How often are the intakes for the BBA program?

The intakes for the BBA program run once per year, in September. It's offered through full-time studies only, though students may choose to take a reduced course load. You have ten years in total to complete the program starting from your first course (include BA diploma courses if you are laddering in).

Can I take the BBA program on a part-time or online basis?

Students are accepted to the program on a full-time basis and may choose to reduce their course load during the add/drop period. At this time, classes run during the day only — between the hours of 8 am - 6 pm. 

Please note that by reducing your course load, it will take more time to complete the program and all course requirements must be completed within ten years from the start of your first course.

I'm confirmed in, or waitlisted for the BA diploma and want to switch to the BBA program

If you are confirmed or waitlisted for the BA diploma program and meet the requirements for the BBA degree program, you can contact an academic advisor to discuss your options for switching.

Can I apply to the BBA degree and get credit for my diploma courses?

Graduates of the BA diploma are eligible to apply for advanced standing in the expanded BBA.

Students must meet the BBA admission requirements and admission will be a competitive process. The amount of credit granted may vary based on major and which electives were chosen.

What's the difference between a BA diploma and a BBA degree?

It's important to compare the programs and make the decision that is right for you. You can also contact an academic advisor for more information.
