Business Administration

Our Program

Algoma University’s four-year Bachelor of Business Administration degree is a unique program, different from other university programs found across the province.

Our faculty are committed to a hands-on learning experience where students are able to establish a personal relationship with their professors.

Algoma University’s student body is one of the most diverse in Canada. With over 22 per cent of our students coming from outside of Canada, our student body is reflective of today’s global marketplace. By having such a diverse classroom, students are exposed to new and differing ideals and opinions, in regard to laws, customs, property governance, and finance.

Once students have graduated from the program, they will have an understanding of alternative business strategies and how to work with a diverse clientele – both of which are assets to resumes! Plus, Algoma U grads know the benefits of working in a diverse workplace, a key question asked in interviews by employers in today’s competitive workforce.

Study in Brampton

Obtain your BBA at our location in downtown Brampton, with easy access to public transportation, shopping, and all of the amenities the city has to offer. Algoma University at Brampton offers accelerated business degrees designed specifically for college graduates and mature students.

Aside from learning in a diverse classroom setting, students are also given plenty of opportunities to network and build upon their connections in the business world. As most know, networking is one of the most crucial aspects of the job search. In today’s competitive workforce, not all jobs are made public; rather, many are advertised through word-of-mouth. People must rely upon colleagues, friends, relatives, and acquaintances to help sell themselves. At Algoma U, our business administration students are constantly interacting with business professionals and institutions in Sault Ste. Marie and the surrounding Algoma region. Students will work with and alongside businesses, developing business plans and strategies to improve on production, effectiveness, and efficiency. Students will also have networking opportunities at the University’s annual Northern Ontario Business Case Competition, where they compete against each other and are judged by regional business experts. Many Algoma U grads have cited these networking opportunities as the keystone to their success, providing them with the opportunity to secure a meaningful career in their field.

In addition, Algoma U’s business administration faculty are experts in the field. Rather than just being educated in business, our professors have experienced risk and success in the workforce. From chartered accountants, to certified management accountants, to presidents of influential organizations, and everything in between, our faculty are experts in the business world, and have practical, working hands-on knowledge which they bring to the classroom on a daily basis.

Algoma University offers flexible programming as well. Whether students want to study on a full-time or part-time basis, or take advantage of the co-operative education opportunities, students can complete the requirements for a business administration degree day or night! Spring and summer term courses also provide added flexibility. Thus, students can achieve real experience in the work world while still working toward completing their degree.

Upon graduation, students in Algoma University’s business administration program will have a strong, well-rounded foundation of business skills and concepts, partnered with the ability to apply these intellectual tools in the challenging and dynamic world of global business. This focus allows our graduates to make a smooth transition from the academic environment to the business world.
