Admission Requirements 

Students may not apply to enter a Specialization in BMOS when they apply for admission to the University. Enrolment is limited, possession of the University's minimum admission requirements does not guarantee admission.

Students applying for a BMOS SPECIALIZATION after first, second, or third year must have

  1. an overall average of at least 70% on the last 5.0 courses completed;
  2. obtained a passing grade for each course required for admission to the module, and a passing grade for all option courses; and
  3. a minimum cumulative average of 65%.

Students enrolled at another Affiliated University College or the Constituent University must meet the admission requirements in order to transfer into a BMOS SPECIALIZATION at King's.

Progression Requirements

To progress in the BMOS SPECIALIZATION, students must

  1. maintain a minimum cumulative average of 65%
  2. obtain a minimum sessional average of 60% in the fall/winter term*

* Sessional averages are calculated in May, after the fall/winter term.
In order to be readmitted to the BMOS SPECIALIZATION, students must complete 5.0 additional courses in another discipline, achieve a minimum average of 70% in their last 5.0 courses, and have a cumulative average of 65%.

Graduation Requirements

Students must obtain a minimum overall average of 65% on the 20.0 courses to be counted for graduation. Students with advanced standing must achieve an overall average of 65% on courses completed at Western.

In addition to the module requirements for the different streams, all BMOS Four-Year Specialization students require the following before graduation:

1.0 "Ethics" course, as noted in the module requirements.
2.0 designated essay courses (E, F, or G), 1.0 at the senior level.
1.0 course from each of Categories A, B, and C.

MINOR MODULE COMBINATIONS

BMOS Specializations may be completed in conjunction with a Minor in a wide range of subject areas. Students planning to complete a BMOS Specialization with a Minor should plan their course selection with careful attention to prerequisites and King’s residency requirements. The requirements for specific Minors are listed elsewhere in the calendar.

Note: Programs may change from year to year.


BMOS Internship Program

The BMOS Internship Program includes a series of preparatory sessions, an 8- to 16-month internship in a relevant employment setting, and a post-internship component. All students enrolled in the 3rd year of a BMOS module are eligible to apply to the BMOS Internship Program. The minimum academic requirement is a 70% average in second year and the successful completion of Business Administration 2257. Students will be required to attend all preparatory workshops. An administration fee is payable upon appointment to an internship placement. Students who have qualified to receive a continuing scholarship for the academic year during which they participate in the BMOS Internship Program are permitted to defer receipt of the scholarship for one year. Participation in the internship placement will delay graduation by one year.

A Pass/Fail grade will be assigned. Credit for the internship cannot be counted toward any degree or program. Successful completion will be recognized on a student's degree transcript through the addition of the words "With internship." Interested students should apply to the BMOS Internship Coordinator by October of their 3rd academic year. Please note that International students are not eligible for this program.
