Program


The After-Degree program is for students who already possess a University degree to add to their qualifications by acquiring basic business skills. The After-Degree program is not open to students holding a previous degree that is the equivalent of a Business degree, or to students who have completed a sufficient number of Business or related courses so that they could not meet the requirements of Students in the BCom After-Degree  and Program Information . After-Degree students may major in any available area. They should consider a major complementary to their previous degree. After-Degree Students are normally expected to fulfill the course load requirements of Course Load Requirements . However, there is limited space available for students who wish to pursue their program on a Part-time basis. Prior written permission of the Faculty of Business is required. Students are still required to meet all other requirements of the program including the time limit on completion of the degree in Time Limit to Complete Program . Students interested in pursuing this option should contact the Undergraduate Programs Office.
