Honours BA Financial Mathematics and Honours Bachelor of Business Administration
This double degree program provides qualified students the opportunity to gain expertise in business models and management practices, and the theory and quantitative methods fundamental to the financial and related sectors. This BBA/BA program consists of a minimum of 26.0 credits and normally requires at least 10 academic terms, over 4 2/3 calendar years of study, to complete all requirements.
Students normally enter this program in a Fall term. Students who satisfy the progression requirements for entry to Year 2 are guaranteed entry into the Co-op Option, but this option is not mandatory. The progression requirements of each program (the Honours BBA and the Honours BA Financial Mathematics) must be satisfied in order to receive both degrees.
On successful completion of this program, students will be eligible to attend the convocation ceremonies in SBE and in Science and will receive the Honours BBA degree and the Honours BA Financial Mathematics degree at the respective convocations.
Students must meet the following conditions in each year of the program by August 31:
- Minimum GPA of 7.00 in BU courses, minimum GPA of 5.0 in MA courses and an overall GPA of 5.0 in all other courses.
- Year 2-5: Minimum GPA of 7.00 in BU courses, minimum GPA of 5.0 in MA courses and an overall GPA of 5.0 in non-BU, non-MA courses.
- Graduation: Students who do not meet the requirements in one of the Honours subjects, will progress into the subsequent year of the one Honours program for which they have met the requirements, then all the regulations for that single Honours program will apply. Students who have not met the graduation requirements due to low GPA must do so within one calendar year to graduate with the double degree.
- Based on the results of the Calculus Placement Evaluation, an entering student may be advised to enroll in MA110*, rather than MA103, in Year 1; then MA104 would be completed in Fall term of Year 2 and MA215 in Fall term of Year 3, in place of the 0.5 non-BU elective. Hence, students who have credit for MA110* require only 1.0 non-BU elective credits.
