Business students at NRC initially enter into the Business Foundations program for a year without pre-selecting either the BBA or BCom course. After the first year, depending on the major they have chosen (Accounts, Finance, or Marketing), students will continue in the second and third year as either BBA or BCom Students. The total duration of the business courses at NRC is three years.
The first two semesters (1 year) will comprise a common foundation year for both BBA and BCom. The program will prepare students for either course by providing them with necessary skills in IT, language, quantitative analysis, and introducing them to basic functional knowledge, skills, and theoretical foundations of Business.
At the end of the first year, students have the opportunity to select whether they want to continue with a Marketing major (in which case they become BBA students) or with either the Accounts or Finance majors (in which case they become BCom students), for the remaining two years.
