The DeGroote School of Business will give you the knowledge and skills to apply to just about any career that interests you. During your third and fourth years, you’ll have the opportunity to customize your career path by enrolling in specialized courses that concentrate on specific business disciplines. These specializations, known as ‘areas of focus,’ allow you to tailor your learning experience within the program. Moreover, we extend these minor options to students from other faculties, enabling them to explore and benefit from DeGroote.
Minors are a designation on your diploma that recognizes courses completed in another area of study. Minors can complement your degree, deepen your interdisciplinary knowledge, and set you apart to employers from other Business graduates.
There are also several professional designations that you can work towards during your undergraduate degree. This means taking coursework to qualify for designation in CFA, CPA, CHRP, and CFP.Learn More
