BACHELOR OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION (BBA)
Laurentian University offers a four-year Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree at St. Lawrence College in Kingston. The program combines the theoretical underpinnings of university with the practical strengths of college. The relationship is all about providing access to education in a seamless manner, providing fair credit for prior academic and experiential learning.
There are two primary streams of access to the BBA degree program: an entry level, four-year degree and an accelerated level designed for college diploma graduates where credit is given for prior learning and experience. The accelerated level entry permits the completion of the degree in as little as three academic terms.
The core subjects in the degree program cover the fundamentals of economics, accounting, financial information systems, financial management, management decision making, organizational behaviour, human resources, strategic planning, and marketing. Communication, analytical and computer skills are emphasized. Elective courses permit students to tailor the BBA to suit their own personal objectives.
In addition to securing full-time employment upon completion of the program, students may apply to graduate and professional programs. Recent graduates have gone on to Master's programs in areas including Business, Economics, and Finance, and to professional programs including Law (LLB), Education (BEd) and Accounting (CPA).
One of the distinguishing features of the Laurentian University BBA at St. Lawrence College is the significant position occupied by elective courses within the broader curriculum. For students enrolling in the four-year stream, fully 45% of all courses will be elective courses. This allows students to tailor the program to meet their particular needs and interests. Students may drill deeply into a particular subject area (e.g. Accounting) or explore any number of subject areas that may be of interest.
Students will typically be in classes of 40 students or less, and will often find themselves in classes of less than 20 students in upper year elective courses. This degree of intimacy allows for a richer, more interactive classroom experience.
Recent graduates of university undergraduate programs in Business have found employment as financial auditors and accountants, financial managers, banking credit and investment managers, sales, marketing and advertising managers, retail trade managers, and specialists in human resources.
