PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Imagine yourself developing new consumer products, presenting recommendations to a panel of executives, traveling the globe as part of an international merger team, or crunching the data on the profitability of a new product line. A UFV School of Business BBA is your first step to become relevant to the global business milieu and prepares you to play a role in the international marketplace.

Maximize your chance for success in Canada by beginning your degree at UFV’s Chandigarh location. Before your first year, adjust to Canadian university expectations, strengthen your communications skills, and learn critical time management strategies through the Academic Foundation Program. You even prepare to ace math-based courses by attending pre-semester math training.

Put theory into practice and build the technical and leadership skills required to jumpstart your career through UFV’s applied course pedagogy. At the beginning of your degree, you complete foundational business, math, economics, marketing, and finance courses to establish a broad base of knowledge.

Develop new business ideas, build entrepreneurial skills and grow your understanding of organizational dynamics by joining the Student Company Program. You and a team of your peers issue shares, conduct market research, develop products, deliver industry standard reports, and initiate sales processes. By the end of the program, you are equipped with real-world skills and a valuable portfolio piece to add to your resume.

Then, choose to seamlessly transfer to UFV’s Abbotsford campus in British Columbia, Canada after your first, second, or third year. You transfer as a cohort, meaning you have a pre-built support network before you land.

If you transfer to Canada, you get to specialize in one of seven majors or minors. Each includes tailored courses to refine your skill set:

Majors:

Accounting
Finance
Human Resource Management
Marketing

Minors:

Financial Management
Operations Management/Management Information Systems
Organizational Studies

Alternatively, you may pursue a general business degree or complete your studies at the UFV in Chandigarh.

No matter your choice, the BBA provides a strong foundation in business and economics, supplemented by a selection of course offerings in English, social science, science, and the humanities.

Additional opportunities:

Apply for a three-year Canadian work permit after you graduate. Canada needs talented analytical thinkers who can spot trends, identify risks, and tackle complex challenges. As a UFV School of Business graduate, you are prepared to enter the dynamic world of business.

Study abroad in one of 20+ countries and earn UFV credits at a partner university — partners that include top global business schools. Students who take advantage of the Study Abroad program gain a global network of connections, build cultural knowledge, and are better equipped for the global marketplace.

Build credibility and on-the-job skills by opting for the Co-operative Education option once you reach Canada. Combine study semesters with four- eight, or twelve-month paid work terms, offered in regional, national, and global firms. Positions available in all major/minor specialization areas and in varied industries. These opportunities provide you with valuable experience and boost your career prospects.
