Reference Number
Laurentian University, Collège Boréal and La Cité collaborated on a transfer agreement to accelerate the process of obtaining a Bachelor of Business Administration for graduates of Ontario’s two francophone colleges. As of September 2016, graduates of the two-year Business Administration programs (Techniques en administrations des affaires) at Collège Boréal and La Cité will benefit from a practical 2+2 model allowing them to earn a Bachelor of Business Administration (Baccalauréat en administration des affaires) from Laurentian University. According to the agreement, college graduates will need to complete the equivalent of two years of university studies as well as a statistics course to earn the degree. This transfer credit recognition in business is without precedent in the Francophone community and among the most beneficial in Ontario. Students of Collège Boréal and La Cité who wish to pursue their studies through Laurentian University’s Faculty of Management will also have the option to take their courses in French on campus or at a distance through a blended model. This added flexibility may allow them to enter the job market while completing their studies and pursuing their professional activities. Furthermore, by combining a college diploma and a bachelor’s degree, these students will have a competitive advantage in the job market as well as access to several professional designations requiring a four-year degree.
