BCom online learning and support

Online experience

In order to protect the health and safety of students, faculty, and staff during the global pandemic, UBC Sauder will deliver 2020 Winter Term 1 (September to December) and Term 2 (January to April) courses in a fully online format. Student support staff in the Undergraduate Office (UGO)Hari B. Varshney Business Career Centre (BCC)Canaccord Learning Commons (CLC) and David Lam Management Research Library (DLAM) will continue to support BCom students through virtual programming and services.

We have been working hard to ensure that your online experience will be a positive one. We will be delivering both synchronous and asynchronous online learning to accommodate students that live in different time zones.
