1) Program Admission Requirements

The BBA is a degree program for students who are planning to complete, or have completed, specific BCIT diplomas, and who wish to further their education.

Successful candidates must meet the program's minimum entrance requirements, and should apply to the BCIT BBA program after completing or when nearing completion of one of the BCIT School of Business diploma programs below.

Entrance requirements

Full-time:

Preference will be given to applicants who exceed the minimum GPA requirement and are current full-time students in the BCIT Diploma.

This program has a two-step admission process. Applicants must meet all entrance requirements to be accepted. Applicants who are currently enrolled in the 4th term of their BCIT Diploma must be on track to complete their diploma by May. Currently enrolled full-time BCIT diploma students applying for the full-time degree may be conditionally accepted based on successful completion of their diploma.


Part-time
:

This program has a two-step admission process. Applicants must meet all entrance requirements and will be accepted on a first qualified basis as long as space remains.


Step 1 for all applicants: Meet the following entrance requirements

  • Minimum average of 70% across the following five courses: Business Communications 2, Finance (or Financial Management), Essentials of Marketing, Macroeconomics, and Statistics

*Note: Students from Sustainable Business Leadership, Digital Design and Development and Graphic Communications Technology are required to arrange for a pre-entry assessment by contacting the BBA department to determine if they are required to complete OPMT 1197 (70% min) and ECON 2200 (70% min) or equivalent to be eligible for the BBA.

Applicants that do not meet the entrance requirements are required to complete an online pre-entry assessment . The program area will review their work experience and academic history to identify necessary upgrading courses. These applicants may be considered for acceptance if they have graduated with:

  • a BCIT diploma not listed on this page
  • a listed BCIT diploma but have not met the minimum required GPA
  • external credentials and/or special circumstances (ex. military, first responder)


Step 2 for all applicants: Department assessment

Each application will be reviewed and assessed by the program area once it is complete.

Applicants that do not meet all entrance requirements will be notified of necessary upgrading courses and will be required to reapply to the program when they have completed the courses.
