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.

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

The Bachelor of Business Administration at St. Lawrence College is the best decision I ever made in my life. The teachers there are caring and understanding and you are not just a number to them but an actual name and they care about your success. You also get to learn from teachers with actual field experience that have done the job and it isn’t just a theory-based class that you have to sit through. It allows you a lot of chances to network and meet people in your desired field of choice. The BBA teaches you to be a free thinker and to be as creative as you can be. It helps sharpen the skills that you have and add more skills to your toolbox for the future. The BBA is great at rounding your skills in all aspects whether that is Finance, Human Resources, Operations, and Marketing it allows you to experience it all. It was the best four years of my life.

“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
