Overview

Bachelor of Bio-Resource Management in Equine Management - Optional Co-op

The major in Equine Management focuses on the development of leaders with a genuine regard for all horses and their well-being, a conscious concern for the environment, and a passionate interest in all aspects of the horse industry. The program combines a solid background in business, biological sciences and equine management through practical and theoretical experience. It provides in-depth understanding of the economic, environmental and social dimensions of all equine disciplines with a broad and current knowledge of horse industry issues and develops the skills to gather, access, interpret and apply industry data. In consultation with the faculty advisor, students can participate in international exchange or semester abroad opportunities in semester 6. Students can also incorporate a variety of field trips, experiential learning in the workplace and independent research projects into their program.

The Bachelor of Bio-Resource Management (B.B.R.M) program is Canada's first degree program to offer a specialization in equine management. The unique program combines learning the biology, physiology and behavior of horses with developing competencies in handling horses and knowledge of the economic and managerial aspects of the equine industry. It features a hands-on approach to managing horses and provides a solid foundation in business principles and ethics with a focus on the environment and sustainability.

Graduating students will be prepared for a broad range of leadership and managerial positions in the industry. Students can also take this major as an entry point to the field of veterinary medicine.
