Business major courses

In addition to the Commerce core, all BComm students will follow 24 credits toward their major. See the courses offered for each major below:


Elective courses

JMSB students are encouraged to round out their business education by taking electives in faculties outside the business school. Expanding one’s general knowledge provides value that will serve our graduates well, regardless of what country, industry, or area of business they end up working in. For example, history or language courses would be of particular benefit to international students; Anthropology and Psychology courses would provide Marketing students with a better understanding of individual markets and cultures.

Business electives & non-business electives

business elective is a course offered by JMSB that is above and beyond one’s Core and Major requirements. For example, if a student is Majoring in Management Information Systems and they take an Accounting course, this course constitutes a Business Elective.

non-business elective is a course offered by a Faculty outside of JMSB. If, for example, a student takes a Philosophy course or an Acting course, this is considered a non-business elective. Electives can be chosen from the Faculties of Arts and ScienceFine Arts, and the Gina Cody School of Engineering and Computer Science.

BComm students

Students in the BComm are required to complete 12 elective credits outside of JMSB. The remaining 12 elective credits may be business or non-business.

BAdmin students

Students in the BAdmin will complete 18 business elective credits as part of their program, as well as 30 non-business elective credits. Out of these 30 credits, 15 must be above the introductory (200) level.
