Advising and Student Support

General Advising Information About the BBA Program

While the first-year required courses are common to all BBA majors, variations in course requirements begin in the fall semester of second year (based on 15 credits/semester). The BBA Course Matrix details the recommended courses students must take, and when to take them in each academic year.

To keep our students, employees and extended community safe and healthy and follow public health guidelines, Vancouver Island University will be following a hybrid (online) model of educational delivery for the fall 2020 and spring 2021 semesters.

FOM Business Programs Advisor

Andrea Martin (she/her) is the Academic Advisor for the Bachelor of Business Administration, the BBA’s embedded Business Administration Diploma, and the Program Advisor for the Certificate in Business Management.

The BBA Advisor is responsible for goal coding the student’s BBA majors or minors in the student’s academic record, but will only do so if substantially all of the 1st and 2nd year requirements have been met. BBA goal coding happens in March and October of each year.  Besides goal coding, there are many reasons to speak with your Business Programs Advisor.

Do you have questions related to which BBA majors you can pursue, course options, elective requirements, or graduation requirements? Do you have questions about transfer credits, course registration, waitlists or prerequisites? 

If so, please email Andrea.Martin@viu.ca with your questions.
