University of Calgary Calendar 2022-2023 Haskayne School of Business 4. Program Details 4.1 Bachelor of Commerce (BComm) 4.1.3 BComm Honours Program
4.1.3 BComm Honours Program

Continuing Haskayne School of Business Bachelor of Commerce students (any concentration), may apply for the Honours program. Applications are considered for the Fall Term only.

Prospective applicants must meet the admission requirements listed below and must submit a Change of Program request through their Student Centre. Deadline date information is found in this Calendar in Academic Regulations' section D. Change of Faculty or Program. A supplementary application package will be sent to Change of Program applicants by the Haskayne School of Business.

Admission Requirements

Applicants to the BComm (Honours) program must have successfully completed a minimum of 48 units by the Fall term to which they are seeking admission, including the following six prescribed courses completed no later than in the preceding Winter Term:

  1. Entrepreneurship and Innovation 317
  2. Management Studies 217
  3. Management Studies 391
  4. Strategy and Global Management 217
  5. Statistics 213
  6. Statistics 217

Admission to the program is based on the calculation of the grade point average over the most recent course work to a maximum of 30 graded units (University of Calgary courses and/or transfer courses taken at other institutions). All grades within a term are included except where the number of courses taken within a term exceeds that required to fulfill (to a maximum of) 30 units, in which case the highest grades are used. Applicants must have a minimum grade point average of 3.30 (calculated as outlined above), as well as a minimum grade point average of 3.30 over the six prescribed courses. Spring Intersession courses taken after May 1 in the year of admission are not used in the calculation of the grade point averages.

In addition to meeting the minimum grade point averages, applications are evaluated on the basis of an interview and the documents submitted in the admission application package.

Admission is competitive and meeting the minimum requirements is not a guarantee for admission. The business school reserves the right to limit the number of students admitted into the BComm (Honours) program. Students on academic sanction are not eligible for the BComm (Honours) program.

Progression Requirements

BComm (Honours) students are subject to the same progression requirements already in place for all BComm students. In addition, academic performance is assessed each year at the end of the Winter term to determine eligibility to continue in Honours. A minimum grade point average of 3.30 over all courses completed since the last Honours assessment is required for continuation in the program.

Students may opt out of the BComm (Honours) program at any time and complete the regular BComm program.
