Program Notes


  1. To be considered for entry into the Honours Commerce Program, a Business I student must have met all of the following:
    • achieved a GPA of at least 5.0 on a minimum of 24 units of course work for Business I and these must include all required courses of the Business I program;
    • successfully completed all Business I required courses (See Business I Requirements). An exception to this condition is that no more than a single failure of a Business I required course is allowed for students with a GPA of at least 5.0 on a minimum of 24 units of course work for Business I. These students must successfully complete the failed course at the earliest possible opportunity or they will not be able to continue in the program;
    • successfully completed ALL required units of Business I course work and successfully completed enough units of elective course work where the total of successful units of course work equals 24 units.
  2. Students seeking a Minor in Mathematics and Statistics must take MATH 1A03 and should refer to the Faculty of Science section of this Calendar for the requirements for a Minor in Mathematics and Statistics. Students neither seeking this Minor nor planning on a transfer to the Faculty of Science, are advised to take MATH 1M03.
  3. Transfer students may be admitted from other universities or from other Faculties within McMaster University. Academic requirements for admission of transfer students will be more demanding than those for Business I students.
  4. Courses that are cross-listed with Commerce courses are considered Commerce electives for the purposes of fulfilling program requirements. This is the case regardless of the course-code the student has enrolled under.
  5. Non-Commerce students may enrol in specific upper-year Commerce courses if they have been accepted into a Specialized Minor offered by the Faculty of Business or can demonstrate that they are pursuing an interdisciplinary minor for which the specific Commerce courses are included.
