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 recognise that many students have questions about their degrees and/or courses.  For that reason, we have developed a comprehensive FAQ here on our site.

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

STEP 1: DOWNLOAD MAJOR DECLARATION FORM, DEGREE PLANNING WORKSHEETS and a COURSE MAP

Major 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 by downloading and completing a Major Declaration Form.  

Declaring your major/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 specific degree sought:

Note: The Student Planning Tool in WebAdvisor can also be used. 


"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: 

For students interested in becoming a CPA (Chartered Professional Accountant) the department has created a course map designed to get the maximum CPA prerequisite credit from your undergraduate degree prior to entering the CPA program. For more information on the CPA Program please visit our CPA Campus Recruitment Page


STEP 2: MAKE AN APPOINTMENT TO SEE AN FACULTY OF BUSINESS AND ECONOMICS ADVISOR

The next step is to make an appointment with one of our Faculty Advisors, who will review your completed Major Declaration Form with you.  Scroll back up to the top of this page to access a link to the current advising schedule.


STEP 3: TAKE YOUR MAJOR DECLARATION FORM TO STUDENT CENTRAL

The folks at Student Central will receive your form and make the necessary changes to your student record to reflect your newly-declared degree.  Welcome aboard!

Good luck with your degree!
