Business Administration minor
(for BCIS students only)

The BCIS degree (Business Administration minor) is designed for students who wish to prepare for information technology careers requiring a business background. This degree will prepare graduates for careers in information technology management, and for business-related computing work. For information on the Business minor for students in other degree programs, see this section.

Entrance requirements

Entrance, academic performance and all other requirements are the same as for the regular Bachelor of Computer Information Systems degree program.

Entry to the BCIS degree (Business Administration minor) will be granted when students have completed the lower-level (diploma) requirements shown below and have been accepted into the Business Administration minor program.

Students should apply to Business Administration in their second year of the CIS diploma program for entry to the Business Administration minor program.

Entry to the BCIS degree (Business Administration minor) will be limited by available space. Students should advise the CIS department head of their intentions while in their first year of study. Students may apply to the CIS department for entry in the last semester of their lower-level requirements.

Students may change from the BCIS degree (Business Administration minor) to the regular CIS degree at any time, providing they meet the current CIS degree continuance requirements.

Program requirements

A minor in Business Administration requires 30 credits including ECON 100 or 101, four-lower level business courses and five upper-level business courses.

Lower-level requirements

Lower-level requirements are the same as for the CIS diploma with the exception that for the Arts or other approved elective in the CIS diploma, students should choose a Business Administration course in order to meet the overall requirement of four lower-level Business Administration courses.

Students are advised that upper-level Business Administration courses have prerequisites. Students should plan their lower-level course work carefully with the Business Administration department to ensure that they have these prerequisites in place.

Upper-level requirements

Although some first- and second-year Business Administration courses are listed in upper-level requirements, they should be taken as early as possible, as they may be prerequisites for upper-level business courses.
