Let’s get down to business!

The Williams School of Business at Bishop’s University is dedicated to providing a high-quality undergraduate business education within the liberal education tradition of the University. Students may work towards one of two undergraduate degrees (120 credits): a Bachelor of Business Administration (B.B.A.) or a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) with a Major Business. The B.A. Major Business is ideal for those who wish to design their own path, where they can combine a strong quantitative and qualitative understanding of business with a major or minors in different subject if they so desire. The B.B.A. offers the most in-depth approach to business studies. B.B.A. students can also choose among seven concentrations and among six minors to develop complementary knowledge and competencies.

B.B.A. Concentrations:

  • Accounting
  • Business Technology and Analytics (intended availability Fall 2022)
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Finance
  • Human Resources (intended availability Fall 2022)
  • Management

Joint programs with other programs at Bishop’s University include Majors in Arts Administration, Information Technology, as well as a Major and Minor in Sports Studies. Learn more about our Joint programs.

Minor programs are available to both Business and Non-Business students. Learn more about our Minors.

A Certificate in Business Administration is available, and may be completed on a full-time or a part-time basis. This program is of interest to students who don’t wish to do the whole B.B.A. or who want to test their capabilities and interests before applying to the B.B.A. If students wish to make an application to transfer to the B.B.A., they must fulfill the same admission requirements as for the B.B.A. Learn more about our Certificate in Business Administration.

The Williams School of Business offers a Co-operative Education Program. It combines a student’s academic program with integrated work experiences through full-time work terms and regular academic sessions. The work terms are designed to present the students with the opportunity to blend theory and practice and to gain relevant work experience.

We pride ourselves on having an experiential learning focus within the Williams School of Business whereby each course aims at providing real-life assignments that enable students to build practical competencies and enrich their curriculum vitae.

The Williams School of Business also encourages students to develop an international awareness of different business practices and cultures. Students have the opportunity to participate in an exchange program that allows them to study abroad for up to one year at any partner university in over 50 countries worldwide. An international component is also reflected in most of our courses, in our international student exchange program, workshops, conferences, case competitions and faculty involvement in international research projects.

The Williams School of Business is accredited with the Network of International Business Schools (NIBS).
