Program Requirements

Curriculum Framework

Minor in Management:

  • This minor is available for all degree students, at Douglas College, except those receiving a BBA in Management.
  • Successful completion of at least 24 credits from the Course Requirements list
  • 15 credits upper level (3000 - 4000) coursework required
  • Courses taken as a part of another credential can still be used to meet the requirements for this minor. For example, students taking the BBA Accounting are required to take BUSN 1210 for their major, but this course would also satisfy the BUSN 1210 requirement for this minor and contribute three credits towards this minor’s 24 required credits.

Total Credits





1. CMNS 2317, CMNS 3316 or an approved BUSN course (focused on organizational communication management, conflict management and/or negotiation) can be taken instead. However, students would need to ensure they meet all pre-requisite requirements for entry into these courses.

2. BUSN 4490 or other approved Business Ethics course can be taken instead of BUSN 3314.

3. Students from non-Commerce and Business Administration programs will likely not possess the required pre-requisite courses for some upper level BUSN courses. Courses, such as BUSN 3800, BUSN 3253, BUSN 3380, BUSN 3600, BUSN 4410 and BUSN 4460, have fewer pre-requisite requirements, and thus, should be considered by these students. Students who have taken more finance or accounting courses might prefer taking courses, such as BUSN 4275, assuming they meet the pre-requisite requirements.
