UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS

The Faculty of Administration offers an array of programs that include both general and specialized courses in all areas of management. This delicate balance between general and specialized training is made necessary by the complexity of the problems facing administrators today. They must fully understand the economic, political, social, and technical environment in which they work (general instruction) and they must also be ready to think and act in light of advanced management concepts (specialized instruction). This is why the baccalaureate programs at the Faculty of Administration have been designed to allow students to blend general and specialized training according to their specific objectives. It is hoped that this flexibility will not only help students attain their career objectives but also prepare and inspire them to expand their knowledge even after graduation and throughout their professional life.

PROGRAM CHART

The chart sets out the various baccalaureate programs offered at the Faculty of Administration. All have a common core of courses designed to give students the fundamentals in Management as well as in other general academic fields, a must for all modern administrators. Courses from the common core are usually taken over the first two years of the program.

Students looking to enter the work market quickly with sound general knowledge, solid basic training in management techniques and practical business insights may opt for the baccalaureate in administration (BAdm), which is of three years' duration. There is a description of this program's content and hints on how to plan a course of studies in the baccalaureate in administration section.

Students wanting more specialized instruction in the principal areas of management may register for the honours baccalaureate in commerce degree (BCom(Hon)) which usually takes four years to complete. It is a tremendously flexible program. The structure and content of the program as well as advice on how to plan a program and how to choose program options are given in the section entitled description of programs.

Courses are offered regularly in the language of your choice (French and English); they are scheduled during the day and in the evenings and can be taken on a part-time or full-time basis. All the common core courses and most electives are given in both official languages. Some advanced courses with low enrolment are given in pairs on a joint rotational basis (JRB), that is, a given year, one course is given in French and the other one in English and the next year, the first course is given in English and the second one in French. The faculty undergraduate committee may decide to add courses to or withdraw courses from this category, based on the number of students registered in these courses.

A weak demand may cause the cancellation of an elective course or, if it is a JRB course, the equivalent course in the other language

BACCALAUREATE IN ADMINISTRATION (BAdm)

If you are looking to enter the job market quickly, with sound general knowledge, solid basic training in management techniques, and practical business insights, you should consider the baccalaureate in administration.

This program will provide you with the fundamentals of Management which are contained within the core of courses common to all baccalaureate programs.

Beyond the common core you must choose 15 credits (five courses) among electives in third year (although some of these electives may be taken in second year). The 4000-level courses are not permitted in the baccalaureate in administration. Your career objectives will determine your choices.

If you do not plan to continue your studies but wish to enter the job market following completion of this program, you may choose your electives within the areas of management which interest you (for example, accounting, marketing, human resource management). Also, you may decide to choose the electives you feel will be most useful in your chosen career (for example, for those who plan a small business start-up, ADM 3313, 3318 may be of interest).

On the other hand, if you plan to return to complete an honours baccalaureate in commerce after a year or so on the job market, you should choose your electives in keeping with the anticipated selection of a specialization. The credits for the course ADM 3310 Management of the Total Enterprise will not be retained in the honours baccalaureate in commerce program. Students who have obtained a baccalaureate in administration degree (94 credits) must complete at least 39 additional credits (total of a minimum 133 credits) to obtain the honours baccalaureate in commerce.

HONOURS BACCALAUREATE IN COMMERCE -BCom-Hon--

The honours programs in commerce are actually enriched high-level administration programs leading to a number of career opportunities (work at the executive level, accounting consulting, management information systems specialist, business creation, etc.) and providing the basic instruction required to undertake studies at the graduate level (master's and doctorate).

Students may choose either an honours program with or without options, or a specialized honours program in accounting or in management information systems (MIS). All these programs last four years and normally carry 124 credits, including the common core of courses that are a compulsory part of all baccalaureate programs at the Faculty of Administration. (Please note that the specialized honours program in MIS has its own core.)

Students must maintain a cumulative grade point average of 4.5 to be admitted to and remain eligible for honours baccalaureate in commerce programs.

Honours programs with or without option

Students who wish in-depth knowledge of more than one of the areas of study offered by the Faculty may do so by choosing the honours baccalaureate in commerce program without option, or, with one or two options. These various possibilities provide more flexibility in course selection, allowing emphasis on preferred areas of study. The learning process remains very comprehensive and well-structured. It must be noted that students can take any of the honours programs under the co-op system during which, after the second year, study sessions alternate with work terms. More information is given in the section on co-operative education programs.

