UBC B+MM Dual Degree

Curriculum

Study what you love

Earn 2 degrees concurrently in 4 1/2 years and study alongside students from a variety of undergraduate backgrounds. With the B+MM Dual Degree, you'll study your desired Bachelors degree, along with a variety of Commerce courses that will teach you how to market your ideas, understand how to deliver products and services, and effectively build a successful career with practical knowledge.

How it works

For the first four years of your undergraduate journey, you work on your non-Commerce undergraduate degree while also taking business courses; the 6 credits of business courses you take in Years 3 & 4 count towards your Master of Management. After finishing your undergraduate degree, you will focus on Master of Management courses for 6 months, and you’ll graduate with both a Bachelor’s and a world-ranked Master’s degree from UBC Sauder’s Robert H. Lee Graduate School.
