Your Career

In recent years, there has been an increased awareness of the role of Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) as drivers of innovation within the Ontario and Canadian economy. Canada's SMEs employ more people and generate more economic activity than any other sector. SMEs are the prime drivers of economic growth in Canada, and that has never been more evident than today. In light of this, there is an increasing demand for qualified graduates who have a keen understanding of business through the eyes of SMEs.

As a graduate of the Honours Bachelor of Commerce - Business Management program you will be able to adapt to the changing responsibilities of the SME environment. You will be well prepared for careers such as product managers, project leaders or management, or you can start your own business.

In addition, you will have the required knowledge to pursue several key industry designations including the following:

  • Canadian Institute of Management's Certified in Management (CIM) and the Professional Manager (P.Mgr) professional designations
  • The Project Management Institute educational component for the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) certificate
  • Microsoft Office Specialist Certificate through Microsoft
  • Certified Sales Professional (CSP) from the Canadian Professional Sales Association
