Overview

To cater to students’ diverse needs and interests, Yorkville University offers a Business Administration program in New Brunswick, a specialization in Project Management in Ontario, and specializations in Accounting, Supply Chain Management, Project Management and Energy Management in British Columbia.

In each Bachelor of Business Administration program, students are challenged to demonstrate their understanding of concepts and theories using a variety of methodologies, including case studies, online simulations, and major projects. These approaches build confidence in the application of the students’ new knowledge.

Each program provides structured opportunities for students to integrate the knowledge they have acquired in real-life business settings to their studies. This connection to real business settings (apply) and student experiences (integrate) creates a level of engagement among students rarely experienced in an undergraduate business program.

Specializations

Yorkville University’s Bachelor of Business Administration allows students the opportunity to acquire detailed knowledge in specific areas of the discipline. The four specialization options offered include Project Management, Energy Management, Accounting, and Supply Chain Management.

Each specialization contains five dedicated courses designed to build a set of core competencies that culminates in a senior project-based Capstone course. This course provides students with an experiential opportunity to reinforce, synthesize, and build on the knowledge and skills they developed in earlier courses, with a practical, applied focus that prepares students to take the next step in their career.

All specializations and the General BBA are offered fully online. On-campus specializations in British Columbia include Project Management, Energy Management, Accounting, and Supply Chain Management. The BBA in Project Management can also be completed on-campus in Toronto, Ontario.
