The student and faculty supervisor determine the learning intentions, activities and evaluation strategies for the course. This course is equivalent to a typical 3 credit elective course at the degree level. The learning plan for the individual student should reflect the critical thinking, research and/or quantitative analysis associated with a degree level course. Students may apply this course to the elective requirements of their diploma or degree program. This course may be taken as part of the international field school (https://www.bcit.ca/business/international/fieldschool.shtml ) or exchange program (https://www.bcit.ca/business/international/outgoing.shtml ) for additional credits. In the case of exchange programs where transfer credits will be awarded, the student may take this course for additional credit as long as there are deliverables and learning outcomes in addition to those earned in the exchange program. This course can also allow the student to engage in applied research or field study where the student works with, and is supervised by, faculty and/or other researchers also engaged in a related research agenda or project.
Admission to the Bachelor of Business Administration program and permission from the Program Head. Or Acceptance into International Field School or Exchange Program and permission from the Program Head and supervising faculty member.
