MGMT*4000 Change

If your academic calendar year is 11/12, 12/13 or 13/14 then the information below applies to you.

Effective Fall 2014, there was an important change to MGMT*4000--Strategic Management. This course is listed in your schedule of studies with a credit weight of 1.0 (a double weight course). Beginning Fall 2014, the credit weight of this course has been reduced to 0.5 credits. It is critical to note that you must therefore take an additional 0.5 credit course (specified by major; see table below) to replace the reduction in credit weight and maintain the correct number of credits in order to graduate.

To clarify, the total number of credits you need to complete for your degree has not changed, only the distribution of those credits.

While this change is not reflected in your Schedule of Studies in the Undergraduate Calendar, your Program/Academic Evaluation--available through WebAdvisor, has been updated.

In addition to MGMT 4000, you must also take the additional 0.5 credit course as outlined in the following table.

Major (Regular and Co-op) Required course(s) to make-up for reduction in credit weight from 1.0 to 0.5 for MGMT*4000
ACCT Additional 4000 level ACCT course (this course must be over and above the minimum courses required for the ACCT degree--contact professor Elliott Currie ( for details.
FAB Additional Restricted Elective (increase from 1.5 to 2.0)
HAFA Additional List B Restricted Elective (increase from 2.0 to 2.5 [If CHEM1100 is not required, then the number of required List B Restricted Electives is 3.0.])
LOM & HRM Elective (free)
MKMN MGMT 3020--Corporate Social Responsibility
MEF One of ECON 4400--Economics of Organizations and Corporate Governance, ECON 4780--Topics in Industrial Organization or ECON 4800--Competitiveness and Strategic Advantage
PMGT One of ECON 4400--Economics of Organizations and Corporate Governance or ECON 4800--Competitiveness and Strategic Advantage
REH MGMT 3020--Corporate Social Responsibility or REAL 4870—Sustainable Real Estate.
TMGT Additional List A Restricted Elective (increase from 2.0 to 2.5)

As MGMT*4000 is your senior capstone B.Comm course, all prerequisites must be successfully completed prior to the beginning of the course. Students will not be waived into this course if they are missing prerequisites or attempting to take any of the prerequisites concurrently with MGMT 4000.
