Bachelor of Applied Management

The Bachelor of Applied Management (BAMgt) provides journeypersons and non-business diploma and certificate graduates with the ability to leverage their existing education and experience into a bachelor's degree with only the equivalent of two years of additional study, which can be completed either full or part-time.

Four out of ten people in management in Saskatchewan are over the age of 55. This means there will be a significant amount of retirements on the horizon which is an opportunity for those with the right combination of skills, experience and education.

You will build knowledge and skills in a wide range of leadership and management disciplines including accountancy, human resource management, business communications, strategic management, leadership development, business analytics, finance, change management, risk management, commercial law, and economics.

Classes are offered both in-person and via Zoom in the evenings and there are options each semester for courses which are offered exclusively online. This program flexibility means that students can work full-time while they complete their degree. Domestic students can attend from anywhere in Canada with a computer, webcam, and a stable internet connection, allowing them the additional flexibility of distance learning.

SHEQAB-sealThis degree program is offered with the written authorization of the Minister of Advanced Education, effective July 1, 2019. This authorization was provided after the program proposal underwent a quality assurance review and was found to meet the standards established by the Minister. Prospective students are responsible for satisfying themselves that the degree program and the degree will be appropriate to their needs.

Admission method

First Qualified/First Admitted

The First Qualified/First Admitted (FQFA) process is used for the majority of Saskatchewan Polytechnic programs. When we determine that you meet the program's admission requirements, you will be offered admission based on the date you fully qualify for the program. The earlier you provide the appropriate documents and information that qualify you for admission to the next intake, the earlier you might begin your studies. Your application, once qualified, is always considered for the next intake. 

Applicants to programs with multiple intakes in an academic year remain in the application pool until the last intake for that academic year has begun. Programs using the FQFA process receive applications year round and maintain an application pool for each academic year. Qualified applicants who are not offered a seat must reapply for the next academic year. 

Sponsored programs or programs targeted to specific groups do not accept applications year round or maintain an application pool.

See Admission Processes for more information about this method of admission.