Honours Baccalaureate in Commerce program without option

This program provides the greatest flexibility in course selection. Without specializing in any particular area, it still allows students to acquire a solid background in most management related fields.

Honours Baccalaureate in Commerce program with one option

As indicated on the program chart, students may select among seven options. These options are in keeping with the main trends of the business world today. By choosing this program, students will be able to concentrate on one specific area of study and maintain great flexibility in course selection.

Honours Baccalaureate in Commerce program with two options

By selecting this program, students can focus on two areas of interest. The program chart outlines the options that are offered. It is important to note that both accounting and management information systems can be taken as second options only.

Students have until the end of their second year to select their program options. However, it is advisable to do so as early as possible for better course planning. All options consist of six courses (18 credits).

The ADM 4000-level courses are strictly reserved for students admitted to the fourth year of the honours baccalaureate in commerce program.

Specialized programs: accounting and management information systems

Both of these specialized programs offered by the Faculty of Administration are models of creativity though they adhere strictly to the requirements set out by the authorized professional associations.

Students interested in these programs will note that because of the high number of compulsory courses needed to meet professional requirements in these cases, it is best to decide on these options as soon as possible. In particular, the honours accounting program should be taken up preferably at the end of the fall session of second year and no later than at the end of this same year. Similarly, it is best to start the management information systems option at the beginning of the first year; however, students can still choose this program at the start of their second year.

HONOURS BACCALAUREATE IN COMMERCE -without option-

The four-year honours baccalaureate in commerce program without option allows students to acquire substantial knowledge in management related fields without necessarily specializing in one of these fields. Students can thus receive instruction in fields as varied as accounting, finance, marketing, production, human resources, international management, management information systems, and other fields. This enables students to design their own program according to their career aspirations.

This degree is suitable to students wishing to enrol with an international exchange program because it is not always possible for them to specialize in a specific area while attending a university overseas.

OPTION IN FINANCE

The option in finance was designed to meet the needs of students contemplating a career in financial and treasury management. The field of finance has expanded considerably in the past few years with the globalization of world financial markets, the quick pace of financial innovation, and the emergence of numerous types of new securities. Students enrolled in the finance option will prepare for these changes by learning about the characteristics, pricing, and practical applications of traditional and innovative financial instruments, as well as about the overall financial management of institutions.

OPTION IN HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT

In recent years, the growing realization of the importance of proper human resource management has been reflected in the hiring of people with specialized skills in personnel management, compensation, labour relations, training and management development, and the use of organizational development consultants. The purpose of the program in human resource management is to provide an in-depth knowledge of the three management functions that have become most critical in modern organizations: personnel management, industrial relations and organizational behaviour. The program emphasizes both practical and conceptual skills to enable students to work in all areas of human resource management in both the public and private sectors.

The introductory courses in organizational behaviour and human resource management may have sparked an interest in the area of human resource management. This option offers advanced courses in the areas of industrial relations, collective bargaining, staffing, compensation administration, organization design and managing change.

Although the student may choose any of the options available, the options in public policy and public management and in marketing are particularly well-suited to accompany the option in human resource management for students contemplating a career in the public sector.

OPTION IN PUBLIC POLICY AND PUBLIC MANAGEMENT

In Canada, an important share of national expenditures is accounted for by the public sector, and government regulation pervades our work and our lives. The field of public policy and public management examines the way in which decisions are made in the public sector and considers the nature of public sector management. The objective of this option is to prepare students to take up managerial responsibilities in the public sector or to enable private sector managers to deal knowledgeably with their public sector counterparts. Studies concentrate on the specifics of public sector management including financial management and peculiarities of the policy process in the public sector.

Although any of the options available may be chosen with the option in public policy and public management, the options in finance, human resource management and international management are particularly well-suited. Students choosing this option are advised to do so as early as possible in order to accommodate courses which are complementary to their program.

OPTION IN MARKETING

Our marketing program is designed to teach how and why people and organizations purchase and consume goods and services. Marketing is a system of interacting business and organizational activities designed to plan, develop, price, promote and distribute products and services. The study of marketing concepts has expanded to include an understanding of the environment in which buyers and sellers operate. Recent applications of marketing to formerly unrelated activities, such as political elections and promoting government programs and agencies, are introduced in more advanced courses for analysis and discussion. As a result of the increased breadth of marketing and the complexity and size of the decisions to be made, marketing requires a good knowledge of both the quantitative and the qualitative concepts, models, theories and techniques of the other areas taught within the Faculty of Administration.

