The BBA/iBBA Program Committee is responsible for academic policy in Schulich undergraduate programs, which are currently the BBA Program and the iBBA Program.
Matters addressed by the Committee include:
1. Academic Programs and Academic Policies:
- Curriculum reviews and changes
- New undergraduate programs
- New course proposals
- Changes for existing courses, whether substantive or formal (e.g., course number, course title, course description)
- Modifications of academic policies, including exchange program requirements
The Committee’s recommended changes to academic programs and policies are forwarded to the Schulich Faculty Council for final approval and subject, as necessary, to further approvals from the York University Senate.
2. Non-Academic Initiatives:
- Initiatives to promote learning outside the classroom (e.g., events during Reading Week)
- Community-building among students and faculty (e.g., involvement in Frosh Week).
- BBA/iBBA Program Director
Elected Voting Members
- Five Schulich faculty representatives from different areas

The Committee welcomes relevant information and views from various stakeholders in its deliberations and decision-making.
