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

My time at St. Lawrence changed the direction of my life, professionally and personally.

Graduating from McMaster with a B.A. and later from Queens' with a B.Ed did little to get me a job or satisfaction in life. After working with a previous graduate from two St. Lawrence programs, I took her advice and enrolled in Autism and Behaviour Science for the 2012-2013 academic year. With knowledge and skills I gained from this program, I was able to secure several job offers in Ontario and in Alberta. After working with the phenomenal Terry Duncan at Children's Autism Services of Edmonton, I moved into my current position as a behavioural specialist at a residential care company in Edmonton. I love my job because I can make effective change in people's lives every day.

Personally, I made lifelong friends with my program colleagues and greatly enjoyed working in the Math and Writing Center. I learned that its not necessarily about competition for the next job (as it always seems to be with teaching), but about the network you build to help each other. While in my program, I met with Early Childhood Educators, Personal Support Workers, psychology students and other future professionals; Human Services is about helping people and the best way to do that is through team approach. In part due to my time at St. Lawrence, I have a wonderful team.

“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
