Students in Fanshawe's three-year Business Administration - Accounting and Marketing programs who meet all grade requirements are eligible to receive articulation credit to complete a three-year Bachelor of Commerce degree through Nipissing. Students will complete the program in 12 months on-site at Fanshawe College.
