Greetings and welcome to the Faculty of Business Administration. 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. At both the Orillia and Thunder Bay campuses, our small classes, engaged faculty and staff, and a focus on experiential learning help us create a positive environment that enables students to develop personally and professionally.



Our Faculty of Business Administration's Thunder Bay campus is among the ranks of elite business schools that have achieved certification by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).

AACSB Lakehead

This globally-recognized hallmark of excellence guarantees a challenging and relevant curriculum delivered by the most highly-qualified faculty. Fewer than 5% of business programs worldwide are AACSB-accredited, and Lakehead University’s Thunder Bay Campus is one of them.
