B.Comm. Employment Statistics

Each year, statistical employment information is gathered on our undergraduate and MBA programs and published in aggregate form. Edwards Career Services tracks all of our graduates up to six months post graduation. For our B.Comm program, the current year statistics will be published by early December. For the MBA program, statistics will be published in May of the following year.

Employers can find more demographic information on the University's Student Headcount and Demographics page.
