Program Description

Leverage The Global Economy

We are all global citizens with a stake in the economic issues that have become an integral part of our daily lives. From the local economies that drive our national industries, to the complex nature of free trade between countries, Cape Breton Island offers a unique glimpse into the fluid world of economics.

As a social science concerned with the efficient use of resources in production, exchange and consumption, students from dozens of countries arrive here to gain a better understanding of how local and global economies thrive. They end up graduating with the confidence and knowledge they need to enter the professional world of economics.

Economics professors at CBU are dedicated and engaged professionals who stay on top of developments in the global economy. This gives students an up-to-date flow of knowledge regarding the creation and distribution of wealth, labour disputes, unemployment, inflation, taxes, oil prices and international trade. And that’s just to start. Our modern facilities and comprehensive curriculum ensure you have what you need to achieve true economic success in the real world.

Admission Description

n overall average of 65% is required for all students applying to most CBU credit programs based on high school performance. Additional requirements may apply to specific programs.

If space permits, CBU will accept all candidates who can verify that they have met the minimum entry requirements established by CBU for the programs in which they wish to enroll.

Note: CBU does not guarantee that applications completed after August 1, will be processed for September registration.

Admission Paths

Students may enter Cape Breton University by any of three paths, subject to restrictions of space and program capacity.

  1. High school graduates who satisfy the admission requirements of their chosen program.
  2. Students who transfer from another post-secondary institution and who are in good standing at that institution and who satisfy the admission requirements for their chosen program. Transfer students may be able to obtain credit in their CBU programs for courses taken elsewhere.
  3. Students may also be admitted as non-traditional learners.

Students who enter CBU through any of the above paths and who have not made a final decision in a program may register as students in No Specific Program.

Applicants will be required to submit official documents (e.g. transcripts from other institutions) when they apply for admission. Normally these documents are sent directly from the other institutions to CBU.

Students will also require the approval of the relevant School Dean to register at another university or college while attending CBU.
