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 Lakehead

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.

Dean David Richards

The Faculty of Business Administration is committed to providing students with rich and varied experiences that help prepare them for meaningful careers. We are continually striving to improve our programs with the introduction of new experiential learning activities within diverse and innovative programs that balance the theoretical and the practical application. Small classes and engaged faculty and staff provide students with an experience that is not found in all business schools. We see engagement with the business communities in northwestern Ontario and Simcoe County and our alumni around the world as a key part of the process.

"Our goal is to provide students with an extraordinary learning experience that provides them with the knowledge and skills needed to achieve their careers goals and become leaders in our communities." - David Richards, Dean, Faculty of Business Administration
