Bachelor of Commerce

Improve Business Beyond The Bottom Line

For nearly 50 years, U of G has transformed students into leaders of the Canadian and global economies. With a Bachelor of Commerce, you will explore socially responsible and sustainable business - the future of our global economy.

Build a practical knowledge base that includes the mainstream subjects of marketing, economics, human resources and accounting, as well as the specialty subjects of hospitality, real estate, and agriculture. Broaden your studies by completing a minor in a complementary area of business, or study abroad in one of our many exchange programs. Put your skills to work on a real project for a local business for a course credit.

The Gordon S. Lang School of Business and Economics has a new home in MacDonald Hall that includes team learning rooms, student study space, a shareable media centre and student lounge space. Our emphasis is on core objectives such as hands-on learning, social responsibility and community engagement, and we know you will benefit from the open concept spaces that promote collaboration and teamwork among you and your classmates.

When you think, learn and act beyond the financial "bottom line", you will improve how the world does business.
