Business Administration Certificate

The Business Administration Certificate (BAC) is an eight-course business management program that allows students to expand their understanding of the business environment, marketing, human resources, finance, and other concepts commonly encountered in the business world. Offered through convenient night classes, this part-time program allows the flexibility you require, while delivering the business tools you need to set yourself apart. 

Upon successful completion, students may transfer seven of eight of the BAC classes to the Bachelor of Commerce Degree program. Students must meet the transfer requirements in effect for the year in which they apply.

Admissions Requirements

Applicants are assessed on a case-by-case basis. A grade 12 standing (or equivalent) is required for admission. Applicants who do not meet these requirements may apply for conditional admission into the program on the basis of prior business experience.

For those who may want to eventually pursue an Edwards undergraduate degree, the majority of BAC courses are fully transferable to the Edwards B.Comm. degree program. In such cases, students are responsible to ensure that they meet undergraduate admission requirements, and must undergo the undergraduate degree program application on process.

International students

This program is only open to students currently residing in Canada.

Distance students

Select regional colleges in Saskatchewan are offering COMM 101.3 as of September 2016 which is equivalent to BAC 11.3 in the program. This is currently the only BAC course offered through distance education.
