Faculty of Business Administration Program at Orillia

The Administrative Studies major within the Honours Bachelor of Commerce Program, available at Lakehead University's Orillia campus, has been established to provide students with a unique sequence of business and non-business studies leading to the Honours Bachelor of Commerce degree.

Pre-Business Studies Component - Years 1 and 2
During the first two years, the program emphasizes non-business studies with an introduction to business management studies. The general education emphasis of the first two years of the program allows students to explore a variety of academic interests and potential career paths before committing to an administrative studies program in years three and four.

Business Studies Component - Years 3 and 4
During the final two years, the program focuses on a core curriculum of business management courses that prepares students for a wide range of management careers.

The end result of this four-year program is a graduate who can identify and understand management problems, can develop alternative approaches to solving these problems and can make valuable contributions to organizations and society. Graduates will have a well-rounded education combining non-business education and business studies.
