The University of British Columbia's Sauder School of Business has announced the launch of a new dual-degree program, where students can receive both a Bachelor's degree and a Master of Management in four and a half years.
Beginning in fall 2015, students in the schools of arts, science, forestry and the kinesiology will be able to pursue the joint-degree program. The business content, according to a statement from the school, is integrated from the beginning of the bachelor's degree. At the end of the program is a six-month long series of courses that cover topics in leadership, marketing, negotiations, operations, and logistics, among others.
Students will also have the opportunity to pursue a "Community Business Project," where they'll work directly with local nonprofit organizations and social enterprises, gaining hands-on business experience.
The dual-degree program will help students gain an understanding of business, which can better prepare them for jobs after graduation, according to the school.
