UManitoba launches updated BComm curriculum


The University of Manitoba’s Asper School of Business will launch an updated Bachelor of Commerce (BComm) curriculum this fall. The curriculum aims to provide students with a modernized, well-rounded degree, steeped in increased flexibility for students to explore their specialized interests. New core courses include Indigenous Peoples and Canadian Business, Sustainable Business, and an Introduction to Business Analytics. UManitoba Instructor Katherine Davis said that learning about Indigenous business is vital to further reconciliation. “Business schools have a responsibility to prepare students with the knowledge, understanding and skills to lead and advance reconciliation and improve relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples,” said Davis.
