The three-year Business Administration program prepares graduates for a world of business and educational opportunities combining theoretical knowledge with practical application. For those looking to work for an existing corporation, to start their own business, or continue their education with one of Lambton's university pathways, this is the right program for you!

This program has been developed specifically for students to personalize their program of study to suit their abilities and interests and put them on the best possible path for employment. During the first year, students will participate in an active learning environment and be exposed to a curriculum that builds a solid knowledge base of the major areas of business. This lays a foundation for the areas of concentration and for the development of teamwork, leadership, and research skills.

Experiential Learning Opportunities

Because practical work experiences are vital, students are given the option to participate in a co-op work experience in term 5. This provides exposure to a business environment and could provide valuable work experience. In the final year of the program, students will take the entrepreneurship capstone courses which combine assessments and curriculum to challenge the students to utilize all of their knowledge, skills and abilities gained over the course of their program, in a series of culminating reports and presentations that showcase a capstone project. Real world corporate partners are engaged to provide students with even greater experiential learning opportunities.

Areas of Concentration

After a foundational year of essential business courses, students may choose one or two areas of concentration in Marketing or Entrepreneurship or Human Resources. There are 12 business option courses and by selecting four courses from one category, an area of concentration will be achieved.
