Bachelor of Commerce (BComm)

Why choose Business?

Business scholars ask questions such as: What differentiates a product from its competition? How do you create a strategic plan? What is the unique value proposition?

A Business (BUSI) concentration will allow you to select concentration courses that best match your personal interests and intended career path. Whether you're interested in launching a venture locally, or taking on a global career opportunity, we'll help you build the connections and skills to succeed. You'll complete formal presentations, group projects and various case studies during your degree. 

Career opportunities

Highly sought after by consulting companies, a business concentration prepares students with varied knowledge easily adaptable to the continuously changing job-market and economic landscape. As a graduate of the Bachelor of Commerce degree with a concentration in business, you'll be prepared for global career opportunities in the areas of entrepreneurship, management, sales, and more.

A Bachelor of Commerce degree can also prepare you for graduate studies or another professional degree such as law, medicine, veterinary medicine, or education.

Detailed course information

Being a general business studies undergrad gave me the flexibility to explore and pursue my interests in a variety of disciplines. Besides the core business curriculum, I was able to take courses in sustainability, energy development, leadership, indigenous studies, international business, business law and human resources arbitration. All have been invaluable in my career. Some of the more memorable experiences were doing the Haskayne Wilderness Retreat, a mock HR arbitration, and meeting peers from all majors at the Haskayne School of Business. Participation in the co-op program with Shaw and Shell Canada was fantastic and set up my early career success.
