Students who have decided not to pursue the Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree have the option of working towards a BA degree through either the Major or Minor Program in Economics. These are both Arts degrees. The Major Program consists of six full-course equivalents of Economics, one half-full course equivalent in Mathematics, and one in Humanities. The Minor Program consists of four full-course equivalents of Economics. Please refer to the Academic Calendar for more detailed information.
BBA vs. Major and Minor Programs in Economics for Management Studies
The University of Toronto Scarborough’s Academic Calendar states that students in the Bachelor of Business Administration Program (BBA) may not jointly enroll in either a Minor or Major Program in Economics for Management Studies. In all Specialist Programs leading to a BBA, students are required to take MGEA02H, MGEA06H, MGEB02H, MGEB06H, MGEB11H, MGEB12H, and one full-course equivalent at the C-level. Since the course requirements for the Minor Program are entirely contained within the BBA Program, it cannot be granted in addition to the BBA. Likewise, since the course requirements for the Major Program greatly overlap with those of the BBA, it too cannot be granted in addition to the BBA.
