Bachelor Programs

Looking for flexibility? Composed of the same core business courses as the bachelor of commerce (co-operative), this program can be completed at your own pace and has no work term component or work experience requirement. Students are able to complete courses either on-campus or through distance education as part-time or full-time students.

This five-year program is perfect for students looking for work experience to complement the knowledge taught in the classroom. Our bachelor of commerce (co-op) students have filled work term positions in all Canadian provinces and abroad in countries such as the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Sweden, Ireland, the United States and Germany.

One of only three such programs in Canada, this program allows students to balance their business skills with a global perspective. Students develop cross-cultural skills relevant to a specific global region and experience that culture during a semester abroad. This is an excellent opportunity for students interested in working in the global environment.

Master Programs

Memorial’s MBA program focuses on developing decision-makers competent in all areas of management. We offer an internationally-accredited program with a curriculum that delivers the business fundamentals and skills to help you succeed locally, nationally and globally.

Featuring small classes, experiential learning opportunities and a variety of teaching approaches, Memorial’s MBA offers experience beyond the classroom.

Memorial’s MER offers a joint degree program that features perspectives from both the faculties of business and arts. Our MER program will help you to effectively manage the relationships at your organization, providing advanced-level study of all aspects of the employment relationship as well as insight into the history and sociology of work cultures.

Memorial offers the only M.Sc. in management in Atlantic Canada. This research-focused program will help you develop rigorous research skills suitable to careers in academia or in the public, private or non-profit sectors. You’ll develop an important and versatile skillset that also prepares you to enter a PhD in management program at the Faculty of Business Administration or elsewhere.
