The Accounting minor is available to students in the university's Bachelor of Commerce programs.
The Bachelor of Commerce (Honours) degree with an Accounting minor requires a minimum of 18 credit hours in accounting courses. Students must complete four accounting core courses and a minimum of two accounting elective courses (as below).
Students can apply to have a business minor added to their program in the winter semester of their second year in the program. Admission is competitive and based on performance in the program as well as previous business courses. Students must have a minimum 2.3 GPA (C+ average on a 4.3 scale) to be considered as well as at least a C+ average in Marketing in the Information Technology Sector (for Marketing minor) or Introduction to Project Management (for the Operations Management or Game Production Management minors). Students will be notified by their academic advisor by the end of May in their second year if they are accepted into their desired minor program.
