Hosted by the Associates of the Asper School of Business, the Bachelor of Commerce Luncheon is your official welcome to the Asper School of Business and a celebration of an important milestone: the beginning of your business career.

Here's what to expect:

• You'll meet local business leaders, fellow students and profs, and inspiring guest speakers.
• You'll start building your professional network and make connections that open doors to incredible opportunities -- before your first day of classes.
• You'll receive the traditional Asper Pin that singles you out as a member of the prestigious Asper community.

Important information about the BComm Luncheon:

• You'll receive an invitation from UMConnect in late July.
• Use the information provided in your invitation to RSVP for the luncheon online.
• Arrive at the luncheon before 11:15 a.m.

This event is for first-year students only, so you are unable to bring guests. But that's okay - you'll be too busy making friends and building connections to mind.

This is a business event so, you will want to suit up and bring your table manners. Need some pointers? We're here to help! Check out the Frequently Asked Questions page.
