The Business & Society [BUSO] program is an interdisciplinary liberal arts degree program which provides students with the tools needed to study the relationship between business, the economy and society.
Students enrolled in the program will undertake this study through a multi-disciplinary approach, using texts from philosophy, economics, geography, sociology and political science, to name a few.
The program is structured around 4 (four) core courses and 6 (six) specialized streams. Within the BUSO core courses, capitalist business practices are critically examined and a variety of responses and alternatives to these impacts are evaluated.
