BBA is for management type jobs, while BCom is more general, such as accountants

I don't really understand what "management" is in the first place.
You go into a career based on your major (finance, accounting, marketing, hr, etc) and then work your up to become a manager after several years. That's the path that I have understood.
I had never heard anyone become a manager straight out of university, unless it's something like fast food.

I really think management is a misnomer, they should just call it business and leave it at that.

Ditto with Business 'administration.'

That is incorrect. BCom and BBA are pretty much the same things. Look at the course structure and curriculum and you'll see that a Queen's BCom and a Schulich iBBA are very similar. Both have similar courses - econ, etc, and both have the same rigour of international course elements in them.

By doing commerce, you can into various functional jobs. Here are a few of them...
- Marketing
- Consulting (including Management Consulting)
- Finance
- Accounting
- Human Resources

Most recently, "Management Consulting" is becoming a broad factor where you look at all aspects of the business, from finances to marketing strategies to operational procedures, and find a way to leverage them.

Also, some commerce grads continue onto Law or Masters of Public Administration or other graduate topics to further their studies.

Hope that helps.
