The Faculty of Management at UBC’s Okanagan campus is taking action on student concerns about changes to three accounting elective courses.
On Monday, Bachelor of Management students were told that, starting in September, the Faculty will not deliver in-house three of the eight fourth-year accounting subjects for students interested in pursuing Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) designation after graduation.
“I realize there has been some confusion,” said Deborah Buszard, Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Principal of the Okanagan campus. “I want students to know that they can still earn all the CPA prerequisites and count them as credits toward the Bachelor of Management degree.
“We’re looking within UBC and externally at other ways to provide these courses to our students,” said Buszard. “We are committed to meeting our students’ needs.”
