The Trent Business Advantage

Experience a Collaborative Business Education

At Trent, we recognize the integral role innovative and creative thinking
plays in the world of business. That’s why our popular Business
Program offers all the advantages of a traditional Bachelor of Business
Administration (BBA) and more.

Trent’s BBA focuses on economics, management and entrepreneurship
with a full slate of accounting courses that prepare you for the CPA
designation or as a launch pad to an MBA. We are also the only
university in Canada to offer a wide range of joint majors in Business
Administration, allowing you to combine business courses with other
areas of interest – from Media Studies to Environmental Studies and
everything in between. The Trent advantage allows you to combine
your passions and interests and cross boundaries, no matter which
program or major you are interested in.