This option may be chosen once you have completed second year and the introductory marketing course. Advanced courses in this area include consumer behaviour, market research and marketing strategy.

Any one of the options available may be chosen to accompany the marketing option. An international management option is strongly recommended.

OPTION IN PRODUCTION-MANAGEMENT SCIENCE

Our production-management science option is designed for students who wish to develop a sound understanding of the concepts, techniques, and applications of production management in service and manufacturing organizations. In this option, students will become familiar with the quantitative tools of managerial decision-making needed to make effective use of productive resources.

In their first courses, students choosing this option will be exposed to a variety of decision support models used in the solution of practical problems in a number of different areas, for example market studies, financial planning, production control. In these courses, students will learn how to develop a mathematical, economic, and statistical description of a complex decision or control problem and how to analyze the probable consequences of making a particular decision together with the development of an appropriate measure for comparing the relative merits of the alternative decisions.

The remainder of this option consists of more advanced courses in the area of quantitative decision-making (application of simulation in business, statistical analysis, forecasting, information systems, probabilistic models and optimization). Second options that are particularly recommended are MIS, finance and marketing.

This option is particularly suited for students who are apt in quantitative methods. Students considering this option are encouraged to choose optional courses early in their program of studies which will provide them with a good basic knowledge of mathematics and computer science.

SECOND OPTIONS FOR THE HONOURS PROGRAMS

The student who chooses an honours program with option will be able to take one or two options. The second options offered are the following: entrepreneurial management, finance, human resource management, international management, marketing, public policy and public management, production-management science, accounting and management information systems. When choosing a second option, it is recommended to meet with an academic adviser.

The accounting and management information systems options can only be taken jointly with another option. Therefore, it may not be taken as a single option. The student who wishes to specialize in either one of these two areas should enrol in the specialized honours program in accounting or in management information systems.

All of the second options will appear in second position on the diploma.

SPECIALIZED PROGRAM IN ACCOUNTING

If you decide to specialize in accounting you may also wish to join one of the professional accounting bodies such as the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants, the Certified General Accountants or the Society of Management Accountants of Canada. Many of the courses you take within your program may count toward a professional designation. However, some of the courses required by the professional associations are not necessarily required in our Accounting program. Those courses can therefore be taken as electives or as additional courses to your program. Brochures are available at undergraduate student services for consultation.

Since there is a common core of courses for the first two years of study in a program of the faculty, your decision to specialize in accounting may be postponed until the fall session or the winter session of the second year. The course ADM 2342 Intermediate Accounting I sets the stage for further studies in the area; you must take this course during the winter of the second year.

Within the accounting program, you may decide to take the regular program or you may be interested in applying to the co-operative program.

SPECIALIZED PROGRAM IN MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEMS -MIS-

The specialized program in MIS is recommended for students who are considering a career as business systems analysts, or who have a particular interest in and aptitude for computer science. This is a demanding program combining business systems and management principles with a sound knowledge of computer science and its application to the business environment.

Although it is preferable that you choose this program at the start of your first year, many students discover an interest in this area only after they have been exposed to it in their first-year course CSI 1301. It is advisable to register for CSI 1100 as soon as possible during your program, ideally during the winter session of the first year. CSI 1101 is normally offered during the summer. The academic advisers may help you make this change, normally without any loss of credit.

CO-OPERATIVE EDUCATION PROGRAMS

At the Faculty of Administration, co-operative education programs are available for all four-year programs; this allows students to obtain a specialization while combining academic studies with practical work experience.

Students enter into an honours baccalaureate where the first two years are identical to the corresponding specialized programs. Students must request admission to the co-op program during the fall of their second year of studies by September 30.

At the end of the second year, paid work terms within an organization will alternate with study periods (same courses as the regular programs). As indicated in the following table, the accounting program has three work terms. Students in all other programs must complete four work terms. Work terms are usually of a four-month duration.

One important point to note is that the Ontario Institute of Chartered Accountants has accredited the co-operative program in accounting. This means that the 12-month work term in a chartered accounting firm will count toward the experience requirements stipulated by the Institute.

Admission procedure

Step 1

Students must submit their application for admission to the central co-op office before September 30 of their second year (March 1 for accounting). To be considered for admission, students must be registered full-time in the honours program to which they are applying, have completed all first-year courses and be registered to all courses in the fall term of their second year (or equivalent), and have a cumulative grade point average of 6.0 or more. They must also have Canadian citizenship or permanent resident status.

