The combined degree programs are administered on behalf of the Richard Ivey School of Business and the Don Wright Faculty of Music.
The combined program is a five-year program leading to a Bachelor of Arts with Major in Music and a Bachelor of Arts in Honors Business Administration (HBA). In Years 1 and 2, students are registered in the BA (Major in Music) in the Don Wright Faculty of Music and follow the normal curriculum for this degree. In Year 3, students are registered in the HBA program. Students are registered in the combined program in Years 4 and 5.
Students must meet normal admission requirements for both programs. Normally, students apply to the HBA program during their second year in the Bachelor of Arts (Music Major). Students applying to the Ivey Business School's Academic Excellence Opportunity (AEO) are also eligible to be considered for the combined program. Admission is competitive and limited.
To be eligible for consideration for admission to the combined program, in the first two years, students must complete all requirements for years one and two of the Bachelor of Arts (Music Major), including Business Administration 2257. In the first two years, students must attain a minimum weighted average of 78%, a minimum mark of 70% in Business Administration 2257, and no mark less than 60%. They must also gain admission to the HBA program through the regular application process.
