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.
To declare the generalist major, you first have to be accepted to the Bachelor of Commerce program. The following are minimum requirements for entry into the Asper 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 special 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 Asper Bachelor of Commerce program is academically competitive and within the discretion of the Asper School of Business.
