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.

Testimonials

The BPSYC program really is the best of both worlds; it balances the theory of a degree while putting that knowledge into practice. A theoretical foundation is taught from day one, as is research and an understanding of the literature. Alongside these aspects, students learn early on how to comprehensively assess, and create interventions using a client-centered approach. They then apply these skills to real life settings and workplaces, where it is a necessity to be flexible and respectful in multidisciplinary environments. As a graduate of the program, my training and placement experience gave me an edge when applying for graduate school. When I entered my graduate education in Counselling Psychology, I already had a comfort level with reviewing research, determining best practices and assessing case models for clients. I also had the knowledge of many different intervention strategies, as well as when they are appropriate for use and how to use them. I attribute my education at St. Lawrence College to preparing me for this experience and obtaining an SSHRC scholarship to conduct research in the Coping Experiences of 911 Communication Workers. I would not have gotten the training or the experience working closely with my professors and others in the field, had I attended a traditional university setting.

“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
