Commerce students at the Ron Joyce Centre for Business Studies

Commerce involves the study of a variety of business subject areas such as accounting, finance, marketing, and management.

Mount Allison's Commerce program provides an experiential and personal approach to business studies.

Program overview

Faculty: Faculty of Social Sciences
Degree options:  

The Mount Allison Commerce program is designed to give students – regardless of your areas of concentration – a strong undergraduate foundation in the key disciplines of business education:

  • accounting
  • finance
  • marketing
  • management

Built on a strong liberal arts foundation, the program also provides you with the knowledge and skills necessary to view the business world from different perspectives.

If you are pursuing a BComm, you must take a minor in a discipline outside the Commerce program. Viewing your Commerce studies from a different perspective not only helps you develop innovative ideas and solutions — it helps create unique career paths.
