Bachelor of Business Administration - Marketing

About the program

The Bachelor of Business Administration - Marketing program develops marketing professionals who can effectively blend insight, strategy and creativity to bring extraordinary products and campaigns to the marketplace. The program integrates theory and practice in persuasion, marketing strategy, market research, and branding. During their degree program, students are exposed to marketing in many different settings and work with real-life clients including non-profit organizations, marketing agencies, startups and large corporations across a variety of industries.

Integrated into this four-year degree program are courses that offer students the ability to understand the main functions of business. In addition to the core marketing courses, students also complete courses in accounting, general business, management and statistical analysis, among others.

Four years of academic study in the BBA - Marketing program can be combined with three paid Co-op work terms. Marketing students must apply for admission to the Co-operative Education option and complete academic course requirements in the first four semesters and prior to each work term, meet above-average GPA requirements, and successfully complete an Orientation to Co-operative Education course, which provides them with pre-employment training and eases their transition to the workplace. All of these requirements ensure students are able to make genuine and valuable contributions in the workplace.

The Co-operative Education component of this program connects employers with students who are eager to apply knowledge and skills learned in the classroom. Student workers bring fresh perspective and enthusiastic contributions to an organization while enhancing their skills and confidence. Being a Co-op employer is your opportunity to reach out and build relationships with prospective talent while contributing to outstanding programs.
