The Bachelor of Commerce - Indigenous Business Studies program offers all Asper School of Business students an opportunity to complement their major with courses or with a second major that many corporate and Indigenous employers value.


Interesting courses:

  • Exploring Indigenous Perspectives
  • Environment, Economy and Indigenous Peoples
  • Financial Statement Analysis
  • Small Business Finance

  • New Venture Analysis
  • Indigenous Spirituality
  • Indigenous Business Leadership
  • Indigenous Organizations

Professional opportunities

Students who obtain an Indigenous Business Studies major to complement any one of the other majors (i.e. Finance, Accounting, Human Resources) will have a competitive advantage when they seek employment at an organization that works with Indigenous communities (such as RBC, Great West Life, Manitoba Hydro, Chartered Accountants, etc.). As the Indigenous population continues to grow in Manitoba, this competitive advantage will set you apart from other candidates. This major is open to both Indigenous and non-Indigenous students.

NOTE: Applications for this program must be submitted to the Bachelor of Commerce program within the application portal for acceptance/admission. Students complete their first year taking the necessary pre-requisite courses to gain admission into the major in second year.
