Program Notes


  1. For entry into the Honours Commerce Program, a Business 1, student:
    • Must have a Grade Point Average (GPA) of at least 5.0
    • Must have passed a minimum of 24 units of course work for Business I
    • Must have attempted all required courses of the Business I program
    • Cannot have failed more than one required course or have more than six units of failure
    • May repeat failed courses in order to qualify for Level II. Please refer to the McMaster Repeat Policy.
  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 1MM3.
  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.
