Applying to Commerce Programs

Undergraduate Commerce Programs

Entry to business school programs (such as the Ivey HBA and Queen’s Commerce programs in Canada and prestigious colleges in the U.S.) can be extremely competitive. Gaining admission often requires a written application in addition to an impressive profile.  

Since many applicants are accomplished high school students with stellar grade and extracurricular activities, it is essential that the admissions committee gains an accurate picture of your background and abilities.  Conveying this information to the admissions committee in a clear and convincing manner will put you in the most advantageous position relative to your competition.