Applicants are assessed on a competitive basis according to their academic performance. The applicant must be able to complete the required number of work terms in an alternating work-study term sequence approved for the discipline.

Once admitted, students will have to maintain their full-time status during each work and study term.

Applications are to be submitted to:

Central Co-op OfficeCo-operative Education ProgramsUniversity of Ottawa100 Thomas More, 4th FloorOttawa, Ontario K1N 6N5Telephone: (613) 562-5741

Step 2

Students admitted to the co-op program apply to available positions and are interviewed by employers, who rate the students and rank them by order of preference. Students also have an opportunity to rank employers. Students and employers are then matched (according to the rankings) with their best possible choice.

Step 3

At the beginning of each work term, a student must submit a work term proposal to the co-op academic adviser in the Faculty of Administration's undergraduate student services.

Step 4

At the end of each work term, a student must submit a work term report to the central co-op office. This report is due at the beginning of the following session.

Work terms

Length of work term: Normally, a work term lasts 15 weeks with a minimum of 13 weeks. The dates for the beginning and end of the work term are set by the central co-op office. However, to suit the needs of the employers and students, these dates can sometimes be adjusted when the contract is signed. Any change to the official dates requires the consent of the central co-op office.

Failure to report to employer: If students fail to report to their employers or leave a job without prior approval of the office, they will be given an "ABS" for the work term and will be asked to withdraw from the program unless they can provide evidence of exceptional circumstances.

Registration: Prior to the start of the work term, students must register to the appropriate work term course code. Once registered students can only withdraw from this course with the written permission of the central co-op office. Exceptionally, while on work term, students could be allowed to take at most one three-credit evening course with written permission of their academic adviser. Even for one course, students will have to demonstrate to the adviser that they are not taking this course to advance their program of study, and that they will be able to follow the sequence of work-study as approved for their program of study and finish with a full-time study term (minimum of 12 credits).

Co-op fee: Students pay a co-op fee from the time of admission and for each study and work term thereafter.

Strikes, dismissals:

a) Strikes: During a strike, students must immediately inform the co-ordinator. Under no circumstances will the University be responsible for any loss of salary.

b) Dismissals: If a student is dismissed by an employer, the co-ordinating committee will conduct a thorough investigation. If the dismissal is deemed to be without just cause, no mention will be made in the student's file; otherwise, the student will be given an F for the work term and be asked to withdraw from the program.

Work Term Reports: At the end of each work term, students must submit a work term report. This report is handed in at the central co-op office and is due at the beginning of the following term. The report is graded by the faculty. In deciding on a final mark (P or F) for the work term, both the report and the employer's evaluation are taken into account. Students who do not submit a work term report will be given the grade INC.

Graduation requirements: To obtain the citation "co-operative education program", students must maintain the minimum CGPA required in the program and obtain the passing grade on four work terms in the commerce and management information systems programs and three in the accounting program. Furthermore, they must be registered in the co-operative program from their admission until the final academic session.

Advanced standing: When a student joins a program with advanced standing, the co-ordinating committee must specify the minimum number of work terms which must be successfully completed by the student.

Change of session sequence: Students who wish to change their work-study session sequence must write a letter to the central co-op office outlining the exceptional reasons for such a request.

Placement process

The central co-op office sets a deadline at each step in the placement process. If the student fails to comply with these dates, the office cannot guarantee the student that he or she will be considered for a placement during that session.

Seeking employment: Students are expected to seek employment throughout the interview process arranged by the central co-op office. Students must not seek employment directly from any participating employer unless they have the approval of the office. Any job which is not obtained through the central co-op office must be evaluated before it may count as a work term.

Student files: For those students seeking employment, a summary of their files will be made available to prospective employers.

Interviews and rankings: Students who submit a job interview request form accept to participate in the placement process and accept the position obtained by the matching process.

Any student who misses an interview without just cause may be withdrawn from the placement process.

Students are required to rank the jobs for which they are interviewed except as provided in item two. Ranking a position indicates an agreement to take the position if placed there. If a student refuses the placement assigned by the co-op office or wishes to withdraw from a work term report course without cause, he or she will be withdrawn at the end of the work term and will be given an ABS for that uncompleted work term report course. An INC, F or ABS is equivalent to a failure mark (zero) and affects the student's CGPA.

