The Quantitative Methods Preparation Course

The demanding nature of the UBC DAP curriculum requires that students have a working knowledge of business mathematics including arithmetic and basic algebra; ratios, proportions and percentages; linear systems and graphing linear equations. The Quantitative Methods Preparatory Course (QM Prep), offered online prior to the commencement of classes in January, May and September each year is designed to help students with limited or no experience in math or accounting acquire the quantitative skills necessary to be successful in the Program. Offered at a cost of $150, QM Prep can be completed in 10 to 15 hours.
