Rotman Commerce at the University of Toronto offers a rigorous curriculum combining studies in management, economics, and the arts and sciences for an enriched professional undergraduate experience. The program explores the role of commerce in modern society while developing skill and confidence in analysis, effective communications and decision making.

The Bachelor of Commerce degree builds on a common foundation of a range of business disciplines and economics. Rotman Commerce students specialize in one of three areas: Accounting, Finance and Economics, or Management. Each stream combines courses in management and applied economics with a variety of courses in the arts and sciences. The balance assures graduates of a solid understanding of business and modern society along with a command of critical skills across business disciplines, decision-making, and leadership.

Rotman Commerce graduates enter a wide range of professions, and frequently become financial analysts, accountants, marketing analysts, economists, managers of firms and government, or entrepreneurs. Some commerce students elect to undertake post-graduate studies. Law schools and MBA programs have been particularly favoured destinations of recent graduates.

Faculty from the Rotman School of Management who teach in Rotman Commerce are listed above.

Registration Instructions for the Faculty of Arts & Science can be found in the Program Toolkit and Course Enrolment Instructions sections of the Arts & Science website.

Bachelor of Commerce (BCom) Degree Requirements

Requirements for the BCom are stated on the Degree Requirements page.

Rotman Commerce Notes

Enrolment in Rotman Commerce programs is limited. Most students are admitted to first year with Rotman Commerce Guaranteed Admission (see below for terms and conditions). Rotman Commerce students choose their Specialist program after first year, provided that the Guaranteed Admission requirements have been met. A limited number of spaces may also be available in second year for other Arts & Science students who were not admitted with the guarantee (see enrolment requirements with the program information below for details).

Part-Time Students 

Students holding Rotman Commerce Guaranteed Admission, who have applied for and been admitted to Part-Time study, will be assessed for entry into the Rotman Commerce program at the point when they have completed 4.0 credits including the Guaranteed Admission requirements. To qualify under the Part-Time provision, students must have been enrolled in a part-time course load from the beginning of each session. Students may repeat each of the required courses only once in order to attain the minimum marks.

Additional Notes

  • Tuition Fees: Students enrolling in Rotman Commerce programs pay fees that are higher than other Arts & Science programs.  
  • Mathematics Note: Any of MAT133Y1, MAT135H1 + MAT136H1, MAT137Y1, or MAT157Y1 satisfy the mathematics requirements. Students are strongly recommended to take MAT133Y1, because this course is designed to provide the mathematical knowledge and skills required for further studies in the Rotman Commerce program. In particular, topics in multivariable calculus and linear algebra are included in MAT133Y1. Students who choose instead to take MAT135H1 + MAT136H1, MAT137Y1, or MAT157Y1 will need to learn these topics on their own. Some students choose to take MAT135H1 + MAT136H1 instead if they are more interested in applications of calculus to life sciences or physics than in applications to commerce and economics. Some students who are interested in taking advanced courses in Mathematics, Statistics, or Computer Sciences choose to take MAT137Y1 instead, in order to build their proof-writing skills. Even if you have a  high school transfer credit for calculus, we still recommend taking MAT133Y1 to ensure that you have a solid mathematical foundation for the Rotman Commerce program.
  • Maximum Term Load: Rotman Commerce students are limited to a maximum of 6.0 credits in any Fall/Winter session of their program and a maximum of 2.0 credits in their Summer session.
  • Students who have completed the requirements of their Admission Guarantee by the end of the Winter Session are eligible to enroll in 200-level RSM courses during the Summer Session following their first year.
