Accounting Specialist (BCom) - ASSPE2676

Accounting Specialist (BCom) - ASSPE2676

Rotman Commerce at the University of Toronto offers an innovative curriculum combining studies in management, economics, and the liberal arts for an enriched professional undergraduate experience. The program explores the role of commerce in modern society while developing skill and confidence in analysis, effective communication, and decision making. The Rotman Commerce program offers a Bachelor of Commerce (BCom) degree in three different specialist programs, Finance & Economics, Accounting, and Management.

All programs within the Bachelor of Commerce degree build on a common foundation of business and liberal arts courses. Rotman Commerce students specialize in one of three programs: Accounting, Finance and Economics, or Management. Each program combines courses in management and applied economics with a variety of advanced courses in the liberal arts and sciences. The balance assures graduates of a solid understanding of business and modern society along with a command of critical skills in decision-making and organizational leadership.

Rotman Commerce graduates frequently become economists, accountants, actuaries, financial analysts, marketing analysts, managers of firms and government, or proprietors of small businesses. Some Rotman Commerce students elect to undertake post-graduate studies in the form of further university education: law schools and MBA programs have been particularly favoured destinations of recent graduates.

Asian Canadian Studies Minor (Arts Program) - ASMIN2728

Asian Canadian Studies Minor (Arts Program) - ASMIN2728

The Minor in Asian Canadian Studies focuses on community-engaged learning that explores how to understand the historical, social, cultural, economic, and political forces that affect people of Asian heritage in Canada. Our interdisciplinary courses connect students with local communities, and every course provides opportunities for students to pursue a choice of research interests. Together we critically investigate and add to knowledge about Asian Canadians.

The category "Asian Canadian" is widely understood to refer to people in Canada of East Asian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and West Asian ancestry.

Students take two required 0.5 credit core courses in Asian Canadian Studies; select from an array of courses in Asian Canadian Studies; and take additional courses related to the larger contexts of Asian Canadian Studies. The Minor in Asian Canadian Studies is easily combined with other disciplines, such as Anthropology, Art, Economics, English, Geography, History, Political Science and Sociology, as well as with interdisciplinary studies such as Contemporary Asian Studies, Diaspora and Transnational Studies, Equity Studies, East Asian Studies, South Asian Studies, and Near Eastern Studies.

Students will be encouraged to take full advantage of the opportunities available through the Canadian Studies Program, including its journal, ImagiNATIONs, produced by and for undergraduate students and its annual undergraduate student conference. The Canadian Studies Student Union is a focal point for social as well as academic pursuits, and is open to students pursuing a Minor in Asian Canadian Studies. Students also can participate in Asian Canadian Studies student events and in the tri-campus Asian Canadian Studies Research network. The Research network brings together professors and students to discuss current research related to Asian Canadian Studies, Asian diasporas, and global Asian migrations. Students in the minor are also invited to participate in the Asian Institute’s Asian Pathways Research Lab that offers research opportunities in Toronto.

Finance and Economics Specialist (BCom) - ASSPE2038

Finance and Economics Specialist (BCom) - ASSPE2038

Rotman Commerce at the University of Toronto offers an innovative curriculum combining studies in management, economics, and the liberal arts for an enriched professional undergraduate experience. The program explores the role of commerce in modern society while developing skill and confidence in analysis, effective communication, and decision making. The Rotman Commerce program offers a Bachelor of Commerce (BCom) degree in three different specialist programs, Finance & Economics, Accounting, and Management.

All programs within the Bachelor of Commerce degree build on a common foundation of business and liberal arts courses. Rotman Commerce students specialize in one of three programs: Accounting, Finance and Economics, or Management. Each program combines courses in management and applied economics with a variety of advanced courses in the liberal arts and sciences. The balance assures graduates of a solid understanding of business and modern society along with a command of critical skills in decision-making and organizational leadership.

Rotman Commerce graduates frequently become economists, accountants, actuaries, financial analysts, marketing analysts, managers of firms and government, or proprietors of small businesses. Some Rotman Commerce students elect to undertake post-graduate studies in the form of further university education: law schools and MBA programs have been particularly favoured destinations of recent graduates.


Enrolment Requirements:

For students admitted to the Rotman Commerce admission category in Year 1:

Special Requirement

  • Students are admitted to Year 1 of the Faculty of Arts and Science in the Rotman Commerce admission category with an “admission guarantee.” Students admitted with the guarantee are invited to enroll in the program after first year, provided that the course and grade requirements below (i.e., Guaranteed Admission requirements) are met.
  • Failure to meet any of these requirements, or failure to complete all the required courses within the calendar year (assuming full-time studies), will result in losing the admission guarantee.

