Program description

International Bachelor of Business Administration (iBBA)

The International Bachelors of Business Administration (iBBA) program is the first of its kind in Canada, offering an innovative, comprehensive, and real-world learning experience for those with aspirations to work abroad after graduation, or simply to learn more about business from an international perspective.

The four-year Honours iBBA program builds on Schulich’s long-standing international reputation. iBBA students examine business through multiple lenses via: internationally-focused core courses; regionally-focused electives; the study of a second language; and a mandatory exchange term at one of Schulich’s leading business school partners around the world.

Students develop a foundation in management that is both relevant and responsive to shifting marketplace needs, with an emphasis on cross-cultural communication and interpersonal skills. Students entering Year 3 can choose to specialize in one or two of the ten areas of specialization offered at Schulich, and can continue their specialized studies while on their mandatory exchange term in Year 3 or 4.
