FSA ULaval - Our world is business. Our business is the world.
The Faculty of Business Administration (FSA ULaval) at Université Laval, one of Canada's leading universities and the oldest French-speaking university in North America, is located in Québec City, a UNESCO World Heritage site. This historic city features a blend of First Nations, French and British influences. In both summer and winter, the city abounds with activities and places to discover.
With its two international accreditations (EQUIS and AACSB), the Faculty offers a complete range of management programs at the undergraduate, master’s and doctoral levels, based in particular on the techno-pedagogy expertise it has developed over the years. The Faculty welcomes some 6,800 students in its degree programs, of whom more than 950 are international students who can count on the support of an experienced team of some 135 teachers and researchers.
FSA ULaval has five departments and one school: the Department of Finance, Insurance and Real Estate; Department of Management; Department of Marketing; Department of Operations and Decision Systems; Department of Management Information Systems; and the School of Accounting.
Although Université Laval is a French-speaking university, FSA ULaval students can also study in English, and some courses are available in Spanish. Students can therefore develop second and third language skills as part of their program.
Our programs feature technology-enhanced learning content in the form of online or hybrid versions of our courses for added flexibility. In successfully completing FSA ULaval programs, students are qualified to become members of no fewer than 13 recognized professional corporations.
