Bachelor of Business Administration

Available at: Kingston

Overview

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. Find out more about applying and the levels - here.

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).

Highlights

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.

 

Career Opportunities

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.

Testimonials

I have recently written (and passed!) my C of Q exam in Kingston, and wanted to thank you for the work that you put in teaching me to think like a millwright. "Proper planning prevents poor performance" is something to live by really...
 
The C of Q had lots of procedure questions, what to do and when, and I found a lot of the questions involved turbines to some degree. There were a couple of questions involving troubleshooting a hydraulic system using a given schematic, and more than a couple of questions covering all aspects of vibration analysis. Here are some of the ideas that I remember seeing.
 
- Bevel protractor and mic readings
- Crane lift signals involving movement of the boom
- Good old Pythagoras
- Sling types and % of SWL (choker, basket)
- Regular lifting vs. lifting people ratios
- What to check on a crane if it starts to become out of alignment
- What tool to use when checking continuity in an electric motor
- F = A x P
- Actuator problems in pneumatic circuit (erratic operation, how to fix 'hammer')
- Proper placement of a sequencing valve in a hydraulic circuit
- How and where to check pipe stresses after pump install
- Procedure of motor install to existing pump
- Procedure for drain/check/fill of a fan bearing
- Possible cause of immediate bearing failure upon startup in a condensate pump after long shut down
- Solution to vibration in turbine rotor
- How many/which bearings to fix in a multi bearing system
- Material handling rollers turning corners and weight ratios (4 rollers hold 30 tons, how much should 2 rollers be rated for)
- Fan speed ratios (CFM/HP)
- Alignment readings, figuring out where and how much to shim
- Belt splice angles for belts on small diameter pulleys
- Which way to face spring pin in roller chain when installing
- Where to place vibration analysis equipment for couplings and closed gear boxes
- Where unbalance and coupling misalignment shows in vibration readings
- The difference between predictive and preventative maintenance and what each entail.
 
I hope that some or all of this will help in preparing another squad for success. 
 
Cheers!

“St. Lawrence College offers classes with as few as 20 students and allows us to ask more questions and be more interactive with the teachers.”
Logan Whyte, Year 2, BBA '11

“Going from a large university setting to a small setting has really made me appreciate the benefits of a smaller campus. Namely, the opportunity to connect with teachers and fellow students creates an atmosphere conducive to learning. The teachers are willing to help you get through and are always ready to talk to you and help you. They’re all professionals in their fields and have strong educational backgrounds.”
Monica Pereira, 2011 Graduate, BBA '11
