UBC to launch new undergrad program on global economics


The University of B.C. has announced it will launch a new undergraduate degree program for students interested in studying global economic issues.

UBC plans to expand its economics department to create the new Vancouver School of Economics and begin offering a four-year Bachelor of International Economics degree.

The expansion will add more than 300 spaces for economics students and bring in around 10 academics, UBC said in a news release today (December 5).

Annual tuition fees for domestic students will be $7,672 and for international students they will be $27,731.

The new program is slated to start in September 2013.

UBC = crap degrees
Great, just what the world needs, more economists - how about engineers who build things and doctors who save lives?

I forgot, these degrees require people with brains.

there should be a class on Vancouver's economy and people would learn 80% of Vancouver's economy is based on marijuana and pizza by the slice
