40-course Bachelor of Management (BMgt) Degree

Flexible Degrees for Working Adults

Building on a year of foundational liberal arts studies followed by a professional study in management, the Bachelor of Management (BMgt) degree prepares students for careers in business, industry, education, and government.

If you are a direct high school/secondary school transfer, a mature student, or a general post-secondary course credits transfer student (i.e. you have not yet been awarded with a 2-year college diploma, a 3 or 4 year Bachelors degree, a graduate degree, or their recognized equivalents, at the time of application to uLethbridge), then you may be eligible for admission into the university's standard, 40-course (120.0 credits), BMgt degree. While 40-courses is the base duration of the BMgt degree if starting from Year 1 (i.e. as a direct high school transfer), this number may be reduced, depending on if the successfully admitted student has completed any post-secondary level coursework (academic/for-credit) from their prior schools and been subsequently determined by Admissions to have received recognized transfer credit for individual ones, where merited.

All successfully admitted BMgt degree students are given up to a maximum of 10 years to graduate from their program, following their first semester of study.

At the Calgary Campus, 1-of-5 majors can be pursued within the 40-course BMgt degree program (click on the below links for more details):

    • Applicants presenting 5 or fewer transferable courses (<= 15.0 credit hours) will concurrently have their high school marks assessed as part of their uLethbridge admission GPA
    • The aforementioned Math Admission Requirement will continue to be applicable for all Post-Secondary Course Credits Transfer students

UNDERGRADUATE APPLICATION FEE: $140.00 CAD

  • The above non-refundable and non-negotiable charge will be applicable to ALL applicants - new, returning, domestic, and international
  • According to university policy, the undergraduate application fee will not be waived for any future student, under any circumstances
  • Please contact the uLethbridge Admissions & Transfer unit (admissions@uleth.ca) for alternate ways to pay if you are unable to pay via credit card

TUITION FEES: Undergraduate tuition (any program, major, admission route, and campus), will always be assessed in direct proportion to the number of courses that the admitted student registers themselves in, per semester - never on whole programs as fees can always be subject to annual change, as authorized by the uLethbridge Board of Governors.

*All students are to be mindful of and personally responsible for any additional, non-compulsory costs which may be incurred by them upon their successful admittance into any University of Lethbridge program or campus (e.g. textbooks/course materials, personal expenses, transportation, living accommodations, etc.)


TEXTBOOK FEES: It is also recommended for students to anticipate budgeting an additional ~$125 CAD or so, PER COURSE for textbooks, as these costs are to be factored in on-top of tuition (I.e. textbooks are technically an extra expense to the student)

  • Some books might cost more, some might cost less, some courses might use multiple textbooks, while some courses might use no textbook at all
  • Textbook prices are determined by the respective publishing house of a given title, while the overarching use of and quantity of textbooks needed for class learning purposes is determined by the individual uLethbridge course instructor

uLethbridge's International Centre (international.new@uleth.ca) is able to provide counsel to both prospective and current international students on matters pertaining, but not limited to: international travel/quarantine requirements, immigration, Canadian residency, Canadian study permits/work permits/Post-Graduation Work Permits (PGWP), or bringing dependents, among others (see additional weblinks below):

*IMPORTANT: Due to our small size, the Calgary Campus currently does not possess any of its own institutionally-managed housing (onsite or offsite) services for admitted students, at this time. As a result, all inbound out-of-city/out-of-country students who are in need of living accommodations within the City of Calgary while they pursue their academic studies with uLethbridge, will be responsible for sourcing and coordinating their own living arrangements via researching local listing websites, such as (but not limited to):

All successfully admitted undergraduate and graduate program students (domestic and international) are provided with the opportunity to apply into the university’s Co-operative Education and Work-Integrated Learning Program (“Co-op” for short) as a way to supplement their studies and enhance the value of their program and potential employment prospects upon graduation. Co-op job positions will usually consist of full-time paid work experience and will be typically related to the student’s respective area of study/major.

At this time, Co-op Work Terms are not built directly into any given uLethbridge credential program’s curriculum and are also not required for graduation purposes, at this time – that is, they are 100% OPTIONAL, meaning that a student can fully graduate from their respective uLethbridge credential program without pursuing a Co-op.

Admission into Co-op will entail its own separate application process to which individual students can elect to apply for at any time during their studies (even during one's first year) so long as it is accomplished before formally applying to graduate from the university during their last term of study.

Students may elect to declare up to a maximum of two (optional) minors within a single undergraduate-level certificate or Bachelors degree program, either at the time of application or added at any point during one's studies prior to graduation.

Minors are defined as a set of 6 distinct courses (18.0 credits), per minor, which are to be completed on-top of the student's base coursework in their primary program and ultimately aim to provide learners with a fundamental depth of knowledge in a particular sub-discipline (which do not necessarily have to be related to one's major or program faculty). Upon the successful completion of all calendar-mandated course requirements, the student's chosen minor(s) will be denoted on their official uLethbridge transcript.

While there are 47 possible undergraduate minors to select from with uLethbridge, the Calgary Campus however can only guarantee completion for the following 6 at this time, due to our small size:

  1. Accounting - Cannot be declared by ACCT majors
  2. Health Leadership
  3. International Management - Cannot be declared by IMGT majors. Will entail the completion of at least one full-term/4-month outbound international exchange
  4. Marketing - Cannot be declared by MKTG majors
  5. Mental Health
  6. Population Health

Consult the current undergraduate Academic Calendar ("Minors" section) to determine which exact courses are to be completed in order to satisfy the curriculum requirements for specific minors. Minor course requirements can be subject to change with every new calendar year. uLethbridge's 41 other declarable undergraduate minors, as listed in the Calendar, are exclusive to the Lethbridge Campus, at this time

*IMPORTANT: No undergraduate minor can be fully completed in one single semester as not all associated courses are offered every term. In addition, many minors will entail courses with pre-requisite conditions, which means that said courses will need to be be completed in a certain sequential order due to their progressive knowledge-building/laddering structures.
