Program Description

The Bachelor of Commerce in Entrepreneurial Management (BCom) is a fully integrated undergraduate degree completion program. It comprises years three and four of an undergraduate degree and is delivered as a 12-month accelerated on-campus or a 24-month blended study program. Students work through a defined program of study that fosters the kinds of critical thinking, problem solving, communication, and collaboration skills that the work world and society demands.

This program is focused on enabling students to become successful value creators and difference makers, be it in a start-up, aspiring venture, or established organization. Underlying this focus is a commitment to advancing responsible, innovative, and sustainable business practices. For example, read about one of our alumna's entrepreneurial journey right here.

Is Entrepreneurial Management Right For You?

The BCom is ideally suited to committed, motivated learners: individuals who are tired of the status quo and want to enhance their career prospects and professional impact, be it as a prototypical entrepreneur, an internal innovator/change-agent (intrapreneur), an organizational leader, or a yet to be discovered role. Regardless of the ultimate path pursued, BCom learners are united by a desire to improve themselves and the world around them.

You are curious, open-minded, and adaptable. You've got a craving to launch your own venture, help lead your current organization to greater success, or work with others to advance causes and pursuits that matter. We've got the mentors, practical tools, and real-world experience to fuel your entrepreneurial aspirations and ambitions.

You have a minimum of two years of full-time work experience and have completed a diploma or at least two years (60 credits) of undergraduate studies. If you do not have the formal academic education to qualify for standard admission you may be assessed on the basis of your work experience and combination of your formal education and informal learning, in accordance with the Flexible Admission Policy.

If you're hungry to learn, grow, and make a difference, we want to hear from you.

What Makes Us Different?

We place a strong emphasis on both academic rigour and practical relevance. This means not only thinking and planning in the abstract, but actually doing and implementing in real-world scenarios. We've been engaged in applied and experiential education from the beginning, long before "getting out of the classroom" became the "in thing". 

Our curriculum strikes a balance between individual and team-based learning. You will be a member of a diverse cohort-based learning community, wherein you will collectively progress through a fixed menu of courses at a set pace. While you will be engaged with many team-based projects you will also have the opportunity to apply the course learnings to your individual passions and pursuits

Our graduates have the kinds of critical thinking, problem solving, communication, and collaboration skills that today's business environment and employers demand. RRU BCom grads have gone on to launch an array of business and social ventures, drive change and innovation in companies large and small, and manage people, projects, and programs across a diversity of sectors and organizations. We pride ourselves in being deliberately different and offering educational outcomes that are highly prized in the marketplace.
