Indigenous Bachelor of Management

Overview and Cultural component

At Maskwacis Cultural College (MCC) we are committed to contributing to the emerging success of our graduates in the Canadian and First Nations’ economies by providing a Bachelor of Management degree program that prepares our graduates to be highly effective in the workplace or to continue on to graduate business administration/commerce degree programs at Canada’s leading universities.  The Bachelor of Management (BMgt) degree program is being designed to produce graduates that will be effective in serving the management needs of the four nations in areas of project management, information systems, managerial accounting, marketing, treaty negotiations/mediation, entrepreneurial business, hospitality/tourism, and economic development to name a few. The BMgt program is also comprised of twenty five percent (25 %) of the courses from the Cree language and Culture department at MCC.  Within each of the business and administration courses, MCC’s resident elders are welcome to interact and participate with our students through giving talks and sharing circles.

GOALS OF THE PROGRAM

The goals of The Bachelor of Management degree programs are to prepare graduates that are of the caliber that would address the human resource needs of Maskwacis’ four nations at the organizational management level.  Our program is designed to equip students to:

  1. Continue on to post graduate studies e.g. an MBA program or another post graduate degree program of their choice.
  2. Have the necessary foundation to start a business and access available resources to support their business ventures whether on or off reservation.
  3. Compete in pursuing employment opportunities including entry-level positions in Band offices and businesses throughout the treaty six territory in fields such as gaming, tourism, and hospitality, agri-business, managerial or financial accounting, human resource management, community planning, and economic development to name a few.
