Internship and Senior Project
BBA Enhancement Initiative
BBAE 101 (one credit – no registration fee) is designed to recognize pre-BBA enrolment activity which is considered supportive of future academic, career and personal development. It is also intended to enhance the student’s VIU experience by beginning the process of connectivity with VIU’s Faculty of Management.
This free credit is designed to be complemented by two upper level activities (BBAE 301 and 401) http://www.viu.ca/calendar/courses/BBAE.ASPX) tailored to the individual student’s educational goals. Each activity is granted one credit (both at one-third the cost of a regular three credit course) if it meets the Faculty of Management’s criteria for upper level rigour and has a demonstrated link to one or more of the BBA Learning Outcomes.
Both these upper level activities are to be scheduled by the student and this freedom is intended to allow the student to enhance his/her educational experience in a personally rewarding manner.
DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION - Application for BBAE 101 Credit
