    Course Summary

    There is a substantial degree of overlap in the business world and the field of Computer Science. Not only do commercial organisations in almost every industry and economic sector spend millions each year turning the latest developments in computer science into new services and business processes, even Software Engineering and IT departments need trained managers to lead them from within. 

    The University of British Columbia’s Bachelors of Commerce (BCom) program in Business and Computer Science not only conveys the technical skills you’ll need to apply IT and coding advances to business, it will give you the commercial, management and leadership skills you need to manage a small team, a whole department r an IT consultancy. 

    This program is delivered jointly by the Department of Computer Science and by the Saunder School of Business. Both teams work together to give students a solid understanding of computer technology, information management strategies and essential business processes.

Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market.
