Business Administration

At Lakehead University, we're definitely not Business as usual.

Fewer than 5% of business programs worldwide have been accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) – and Lakehead University’s Thunder Bay Campus is one of them.
AACSB Accredited - Lakehead University Business

AACSB certification

Our Faculty of Business Administration's Thunder Bay campus has joined the ranks of elite business schools by earning its AACSB certification.
This globally-recognized hallmark of excellence guarantees a challenging and relevant curriculum delivered by the most highly-qualified faculty.

Not all business schools are created equal.

Lakehead’s small-class environment balances theoretical learning with practical experience to give our students opportunities not found at other business schools. Lakehead students gain a comprehensive understanding of core business disciplines early on before specializing in a field of study – empowering them to succeed on their own terms.
