Students desiring a stronger foundation in business are encouraged to consider the Minor in Commerce, offered through the UBC Sauder School of Business. In the Minor, students focus their senior specialization credits on commerce courses in organizational behaviour, marketing, business finance and strategic management. This option enables students to develop their business knowledge and management skills, and prepares them for management roles and advanced business degrees.
Interested students must apply in Term 2 of their second year. To be eligible for admission, students must have:
- completed the prescribed courses of the first two years of their degree program with a cumulative average of at least 68%; and
- completed ECON 101 (or ECON 311), ECON 102 (or ECON 312) and one of MATH 100/102/104/180/184
Upon successful completion of the Minor, the notation “Minor in Commerce” will be placed on the student’s transcript.
