|The joint degrees of bachelor of commerce (co-operative) (B.Comm. (Co-op)) and bachelor of arts (BA) can be completed in five years, although careful planning is required. Some of the normal degree requirements have been relaxed in order to complete both programs in a minimum of 150 credit hours and graduate with both degrees at the same convocation.
This program is designed to provide students with valuable work experience to complement knowledge learned in the classroom. The co-operative component alternates academic study terms with periods of full-time employment, equating to one full year of work experience.
These work terms may be in industry, government or other organizations and give students an opportunity to apply classroom learning while developing professional networks and gaining valuable, practical experience for today’s business environment. With a 100% placement rate for co-operative business work terms, graduates of the program gain a diverse set of skills and abilities that make them sought after employees.
