All Yorkville University online BBA programs are offered without a required residency component.

On-campus

Yorkville University offers on-campus programs in Toronto, Ontario and Vancouver, British Columbia. Canadian students studying on-campus can enroll in some or all their courses online. This added flexibility allows students to select a delivery mode according to their preferences and what best suits their learning needs, at any given time.

The Bachelor of Business Administration program at Yorkville University is structured in a three-term year.  A standard course load, is four courses per term for three terms per year with the summer break commencing in July. Yorkville University admits students four times a year – in January, April, July and October.  Students starting in October would qualify for their three-month summer break in July of the following year. All students qualify for an approved break after completion of 30 credits regardless of their intake date. The approved break runs from July to September. Students who are interested in accelerating their studies and taking courses during the summer break are welcome to do so depending on course availability. 

International Students must be registered in and complete a minimum of 3-4 courses (per academic term) per year to meet the requirements for full time study status.

Students may apply to take one ‘approved term break’ after they have completed 30 credits of full time study.

Students may use their ‘approved term break’ to register for a lighter course load (less than 3 courses) in this term.

Note: International students in Canada with a study permit will need to complete the majority of their courses on-campus.  These international students must maintain a full-time course load, with the majority of their courses completed on-campus, per term, and satisfy all other requirements as set out by the Federal Government of Canada in order to be eligible to apply for the Post Graduation Work Permit Program.
