To declare the Strategy and Global Management 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.
