With 11 majors to choose from, studying towards a Bachelor of Commerce (BCom) is the perfect way to start your career in business.
First Year Core Courses
To graduate with a BCom you must complete the requirements of at least one of the 11 major subjects. Each major includes in its compulsory courses five 100-level courses (75 points) selected from six 'core' BCom courses. A minimum of 105 points needs to be completed in your first year to finish your BCom within three years. Most students will take 120 points in their first year.
The BCom core courses are:
- ACCT 102 Accounting and Financial Information
- Either ECON 104 Introduction to Microeconomics or ECON 105 Introduction to Macroeconomics or ECON 199 (a STAR course for secondary school students)
- INFO 123 Information Systems and Technology
- MGMT 100 Fundamentals of Management
- STAT 101 Statistics 1
It is desirable to complete the core courses in your first year of study as they provide a good general business background and are prerequisites (required courses) for 200 and 300-level Commerce courses. However, it is possible to complete some of these courses in your second and third years depending on the requirements of your BCom major.
