Commerce

Find out what bulls and bears are. Understand why stocks rise or fall. Learn what makes great advertising. Or realize what it takes to run a business. The Commerce profile prepares students for careers in accounting, consulting, finance, human resources, international business, law or marketing.

The Commerce profile is part of the Social Science program, a two-year, pre-university program.  As a result, Commerce students receive the excellent background in critical thinking and methodology that the Marianopolis Social Science program provides. This program will appeal to students fascinated by human society: its origin, functioning, institutions, as well as the interpersonal relationships of individuals within society -- in particular, students who want an excellent preparation for university studies in any business-oriented program or a career in accounting, finance or marketing.

WHO SHOULD TAKE IT?

Taking the Marianopolis Commerce profile is excellent preparation for a career in accounting, finance, marketing, international business or law.
