A Bachelor of Commerce degree takes a minimum of three or four years (90 – 120 credits) of full-time study, depending on your academic background. All JMSB students follow a core business curriculum coupled with a JMSB major, which may be combined with a minor in another discipline or any combination of elective courses that interest them.
A Minor in Human Resource Management (12 credits) is available only to JMSB undergraduate students. This minor fulfills half of the 24 elective credits in your BComm and complements your major field of study.
