Minors and concentrations
A minor is an optional component of your BCom program that requires completion of at least 18 credits of upper level courses in a single subject area outside of Commerce. The courses taken for a minor are counted toward elective requirements in the BCom degree.
A concentration is an optional set of related courses beyond your core degree requirements, separate from your option. The 12 credits taken for a concentration are counted toward elective requirements in the BCom degree.
Minor in Commerce
Enrolled in another degree program at UBC? Learn the fundamentals of business by taking 9 to 18 credits of upper level Commerce courses (requirements vary by Faculty). Flexible course delivery options and summer sections allow minor requirements to fit within the schedule of your primary field of study.
