Business Administration (BBA) and Computer Science (BSc) Double Degree


 Waterloo

Laurier’s internationally accredited Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree can be combined with our Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Computer Science, providing you with the technical know-how to go along with analytical skills and business expertise. Skills in database and Internet computing are especially valued as marketing diversifies from print and broadcast media to new technologies, and the market is strong for the technically savvy business graduate.

You can earn these 2 degrees in 5 years, all while participating in Canada’s largest business degree co-op program, where you’ll gain 12-16 months of practical work experience.

Note: If you apply and do not meet the requirements for our double-degree program, you’ll automatically be considered for an alternate offer to our Business Administration or Computer Science programs.
