The Commerce Department offers undergraduates programs including a Bachelor of Commerce with an honours program, B.A. Commerce majors and minors, and a Bachelor of Commerce with an Aviation specialism. Commerce students at MtA complete a minor in another discipline as well as degree requirements elsewhere in the university. Faculty contribute teaching to the core of the program and to their areas of specialism.
Faculty are research active with local, national and international collaborators and lead community-engaged research and experiential learning projects involving undergraduate students. Currently, faculty members hold grants with Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, New Brunswick Innovation Foundation (NBIF) and Co-operative Education and Work-Integrated Learning Canada (CEWIL).
Experiential learning has long been a distinguishing feature of the Commerce program with individual faculty members regularly designing and delivering course-related experiential and work-integrated-learning opportunities ranging from guest speakers and field trips, knowledge mobilization projects, research and organizational quality assurance projects, live case studies, student summer research opportunities and case competitions, as well as mentorships and internships.
