The Sprott School of Business is offering an alternative pathway to the Bachelor of Commerce degree for high achieving students.

Are you the next changemaker of tomorrow? Are you driven to inspire, to collaborate, and to make a positive impact on our society, both locally and around the world? Maybe a degree in business wasn’t on your radar of ways to make that happen.

If you can articulate your exceptional creativity, display evidence of strong leadership skills and the ability to communicate, we want you to join us at Carleton University’s Sprott School of Business in the Bachelor of Commerce program. Guided by our values of compassion, imagination and purpose, the Sprott School of Business provides transformational learning experiences that harness the potential of business to create prosperity, equity and justice for all.
