Post-Diploma B.Mgt./B.Ed.

*** Intake suspended indefinitely 

Great opportunities exist for students with a business or business-related diploma from an approved college who want to study management and education. A special partnership with the Faculty of Education allows business diploma graduates the option to complete this degree in three and a half years and leads to two degrees being awarded.

The post-diploma Bachelor of Management/Bachelor of Education - Career and Technology Studies (CTS): Business Focus (Post Diploma B.Mgt./B.Ed.) combined degree program consists of 20 Education, eight Management and seven arts and science courses. The combined degree program includes three professional semesters where students practice teaching in schools.

This program is only available at the Lethbridge campus.

Admission Requirements

Students begin in the Pre-Post-Diploma B.Mgt./B.Ed. program in the Dhillon School of Business. After completion of one or two terms, including Education 2500, students must apply for admission to the Faculty of Education. Students are not officially in the Post-Diploma B.Mgt./B.Ed. Combined Degrees program until they have been admitted to both the Dhillon School of Business and the Faculty of Education.

Enrolment in both the Dhillon School of Business and the Faculty of Education is limited and fulfillment of the minimum admission requirements does not guarantee admission to the Combined Degrees program.  Applicants should consult Admission for general admission requirements, policies, and deadlines.

2.Faculty of Education Admission Requirements for the Post-Diploma B.Mgt./B.Ed.

Based on the Faculty’s quota system, normally a total of 216 students will be admitted to the Bachelor of Education programs (Combined Degrees and After Degree). Admission for this undergraduate teacher preparation program is available in the fall term only.

Because admission to the Faculty is competitive within each teaching major, the completion of minimum admission requirements does not guarantee admission to the program. Successful applicants are selected each year from a pool that includes both Combined Degrees and After Degree applicants.

Applicants are encouraged to consult early with Student Program Services in the Faculty of Education regarding admission requirements and program planning.


Students who choose to complete a major other than General Management may be required to extend their program beyond 35 courses. Please meet with an advisor to determine your major requirements.
