About the CUS
From its inception over seventy years ago, the Commerce Undergraduate Society has played a pivotal role in shaping the success of Bachelor of Commerce students at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. The growth of social and professional opportunities in the CUS is a source of inspiration for all student societies in Canada.
The Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration at UBC was renamed the Sauder School of Business in 2004 under the tenure of Dean Dan Muzyka. Since that time, the commerce faculty has developed an international reputation for its sophisticated learning atmosphere and the CUS has evolved significantly alongside it.
The Commerce Undergraduate Society is the largest business school organization in Canada, both in terms of its $1.2 million annual operating budget and its thousands of actively-involved students within the society. With the money that it collects through student fees, the CUS is able to support its members through a range of services and clubs that cater to some variation of the personal, professional or academic success of its students. The CUS houses tutoring services, social functions and large-scale conferences that offer insights into possible careers and numerous networking opportunities with industry professionals.
If you are a student at Sauder, make sure that you take advantage of what the CUS offers. For some, this will be as little as filling up a free cup of coffee in the student lounge or going on the annual ski trip. For others, it will mean joining a club and going to workshops on the specialization that the club is focused on. For others still, it will mean filling a position and gaining extremely valuable work experience. Whatever the case may be, everyone in the CUS is afforded equal rights; there will always be a wealth of opportunity for you here if you want it.
