About MRU

Founded in 1910 and located in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, Mount Royal University grew into a vibrant college in the 1930s and became a mid-sized university in 2009. Today, Mount Royal offers 14 bachelor degrees and 38 majors, along with a wide range of diploma and certificate options. We boast a diverse community with nearly 16,000 credit students, more than 5,500 non- credit students and about 1,700 employees.

Mount Royal is located in the traditional territories of the Niitsitapi (Blackfoot) and the people of the Treaty 7 region in Southern Alberta, which includes the Siksika, the Piikani, the Kainai, the Tsuut'ina, and the Iyarhe Nakoda. The City of Calgary is also home to the Métis Nation.

A student-focused undergraduate university built on teaching excellence, we are known for our top-calibre programs, high-quality teaching and learning experience, robust delivery of liberal education, scholarly teaching, experiential learning and undergraduate research. Learn more at

We are committed to removing barriers and fostering the inclusion of voices that have been historically underrepresented or discouraged in our society. In support of our belief that diversity in our faculty and staff enriches the work, learning and research experiences for the entire campus community, we strongly encourage members of the designated groups (women, Indigenous Peoples, persons with disabilities, members of visible minorities, and diverse sexual orientation and gender identities) to apply and self-identify.

About the Faculty of Business and Communication Studies

The Faculty of Business and Communications Studies (FBCS) is composed of the EFMD Global accredited Bissett School of Business and the School of Communication Studies and has a student body of approximately 3400 students. The Bissett School of Business hosts four departments: General Management & Human Resources; Accounting & Finance; International Business, Supply Chain Management & Aviation; and Entrepreneurship, Marketing & Social Innovation. The School of Communication Studies consists of four departments: Public Relations, Information Design, Broadcast Media Studies, and Journalism.

The Bissett School of Business offers education in all major areas of management and business administration, including degrees, certificates, and a diploma in aviation. The school has dedicated itself to providing an education that is at the leading edge of global business trends and community relevance.

The Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) program is designed to prepare students to be successful in the commercial, nonprofit, and public sectors of the Canadian and global economy while being engaged citizens in their communities. The BBA is primarily designed to prepare students for immediate employment upon graduation. The BBA may also be considered sufficient preparation for admission to appropriate and relevant professional accreditation programs as well as graduate degrees offered by many Canadian and international universities.

BBA students will have the opportunity to specialize in one of four majors, including Accounting, Human Resources, and Marketing. We also offer a General Management major which allows students to specialize in other fields of business, including Financial Analysis, Financial Services, Innovation and Entrepreneurship, International Business, Social Innovation and Supply Chain Management. Students may also use the General Management major to pursue minors in areas of study offered outside of the Bissett School of Business.
