Admissions FAQ (Management BBA and Co-op Management BBA)

Can I apply to enter the Management BBA program after I am accepted at UTSC?

Yes, students can apply to UTSC limited-enrollment programs, including the BBA Specialist Program in Management, in March and July of each year.

Students who have completed more than 10.0 credits will not be considered for admission to the program.

Do I need to complete certain courses to be considered for the Management BBA program?

Students requesting admission after first year must complete required courses. For a complete list of courses, please refer to the UTSC Calendar.

What CGPA is required to be accepted into the BBA program?

Admission to the Management BBA program is competitive. The grades required are relatively high and vary from year to year.

The minimum Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA)  required is usually more than 3.0, depending upon the number of spaces available.

For Co-op Management, the minimum CGPA required is greater than that which is required for the Management BBA program.

When should I apply to the Management BBA program?

Students can apply to the Management BBA program twice per year, in March and July. Official dates and deadlines to apply are published on the UTSC Registrar’s website

When will I learn the results of my application?

Applicants will be informed about admissions decisions by early May and mid-September when all grades have been received.

Once I am accepted into the Management BBA program, what do I need to do?

Students should immediately meet with their Management Program Advisor to plan their next term and enroll in courses on ACORN.

Can I take courses before being enrolled in the Management BBA program?

Any UTSC student may take MGTA01H3 and MGTA02H3.  

Any UTSC student may take Economics (MGE) courses; however, these courses usually have enrollment controls, which can be found on the timetable.

I want to take MGTA01H3 in the Fall term, but I am on the waitlist. What can I do?

If a student intends to apply to the Management BBA program but is unable to join MGTA01H3 in the Fall, then they should take the course during the Winter term, followed by MGTA02H3 in the Summer term, and apply to the Management BBA program in the Summer term (provided all other necessary course requirements have been met).

For a complete list of required courses, please refer to the UTSC Calendar.

What programs are offered by the Department of Management?

The Management BBA program is composed of optional Specializations in Accounting, Economics for Management Studies, Finance, Human Resources, Information Technology, Marketing, and Strategic Management. You may also take a general BBA Specialist in Management program.

Each specialist program above is also offered with optional co-op.

The Management and International Business (MIB) BBA program is only offered as a co-op.

Additionally, the Double Degree program in Quantitative Finance and Statistics offers students the opportunity to earn a simultaneous BBA and BSc degree, with optional co-op.

For a complete list of Management programs, please refer to the UTSC Calendar.

Can I take courses that count towards a professional designation while I complete the Management BBA program?

All of our courses either meet or exceed the coursework requires to obtain a Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) or a Certified Human Resources Professional (CHRP) designation. Our courses are also particularly useful for students planning to obtain a Certified Financial Analyst (CFA) designation and the Chartered Certified Accountant (ACCA) designation.

Within the Management BBA program, can I select more than one specialization?

No, students may register in no more than one BBA specialization at any one time. Students enrolling in a Double Degree program are exempted.

I see that the Department offers a Specialist Program in Economics for Management Studies (BBA). How does it differ from the Major in Economics for Management Studies?

The Specialist Program in Economics for Management Studies leads to a BBA degree and requires the completion of a significant number of Economics courses. The BBA is valuable for students who find a keen interest in Economics and those interested in graduate study in Economics or employment as business economists. For full program details, please visit the UTSC Calendar.

The Major in Economics for Management Studies is a BA program with fewer courses. It must be combined with either another Major or two Minor programs in order to meet graduation requirements. For full program details, please visit the UTSC Calendar.

What courses do I need to be considered for admission to the Double Degree program from the Management BBA program?

To apply to the Double Degree (BBA/BSc) program, students must have completed at least 4.5 credits (none of which can be designated as CR/NCR), including: MGTA05H3, MGEA02H3, MGEA06H3, MGAB01H3, MGAB02H3, MGTA35H3 or MGTA36H3, MATA22H3, [MATA30H3 or MATA31H3], and [MATA36H3 or MATA37H3].

Students who have taken the sequence [MATA32H3 and MATA33H3] instead of [MATA30H3/MATA31H3 and MATA36H3/MATA37H3] can still apply to the Double Degree program if they are taking or plan to take MATA36H3/MATA37H3 at the time of application and could receive admission conditional on their grade in MATA36H3/MATA37H3 being above a threshold to be specified each year.
