Applicants to the B.Comm. program who want a flexible introduction to business studies should consider entering as an unspecialized student. Students must declare one of the 9 majors in order to gain access to required courses. This must be done no later than mid-February in semester two.

Liberal Education Requirement

As part of the graduation requirement all students within the B.Comm. Program are required to complete 1.50 credits from at least two different subject prefixes as listed under the B.Comm. Program Information section of the undergraduate calendar.
