BBA Program Maintenance of Standing

BBA Program students (who have completed 60 or more credits) must maintain a minimum CGPA of 2.33 to continue in the third and the fourth years of the BBA. Students unable to attain this minimum will be removed from the BBA program and switched to an Arts and Science open enrollment program. Once a student is able to raise their CGPA to the minimum 2.33, they can at that point email business@langara.ca to request reinstatement for the following semester.

A student who is reinstated into the BBA program after removal for below maintenance of standing requirements or suspension, must meet the program/curriculum requirements in effect the term they resume their studies.

Students must achieve a minimum CGPA of 2.33 and a minimum 'C' grade in all core business-related third- and fourth-year courses (BCAP, BUSM, FMGT, INTB, or MARK courses numbered 3xxx or 4xxx) in order to graduate.

BUSM 4300 – Applied Business Project

No longer offered in the Summer Semester

After offering BUSM 4300 for multiple semesters, trying different configurations, we have concluded that a summer section of this course is not conducive to student success.

Summer 2018: Enrolment will be extremely limited and will require department approval.

Summer 2019 and onward: BUSM 4300 will no longer be offered in the Summer semester.

Field Studies

The Langara School of Management is associated with four field school opportunities. Each field school creates its own special niche and provides a wealth of knowledge, wisdom, excitment, and fun. All of this while earning university credits.

Repeat Limits

All BCAP, BUSM, FMGT, INTB and MARK courses have a repeat limit of two. If you have registered* in any of these courses two or more times, you need permission to register again:

  • For all 1XXX and 2XXX courses, request a registration override from the School of Management. You can do this by emailing business@langara.ca. Provide your first and last name, your Langara ID number, and the course that you wish to repeat. Provide the course name and number (ex. MARK 1115), not the CRN.
  • For all 3XXX and 4XXX, fill out this form and send to business@langara.ca. Each request will be evaluated on an individual basis.

*If you registered and then dropped the course (i.e. it does not appear on your transcript) it does not count. However, if you registered and then withdrew from the course (i.e. it appears on your transcript with a 'W'), then it does count towards the limit.
