UBC - Sauder to Offer a Joint Bachelor's/Master of Management Program

Students can complete both degrees in 4.5 years

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.

For more information, please see the UBC Bachelor+Master of Management Dual Degree program webpage.
