Wondering what courses to register for in your first year?

We're happy to welcome you to our program! First-year Grenfell Business students should register for these five recommended courses in the first term: BUSN 1010, ECON 1010, ENGL 1000 (or equivalent), MATH 1052, and any one non-Business elective (this is your choice so look for courses you are interested in outside of Business).
