School of Business and Economics

The School of Business and Economics has dedicated itself to the design and delivery of quality educational programs that are “global in perspective, accessible in design” and enable learners to achieve their full potential either in the workplace or further academic study.



The School has evolved over the past 35 years. Starting out as part of a community college, the School now spans the globe with programs and alumni. We have not abandoned our roots and still offer certificate and diploma programs. Yet at the same time we are at the forefront of Canadian business education with the most flexible MBA in Canada.


The School is dedicated to the design and delivery of quality undergraduate and graduate business and economics programs that enable learners to achieve their full potential and be recognized in the workplace and community for their excellence, dedication, and integrity.


Student services

The School of Business and Economics offers an array of services that may be of interest to either prospective or current students. SOBE Student Services also has a staff of skilled academic advisors who can help students with program and course selection; determining a career path after graduation; or information on special program options like service learning, cooperative education, or completing an honours degree.

Campus life

Located in the Sahali area on the city’s southwest slopes, TRU is walking distance from commercial districts and residential areas, and next door to Kamloops’ largest recreational facility, Tournament Capital Centre. A wide variety of outdoor adventures and cultural events are minutes away, year-round.


We view accreditation and the accreditation process as a validation of our quality. Thompson Rivers University was approved as a Candidate for Accreditation in August 2016 by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU).
