Students will be visiting various top ranking universities in Seoul, the two-millenia-old South Korean capital, and Bangkok, capital of Thailand, the only Southeast Asian nation that was never colonized by the Europeans.

Students who participate will receive 9 university-transfer credits. Scholarships are available to all qualified applicants.

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.

Important Notes:
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.
