GENERAL UNDERGRADUATE REGULATIONS

Bachelor of Commerce (Honours Business Administration) Co-operative Education Program
The Business Administration Co-op Program will help students acquire valuable professional experience in the workplace while they are pursuing their academic careers.

Students are admitted into the Bachelor of Commerce Co-op Program either directly out of their Grade 12 (or equivalent) Year, or in the Fall term of their second year of study in the Odette School of Business Administration. The Co-operative option is not available for the Honours Business and Economics or the Commerce for University Graduates program. Admission to the Program is competitive. Students applying from secondary school will be admitted based on academic achievement (typically, a minimum of 75% is required). Second-year students will complete a co-op application form and may be invited to an interview.

Students admitted to the Program must maintain a major average of 70% or better and a cumulative average of 65% or better, and must successfully complete three paid work terms to remain in the Co-op Program. To remain in the Co-op program only one outstanding failing grade (grade below 50%) is permitted.

Withdrawal from the co-op program will be granted on an exception basis only as it must be determined that the student has no outstanding commitments to employers. Students who wish to withdraw must meet with a Co-op Coordinator and complete a withdrawal form. However, the only time a student may withdraw from an undergraduate co-op program without further co-op fee payment implications is by the 1st Friday of classes after their first co-op work term. Students who withdraw from Co-operative Education at any other time will be liable for paying the co-op fee for the term in which they are dropping and one additional term. This will help offset the costs of developing another student for placement.

In the interest of building solid partnerships with employers, students who have accepted a co-op employment offer (either by ranking a position in round 1 of the job competition or by accepting a position either verbally or in writing in later rounds) must honour that commitment. Therefore, once students have accepted an offer of employment for a work term, they will be considered registered in the appropriate work term course and must remain in the co-op program until they have completed their work term requirements. Failure to honour these commitments and/or to complete all work term requirements will lead to being required to withdraw from the co-op program and will result in a failing grade on his/her transcript for that work term.

All Co-op positions must be full-time, paid, related to the degree program and approved by the University. The process of securing a co-op position is competitive. Co-op students will apply for work opportunities as advertised by the Centre for Career Education using an Internet-based software program and employers will make interview and hiring decisions. Students are also encouraged to seek co-op employment outside of the advertised postings by completing a guided job search process facilitated by the Centre for Career Education.

Concentrations in Business

Eligible business students may elect to concentrate in one of six areas of business. To be accepted into a concentration, a student must have achieved a certain grade in that concentration’s gate-in course(s). To successfully obtain the concentration, a student must successfully complete all the requirements for the Bachelor of Commerce degree and must achieve a certain average grade for courses in the concentration and a certain grade in the concentration’s cap-stone course. Although concentrations will not be formally recognized on transcripts or degrees, the Odette School of Business will provide students with documentation indicating that they have successfully obtained their particular concentration. Students who have selected a concentration will normally be given course registration priority in their area.

Note: Students registered in the Bachelor of Commerce for University Graduates program will be able to complete a concentration only by taking additional courses beyond those required for their degree. Depending upon the concentration, students registered in the Honours Business Administration and Computer Science (co-op and non co-op) or the Honours Business Administration and Economics programs may not be able to complete a concentration without taking additional courses beyond those required for their degree.


Students who wish to concentrate in Accounting, must fulfill the following requirements:
