Cambrian College to Launch New Honours Degree in Business Administration

Sep 14, 2022

SUDBURY – To meet the needs of employers and professionals, Cambrian College will be offering a new, four-year Honours Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) program, beginning in September of 2023.

With the launch of this program, Cambrian will be the first college in Northern Ontario to offer a Bachelor of Business Administration degree.

Students in Cambrian’s BBA can either choose a major in one of three areas of specialization (Accounting, Data Analytics, Digital Marketing) or opt for a General Business Administration degree. The Accounting stream is also recognized by Chartered Professional Accountants (CPA) Ontario, meaning it is a clear pathway into the accounting profession.

Cambrian’s BBA program also includes a mandatory internship (co-op) and a capstone applied learning project.

“At Cambrian we’re listening to what employers want and what students are seeking, and we feel that our Honours BBA responds to what we have heard,” says Dr. Parvinder Arora, Dean, School of Business at Cambrian College. “What they are telling us is they want degree-level theory along with the practical business skills training we already provide.”

An added benefit of Cambrian’s new Honours Bachelor of Business Administration program is it also provides a clear pathway to a business degree for students who have completed a business diploma program.

“Over the years, a number of our business diploma students have asked about pursuing a degree, and we have had to advise them to explore those options at another school,” adds Arora. “Now they do not need to leave Cambrian because our new Honours BBA will allow graduates of a two-year Business Diploma or a two-year Accounting Diploma to move seamlessly into year three of the BBA program.”

The new BBA is the second degree offered by Cambrian College, following this month’s successful launch of its Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree.

“Increasingly, employers locally and beyond are looking for people with high levels of theory and job-ready skills, which is why Cambrian is fully embracing the opportunity to provide learners with Bachelor degree programs,” says Bill Best, Cambrian’s President. “At Cambrian, our forté is providing students with in-class learning and in-the-field experiences with employers.

I think we have the best of both worlds here. It’s a program poised for immense success.”
