Humber’s Bachelor of Commerce – Management Studies degree program prepares you to take on a variety of managerial roles in many different types of business.
The program is based on the seven traditional management functions (planning, organizing, staffing, directing, co-ordinating, reporting and budgeting) and gives you the necessary skills and knowledge to:
develop business strategies
analyze issues from various perspectives
apply classroom work to industry-connected projects
integrate transferable skills such as interpersonal interaction, communication and organization to all classroom and project work.
Our program starts with a foundation of business studies in areas such as organizational behaviour, law, economics, finance and accounting, marketing, and operations management. Specialization courses cover all seven management functions along with business research methods and strategic management.
You’ll also get hands-on learning that provides both the education and the experience employers look for once you graduate. You’ll be taught by professors who are widely known for their real-world connections and background. Our industry-designed, project-based curriculum gives you the opportunity to take your ideas from concept to execution.
In your final year, you will complete a senior-level project, giving you the opportunity to work on a team, problem solve, evaluate strengths and limitations, gather and synthesize data, and make appropriate decisions.
Upon successful completion of the program, a graduate will:
Analyze the impact and long range global challenges of economic, environmental, ethical, legal, political, sociological and technological factors upon the strategy, management and behaviour of domestic and international organizations.
Analyze, evaluate and solve international business and economic problems, using diverse economic frameworks and relevant business models, creativity, analysis, independent judgment and critical self-awareness.

The program requires that you complete 14 weeks/420 hours of paid work in the summer between your sixth and seventh semesters. This gives you the hands-on, real-world experience that employers value. Your work placement will give you the opportunity to explore the field you’d like to work in when you graduate.
