UT: Bachelor of Commerce

Northwestern Polytechnic

Northwestern Polytechnic
A number of options are available for students seeking a degree in business. Northwestern Polytechnic can offer students up to two years (60 credits) of course work toward the Bachelor of Commerce degree at the University of Alberta or toward the Bachelor of Management degree at The University of Lethbridge. Students can complete up to one year of course work towards the University of Calgary's Bachelor of Commerce. It is highly suggested to speak with an advisor if students are planning to transfer to Calgary. Within these degree programs, students may follow a general program or choose to develop a major (area of concentration). The specific majors available are listed along with the appropriate curriculum for each individual institution. The Bachelor of Commerce and Bachelor of Management degrees at Alberta institutions are normally four years and 120 credits of appropriate course work. The Universities of Alberta, Calgary and Lethbridge have residency requirements that must be completed in order to graduate. Usually, the last (or senior) 60 credits of the degree taken at the university fulfills this requirement. Students must normally complete all degree requirements within eight years, beginning with the year admission to the program was granted.
