Students who would like to switch to the trilingual B.B.A. are advised to sign up for a business Spanish course in the first term of their preparatory year if their course load allows, particularly if they do not already have an advanced level of Spanish proficiency. This would allow them to acquire, during their preparatory year, the Spanish skills required for admission to the trilingual B.B.A.
These are listed in the 2014-2015 academic calendar.
In order to follow their course of study successfully, students with a major functional or learning disability are invited to contact Student Services as soon as possible before the start of the term. This may be done by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org), in person (room 5.202 in the Decelles building) or by phone (514-340-6165).
