CERTIFICATE PROGRAMS

Aboriginal Business Administration Certificate (ABAC)

ABAC Program

The Aboriginal Business Administration Certificate (ABAC) is designed to provide pathway programming for those Aboriginal students who do not meet the admission criteria for direct admission or transfer admission to the undergraduate program and for those Aboriginal students who wish to obtain a certificate in business but do not want to study in a four year degree program. 

Features of the program include:

  • The program allows Aboriginal students to study business education at the Edwards School of Business while concurrently mastering gaps in their high school preparation.
  • The program incorporates significant student success activities designed to assist students with their transition to studying business in a Canadian University setting. Students who successfully complete all the requirements of the ABAC program will earn an Aboriginal Business Administration Certificate of Proficiency from the Edwards School of Business.  
  • Upon successful completion, students may choose to apply to the Bachelor of Commerce degree program.  Students in good standing who have met ABAC program standards will be automatically admitted to the Bachelor of Commerce degree program.  
  • The ABAC Program may be used as a bridging program for those Aboriginal students who already possess an undergraduate degree, but are not fully academically qualified for graduate admission but who wish to pursue an MBA at the Edwards School of Business.
