Bachelor of Applied Management

Bachelor of Applied Management

Program Overview

In Saskatchewan, 4 out of every 10 people currently working in management are over the age of 55. Retirement is looming for nearly half our management workforce. This reality presents an opportunity for those with the right combination of skills, experience, and education.

The new Bachelor of Applied Management (BAMgt) degree program provides journeypersons and non-business diploma graduates with a unique opportunity to leverage existing education and experience into a bachelor's degree with only two years of additional study.

The BAMgt degree is designed to meet the emerging need for qualified managers by providing you with two years of course credit towards the four-year bachelor's degree. The program provides theoretical knowledge and technical training through applied learning opportunities. 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.

On-campus classes are offered evenings and weekends, which makes completing the program accessible while continuing to work full-time.


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.
