The Commerce programs combine economics and the various subdisciplines of management, teaching students analytical skills and about institutions. This background is useful for solving problems and making decisions in business and government environments. Graduates frequently become professional accountants, economists, actuaries, financial analysts, marketing analysts, managers of firms and government, or proprietors of small business.
Each program has also been designed to ensure you graduate with strong analytical, critical thinking and communication skills that will ensure your success in a competitive job market. In addition, the Specialist Program in Accounting is CPA recognized and provides students with direct entry into the CPA Professional Education Program (PEP). The BCom program has also been approved to participate in the CFA Institute’s University Affiliation Program. Some commerce students choose to pursue post-graduate studies in Law or Master of Business Administration (MBA) Programs.
"The Commerce program at UTM is competitive and challenging, but it offers unparalleled training and networking opportunities. I chose Commerce, specifically Accounting, because it’s so versatile. [...] Being business savvy, coupled with my strengthened interpersonal skills gives me the opportunity to work in many industries with various individuals."
- Sarah Girgis, 3rd year, Specialist in Accounting and Major in Economics
