EntrepreneurshipIdeal for the aspiring entrepreneur, the Bachelor of Commerce (BCom) Entrepreneurship concentration gives you the unique opportunity to start a business while earning your business degree.

You’ll gain an in-depth understanding of the entrepreneurial process, as well as develop the skills and expertise for careers in entrepreneurship and small business management.

Hands-on learning is a key feature of the program. You’ll experience all of the steps involved in creating an enterprise – from forming the idea to developing a business plan and launching the enterprise.

The two practicum courses integrate students in the BCom Entrepreneurship concentration with students in the Minor in Entrepreneurship, allowing you to collaborate with students from other academic programs.
