Business Administration (BBA) (Laurier) and Math (BMath) (University of Waterloo) Double Degree


 Waterloo

This is a unique opportunity to learn about business and the applications of mathematics to business while simultaneously earning 2 degrees from 2 universities in 5 years. With this program, you’ll earn a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) from Laurier and a Bachelor of Math (BMath) from the University of Waterloo (UW).

Your courses will cover areas such as pure mathematics, statistics, actuarial science, accounting, brand communication and financial planning. This double-degree program is for students who want an accelerated, challenging program and a competitive advantage in the workforce.

In your senior years, you can choose to specialize in the mathematics or the business side of the program – or both. You’ll also participate in our 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 program.
