Bachelor of Business Administration

Earn a four-year Bachelor of Business Administration degree from Laurentian University at St. Lawrence College.

It’s the best of both worlds – university curriculum in a college setting.

About the Bachelor of Business Administration program:

This innovative program provides students the opportunity to earn a four-year Laurentian University degree at St. Lawrence College in Kingston, Canada. The program combines the theoretical underpinnings of university with the practical strengths of college. The relationship provides access to education in a seamless manner, providing fair credit for prior academic study.

One of the distinguishing features of the BBA program is the significant position occupied by elective courses within the broader curriculum.  Fully 45% of all courses will be elective courses. This allows students to tailor the program to meet their particular needs. Students may drill deeply into a particular subject area or explore a range of subject areas that may be of interest.

Students will typically be in classes of 40 students or less, and will often find themselves in classes of less than 20 students in upper year elective courses.  This degree of intimacy allows for a richer, more interactive classroom experience.
