What is involved in doing a Business degree at the University of Winnipeg?

All University of Winnipeg undergraduate degrees, including a Business degree, involve meeting general requirements (set at the university level) as well as specific requirements of a particular discipline (set by Departments and/or Faculties).  The specific requirements for a Business degree are set by the Department of Business and Administration.

We have a three-step process to help students declare and plan their degrees:

STEP 1: DOWNLOAD DEGREE DECLARATION FORMS, DEGREE PLANNING WORKSHEETS and COURSE MAP

Degree Declaration Form

If you have decided that studying Business is the right decision for you, it is a good idea to declare your intent to undertake a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree.  Depending on which degree interests you, you will need to download and complete one of the following forms:

Declaring your degree is important for several reasons:

  1. To give the university an indication as to which degree requirements should be used to determine your eligibility for graduation;
  2. To be a catalyst to require you to think through your degree program all the way to completion and to help you do so in time to make necessary plans;
  3. To be a catalyst to bring you into contact with a representative of the Business and Administration Department who can help you plan your degree;
  4. To give the Department and the University the better understanding of the number of the students in the program for resource planning purposes (i.e. hiring needs, number of course sections, different types of courses, etc.)
  5. Finally, by declaring your intent, the Student Planning module in WebAdvisor will more accurately reflect your progress in your degree and/or requirements.

Degree Planning Worksheets

There are two versions/options of the Degree Planning Worksheet.  Download the one that is relevant to the degree you are seeking:

"Course Maps"

In addition to the Planning Worksheets, and to assist students with planning their degrees, the Department has created a series of 'Course Maps' which detail, semester-by-semester, an example of how a degree could be completed. These 'Course Maps' are simply a planning tool for your benefit and are designed to be used in conjunction with your Degree Planning Worksheet: 

  • 4-year BBA with Accounting Concentration (with max CPA credit) - Course Map
  • 4-year BBA with Accounting Concentration - Course Map
  • 4-year BBA with Co-op Concentration - Course Map

  • 4-year BBA with Marketing Concentration - Course Map
  • 4-year BBA with International Business Concentration - Course Map
  • 4-year BBA General  - Course Map
  • 3-year BBA General - Course Map

STEP 2: MAKE AN APPOINTMENT TO SEE AN ACADEMIC ADVISOR

Our Academic Advisors at the University of Winnipeg are available year-round to help you understand degree requirements.  With your completed Degree Declaration form, you can make an appointment to see them at anytime. The Academic Advising Office is located in Rice Centre (1st floor of 489 Portage Ave).  Please call 204.779.UWIN (8946) to schedule an appointment.

STEP 3: SEE A BUSINESS FACULTY ADVISOR

The last step is to see a dedicated Faculty Advisor in the Department of Business and Economics who will review your forms/paperwork and provide you with any necessary signatures.  The most up-to-date list of available Advisors can be found on the door of 3BC18 (3rd floor, Buhler Centre).

Good luck with your degree!
