Admission Requirements

The Bachelor of Management (B.Mgt.) as a Second Degree program in the Dhillon School of Business is available to applicants who have completed an approved undergraduate degree in a field other than Management or an equivalent, and have a minimum GPA of 2.00 (on the University of Lethbridge 4.00 scale) on their most recent undergraduate degree. An approved degree is a baccalaureate degree requiring a minimum of 30 courses (90.0 credit hours), or its academic equivalent, from a recognized degree-granting institution.
