Program Admission

WELCOME to the DAN Department of Management & Organizational Studies at Western University.

DAN Management offers the most flexible approach to management education in Canada. It provides a unique opportunity to combine a strong foundation in one of our core areas of business education with a broader educational perspective from the Social Sciences and other disciplines. This interdisciplinary approach to management education offers six major areas of business study (Accounting, Commercial Aviation Management, Consumer Behavior,  Finance, Human Resource Management, and Public Administration) with two degree options: Honors Specialization, Specialization, and Honors Double Major (combining in a BMOS major with another discipline at Western).  The Bachelor of Management and Organizational Studies (BMOS) degree provides our graduates with core business skills and the flexibility to pursue broader educational interests, which we believe prepares them for a rapidly changing global management environment.
