Bachelor of Business

Course Description

Sheridan College’s Bachelor of Business is a 3-year undergraduate program in business. In the first year, the program covers foundational areas of knowledge – including management, marketing, accounting, and microeconomics – serving as a pathway for further learning. In subsequent years, students can pursue individual concentrations in a range of business disciplines, including small business, human resources, global business and management, and the not-for-profit (NFP) sector.

All Sheridan College units are grounded in the Christian ethical framework and examine Christian perspectives on business which uphold the dignity of human beings and our social responsibilities to one another. The NFP sector, in particular, has much to contribute to the study of business administration, including the importance of a social vision for economic activity, and working to multiple bottom lines. Sheridan College’s specialist not-for-profit graduates will be well-equipped to serve in the large and growing global not-for-profit sector.
