• A Concentration consists of 5 courses in a particular discipline. There is a possibility to do multiple concentrations instead of doing a major, which provide breadth across several areas in management. 
  • In general, the student will begin taking courses from the chosen Concentration(s) in the U2 year.
  • The minimum to graduate with a BCom is either, two concentrations or a concentration and a minor. 
  • ​Students who choose to take a second Concentration will be required to complete 15 non-overlapping credits at a satisfactory level with a minimum grade of C in each course.

In order to complete a Concentration, the student must achieve a grade of C or better in all the courses that comprise the Concentration. The student who has failed to earn 15 satisfactory credits will be required to embark on a new Concentration, repeat the course(s) in question or, where possible, to replace the course(s) with a satisfactory substitution from the Complementary courses of the Concentration.