Deleting job choice: After the interview period, students must submit their employer ranking form to the central co-op office. Normally, they may decide not to rank at most one of the positions for which they had an interview. In exceptional circumstances, the office may allow a student to delete more than one ranking.

Acceptance of employment: Students are notified by the central co-op office of a placement as early as possible. Students who return to the employer they worked for during the previous work term must contact the office before the deadline for submitting job interview request forms.

Probation and withdrawals

1. Probation: At the end of each term the co-ordinating committee reviews the performance of each co-op student. It will recommend to the faculty committee on academic standing that co-op students be placed on probation for co-op if they have failed to maintain a CGPA of at least 6.0.

Students who are on probation for co-op will be removed from probation if they show improvement by achieving a CGPA of at least 6.0. Probation will never be extended beyond two study sessions; students who may not then be removed from probation will be forced to withdraw from the program.

2. Withdrawals: Student who fail a compulsory course that is a prerequisite to a course to be taken during the following study session will be asked to withdraw from the program.

Students who have been asked to withdraw from the co-op program may be allowed to pursue the regular program if this is consistent with other faculty regulations. However, the citation "co-operative education program" will not be included on the student's diploma.

Standings and appeals

All recommendations to withdraw or to be placed on probation must be approved by the faculty committee on academic standing. All appeals concerning recommendations of the co-ordinating committee are handled by the faculty.

Benefits

Work terms help students to gain experience in their field of study, thus making it easier to find a permanent job.

Practical experience in a work environment enables students to make better career choices and, if necessary, to make adjustments to their program at an early stage;

Team-work provides the student with the chance to develop communication skills and enhance maturity and self-confidence.

The salary earned helps to meet educational expenses.

INTERNATIONAL EXCHANGE PROGRAMS

For a few years now, undergraduate students from the faculty have had an opportunity to spend a semester or a year abroad under the international exchange program. So far, the faculty has agreements with Australia, France, England, the United States, the Netherlands, Mexico, Sweden, Norway, Germany, Denmark and Thailand.

In today's world, it is essential for an administration student's studies to include a global orientation. These exchange programs provide just such a unique opportunity. Students can complete their academic and professional endeavours in a different environment and at the same time discover another country, a new culture and different customs.

The language of instruction is English, except in some institutions in France and Mexico. Among the schools in France participating in the program are: l'École supérieure de commerce de Reims (ESC-Reims), l'École supérieure de commerce de Grenoble (ESC-Grenoble), and l'École supérieure de commerce de Nantes Atlantique. These schools are members of the Conférence des grandes écoles.

The faculty organizes information sessions for students who would like to participate in these exchange programs. The sessions take place in the fall semester. Students are selected every year towards the end of January on the basis of an application file (letter of motivation, résumé, university transcripts). The application deadline is January 31.

To participate in the exchange program, students must have completed, before their departure, at least 60 credits of a baccalaureate program of the Faculty of Administration, including all first- and second-year courses from the common core. Students who complete successfully the international exchange program and do not complete all of the courses required for the option(s) will receive a baccalaureate of commerce diploma without option or specialization.

In all cases, Canadian students pay tuition fees at the University of Ottawa, and pay their own travel and residence expenses. No tuition fees are paid abroad by exchange students. The successful completion of the one-year program of academic activities (including the work period where applicable) in the host institution entitles the students to 30 credits (or 15 credits for a one-semester stay). The CGPA at the end of the last year in Ottawa is used for the determination of honours standings.

For more information on the progam at the undergraduate level, consult the administrator, Sylvie Séguin-Jak, at 562-5821.

CERTIFICATE PROGRAMS

The Faculty of Administration offers programs leading to the certificate in business administration, the certificate in labour-management relations, the certificate in public administration and the certificate in arts administration. The objective of these programs is to provide some academic background in management for those working in the private or public sectors who are pursuing or who wish to pursue a career in management. Each program comprises ten courses (at least 30 credits).

General admission requirements

1. The admission requirements of the baccalaureate programs are also applicable to the certificate programs; however, the candidates are not required to have completed OACs in Mathematics or the equivalent.

2. Candidates applying for admission to one of these programs usually have some professional experience. They should include a résumé with their application indicating the extent and relevance of prior experience. This will have a significant impact on the admission decision.

3. Certificate programs may not be taken on a full-time basis unless course prerequisites can be fully respected.

Requirements of the certificate programs

In order to obtain a certificate from the Faculty of Administration, students must:

1. be admitted and registered in one of the certificate programs of the Faculty;