Completed courses (with minimum grades)
The following courses with the stated minimum grades are required:

Notes:

  • Students may repeat any of the required courses once, in order to attain the requisite mark. The repeated course(s) must be completed within the calendar year (as per the terms of the "guarantee"); as such, the repeated course(s) must be taken during either the Winter or Summer Session of first-year (i.e. a student may not extend the terms of their guarantee in order to attain the minimum marks).
  • Note that none of the required courses may be completed using the CR/NCR option.

Drawing on the strengths of faculty members in History, Economics, and Political Science, the International Relations Specialist Program offers a structured and interdisciplinary education. The program provides students with knowledge of the historical and contemporary dimensions of the international system while introducing them to the methodologies employed in historical, political and economic analysis.

Latin American Studies Major (Arts Program) - ASMAJ0552

Latin American Studies Major (Arts Program) - ASMAJ0552

The Latin American Studies program at the Department of Spanish and Portuguese provides students in the social sciences and humanities an opportunity to engage and deepen their understanding of Latin American regions, their histories, politics, cultures, economies and societies. Courses encourage students to situate both their special interests and the contemporary debates in fields such as anthropology, political science, geography, literature, or history within a broader interdisciplinary framework, while at the same time committing themselves to an understanding of the historical, cultural and political experiences of Spanish and Portuguese America. Through an engagement with different texts and faculty expertise, this program trains students in current themes such as postcolonial thinking, critical readings of colonial histories, literary and anthropological genres, comparative politics, politics of indigeneity and human rights, as well as in environmental policies and political economy of Latin America and the Americas as a transnational whole. With the possibility to carry out curricula experience in Latin America, this program also offers an important lead for career development experiences on Latin America. This knowledge is increasingly necessary for Canada, as the country enters into new trade, political, environmental, and academic agreements with our emerging hemispheric partners.

Enrolment Requirements:

This is an open enrolment program. A student who has completed 4.0 credits may enrol in the program.

Management Specialist (BCom) - ASSPE2431

Management Specialist (BCom) - ASSPE2431

Rotman Commerce at the University of Toronto offers an innovative curriculum combining studies in management, economics, and the liberal arts for an enriched professional undergraduate experience. The program explores the role of commerce in modern society while developing skill and confidence in analysis, effective communication, and decision making. The Rotman Commerce program offers a Bachelor of Commerce (BCom) degree in three different specialist programs, Finance & Economics, Accounting, and Management.

All programs within the Bachelor of Commerce degree build on a common foundation of business and liberal arts courses. Rotman Commerce students specialize in one of three programs: Accounting, Finance and Economics, or Management. Each program combines courses in management and applied economics with a variety of advanced courses in the liberal arts and sciences. The balance assures graduates of a solid understanding of business and modern society along with a command of critical skills in decision-making and organizational leadership.

Rotman Commerce graduates frequently become economists, accountants, actuaries, financial analysts, marketing analysts, managers of firms and government, or proprietors of small businesses. Some Rotman Commerce students elect to undertake post-graduate studies in the form of further university education: law schools and MBA programs have been particularly favoured destinations of recent graduates.

*The combination of ( STA220H1, STA255H1) is considered equivalent to ECO220Y1 for the purposes of completing Rotman Commerce program requirements only. It is not considered equivalent by the department of Economics. Therefore ( STA220H1, STA255H1) will not count towards an ECO major nor will it count as a pre-requisite for 300 + level ECO courses where ECO220Y1 is required.

Notes:

  • Students may enrol in only one Rotman Commerce Specialist.
  • Students must take a minimum of 8.0 credits in RSM and 8.0 credits in non-RSM courses. MGT100H1 is considered equivalent to RSM100H1 and counts as 0.5 credit in RSM courses towards this requirement.
  • The CR/NCR option cannot be used for any program completion requirements, including focus requirements and the 8.0 RSM credit requirement. Students may request to use the CR/NCR option for any RSM courses they take beyond their program requirements. Requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis and require the approval of the Director, Rotman Commerce. Students may contact the Rotman Commerce Program office to make a request.

Peace, Conflict and Justice Major (Arts Program) - ASMAJ1228

Peace, Conflict and Justice Major (Arts Program) - ASMAJ1228

Enrolment Requirements:

While we welcome students with diverse experiences, this is a limited enrollment program that can accommodate a limited number of students. Admission is determined by a range of criteria, including at the initial stage a student's academic background, a short essay, a writing sample, a resume, and as a later stage of the process, a personal interview on invitation of the Program Director. In the past, enrollment in Peace, Conflict and Justice has proven to be extremely competitive across all of these dimensions, and an applicant's success in any one of these dimensions does not necessarily guarantee admission to the program in any given year. While it is not a prerequisite for program admission, students in their first year who are interested in the program in Peace, Conflict and Justice are advised to take three introductory courses in History, Economics, Psychology, Sociology and/or Political Science (courses listed in Cluster 1 for the major and specialist).
