If you like working with data, then a major in Business Analytics is for you. You will learn how to determine what the information needs of a company are and how to design information systems that get real business done. You will study various kinds of software and learn how to collect, organize, analyze, and evaluate data.

The job market for Business Analytic professionals is growing with an ongoing shortage across Manitoba and Canada. Our alumni are workings at companies like Great West Life, IBM, Investors Group, Wawanesa, and Standard Aero. Organizations will always have a need for in-house personnel or consultants with the data skill set taught at the Asper School of Business.


Choosing a major

In the Asper Bachelor of Commerce (Honours) program, students typically choose a major at the beginning of their third year. Each student must declare at least one major and present a minimum Degree Grade Point Average of 2.00.

It is important to make sure you are following the correct program requirements for your chosen major. The best way to do this is to email an Asper program advisor or call the Asper Help Line at  204-474-6388.

  • MIS 3020 Programming for Business Analytics
  • MIS 3500 Database Management Systems
  • ACC 3010 Data Analytics in Accounting

Co-op opportunities

Before you graduate, you have a chance to explore different career paths, professions, industries, companies, majors and build a professional network to kick-start your career.

International exchange opportunities

Stand out to future employers with international study experience. Living abroad expands your horizons and demonstrates that you’re willing to take risks and solve problems under challenging circumstances.

Admission requirements

To declare the Business Analytics major, you first have to be accepted to the Bachelor of Commerce program. The following are minimum requirements for entry into the Bachelor of Commerce program. 

Direct entry applicants are those who have not attended a post-secondary institution or have completed fewer than 24 credit hours at a recognized university or college.

Advanced entry applicants are those who have completed one year (24 credit hours) or more of studies in another faculty at the University of Manitoba or another recognized post-secondary institution.

Asper also gives individual consideration to students who meet some requirements for admission but may not have academically competitive marks because of reasons beyond their control.

Meeting these requirements does not guarantee acceptance into the program. Admission into the Bachelor of Commerce program is academically competitive and within the discretion of the Asper School of Business.
