CPA PREP requirements.  The BBA also offers students the opportunity to complete elective courses in areas other than business administration – encouraging exposure to other disciplines.  

The program consists of 120 credits.  Students work asynchronously and in groups to complete assignments using online technologies. 

Generally, students will receive advanced standing for all first year courses with the exception of statistics and management science.  Some advanced standing will be provided for 2000 level courses.  Most students will be required to complete courses in management accounting, finance, marketing, operations and strategy.
