  • Management Economics and Finance: specialize in Management or Finance.
  • Marketing Management: explore topics related to consumer psychology and product development.
  • Public Management: combine politics, law and business.

Our students work together to develop new business ventures and participate in national and international business competitions – many of which they have won!

In your first year you’ll learn the essential skills and knowledge of business management, giving you a solid foundation for the years ahead. Students can apply Undeclared from high school and determine their interests before selecting a major in their 2nd semester.

Fact #3: CBaSE - Your new BFF

The Centre for Business and Student Enterprise is where Commerce students can apply their business knowledge and gain work experience while earning credit! Through CBaSE students can apply for start-up funding, consult on local business projects and even receive support to attend industry events.

With the exception of Leadership and Organizational Management, co-op is offered for all of our Commerce majors. Gain work experience and build your professional network while attending university. Students can complete their co-op terms anywhere in Ontario, Canada or even internationally!

Fact #5: Lots of Student Work Space

Macdonald Hall was recently transformed into the College of Business and Economics. This updated building features tons of student work space, “break out” rooms for studying and presentations, modern classrooms and a place to grab a snack or coffee before getting down to business!
