The Bachelor of Applied Management (with or without Majors, including Accounting, Business Information Systems, Operations and Production Management, Project Management, and Sales and Marketing) Level 7, comprises 360 credits.
A double major may be completed when a student completes the courses for another major as the 5 courses for their elective. In this instance, the Co-operative Education Project must cover both disciplines represented by the majors. The degree title will have both the majors included after it eg Bachelor of Applied Management (Accounting and Business Information Systems).
The Bachelor of Applied Management has accreditation and approval for the award of a non-major. In this instance a student has the ability to pull together a cohesive group of courses with a relevant outcome focus for them. This might be specific to a particular industry requirement or an area they wish to focus on. Prior internal approval is required for this.
The 75 elective credits of the Bachelor of Applied Management are a principal feature of its design. They allow students to complement the core courses specific to the degree, and compulsory courses in a major, with courses of their choice thus allowing time to further enhance their future career or personal goals.
The availability of a particular elective course is subject to an appropriate number of students enrolling in that course.
