Have you been thinking about a second degree?

It’s getting easier for learners to earn an AU undergraduate business degree!

The Faculty of Business at AU (AU-FB) has been working hard behind the scenes to open the Bachelor of Commerce (BComm) program to more learners.

Second undergraduate degree

Learners who hold a recognized first degree in a field outside of business or management and are looking to do a BComm degree may be eligible for up to 60 credits of block transfer towards the first two years of the BComm program. View an outline of the new BComm program regulations.

Why should you do the BComm program at AU?

The BComm program at AU was recently renewed and offers learners a powerful, recognized undergraduate business degree.  Not only will you get the technical skills and knowledge you need but you will have the opportunity to hone your soft skills and work on your resume in the artificial intelligence powered, virtual cooperative learning experience, ADMN 405. You also have the opportunity to learn from some of Canada’s best online business educators and researchers.

What will I learn in the BComm program?

Whether learners are looking to develop technical disciplinary expertise, to deepen their managerial and research expertise, or to enhance their careers, the renewed BComm increases student choice, flexibility, and ability to personalize their own learning journey. AU-FB’s BComm program specifically has been renewed to be more accessible to new populations of learners, notably Indigenous peoples and business professionals.

You can choose from the following majors:

  • Accounting
  • Finance
  • Business technology management
  • Human resources management
  • Marketing
  • Indigenous business
  • General
