Students apply for the combined degree program during the HBA 1st year, typically their third year of University. To be eligible for consideration for admission to the combined program, students must: complete a full first year (5.0 courses), including all the principal courses with the appropriate marks required for admission to an Honors Specialization offered by the Faculty of Science; in their second year, complete 4.0 courses of their Honors Science Specialization module with a minimum average mark of 70 % and no mark less than 60 %, and Business Administration 2257 with a minimum mark of 70 %. Because entrance to the program is competitive and limited, a student must achieve a minimum two-year (10.0 course) average of 80%. Demonstrated participation in extracurricular and/or community activities, leadership, and work experience are also admission criteria. Applications must be made in writing to the Associate Dean (Academic), Faculty of Science, and the HBA Program Office by the published deadlines for the Richard Ivey School of Business.
Upon completion of this combined program, students will receive both a BA in Honors Business Administration and Honors BSc (or Honors BA) degree.
Students applying to the Richard Ivey School of Business Advanced Entry Opportunity (AEO) are also eligible to be considered for the combined
program. Refer to the Faculty of Science for details on this combined degree program.
