Admission Requirements

This Dual Degree Program is offered pending UBC Board of Governors approval of tuition fees.

Admission to the dual degree program option will be at four entry points during undergraduate program study: first-year direct entry, first year, second year, and third year. First-year direct entry students will be admitted based on university admission standards. Students applying during first year, second year or third year will be admitted based on the continuation requirements, as below. Students applying to the Master of Management Dual Degree Option will not be charged a Master of Management application fee.

Students wishing to apply during their fourth and/or final year of undergraduate study will be considered for admission to the dual degree program option and, if admitted, will first need to complete the required workshops during the next summer term prior to enrolling in MM courses from May-December; therefore must be prepared for a delay in beginning their MM studies.

First-Year Direct Entry

Individuals interested in pursuing the Dual Degree Program Option must first apply to the undergraduate program(s) of their choice following normal application procedures and paying the applicable application fees. Second, they must apply to the Dual Degree Program Option by going to the program website and completing the Dual Degree Program Option application and paying the Master of Management application fee. Students applying to the Dual Degree Program Option for both their first and second choice undergraduate programs will need to complete only one dual degree application for both programs.

Successful applicants will initially be admitted to an undergraduate degree program, with subsequent admission to the Master of Management degree program, upon completion of the continuation requirements outlined below.

Entry During First, Second, or Third Year

First, second, and third year undergraduate students at UBC or transfer applicants applying to UBC in year two or three, may be accepted into the Dual Degree Program Option starting in year two or three of their undergraduate program. Interested students should apply during Term 2 of their second year by going to the website, completing the Dual Degree Program Option application, and paying the Master of Management application fee.

Notes:

  • While students are in the Dual Degree Program Option, they are completing their undergraduate degree and are not considered graduate students.
  • A GMAT or GRE is not an admission requirement of the Dual Degree Program Option.

Continuation Requirements

Students in the Dual Degree Program Option must meet all the continuation requirements for each year of their undergraduate program. Additionally, students must meet the following requirements:

  • First-year: attain an average of at least 65% of all courses attempted in each Winter Session until the student completes first-year and advances to second-year;
  • Second-year to graduation: attain an average of at least 76% of all courses attempted in each Winter Session and Summer Session, calculated at the end of each Academic Year, from advancement to second-year until the student completes all requirements for their undergraduate program.

Students who do not meet the Dual Degree Program Option continuation requirements will be required to withdraw from the Dual Degree Program Option. Students withdrawing from the Dual Degree Program Option will be permitted to continue in their undergraduate program provided they meet the continuation requirements for the undergraduate program. Students who are required to withdraw will be permitted to reapply should their academic performance improve to meet the Dual Degree Program Option continuation requirements.

Students who meet the Dual Degree Program Option continuation requirements through completion of their undergraduate degree and are eligible to graduate will be admitted to the MM program.

Students conferring their undergraduate degrees at the November conferral period will join the cohort the following May. Students will be permitted to take up to one year away from their studies prior to commencing MM coursework.
