Our Three Pillars
Over $1.2 million and the collective efforts of student leaders and volunteers from over 600 positions contribute to the improvement of student life in three key aspects; our three pillars. We work to enrich the personal, professional, and academic experiences that our BCom students enjoy throughout their studies at the UBC Sauder School of Business. Offering opportunities in nearly forty unique and diverse Commerce Clubs and student services, the Commerce Undergraduate Society centres it’s efforts on our three pillars.
The personal lives of our students are important to them, and are important to us. With a rich international student body, many of our constituents are thousands of kilometres away from home, and it is our goal to make sure that all students have a place in the Sauder community. From POITS, our celebrated and legendary beer garden, to the SoCo Ski Trip, the Commerce Undergraduate Society plans and hosts hundreds of events to ensure that BCom students will have opportunities to build friendships and families.
From investment bankers on Wall Street to accountants articling here in Vancouver, the Sauder School of Business has alumni in various industries in hundreds of cities around the world. The Commerce Undergraduate Society works to provide networking opportunities, information sessions, and many events to aid in the professional development of our BCom students. Our support is vital to the fantastic TREK programs, and the school’s Business Career Centre is the biggest line item on our budget, year after year.
Making friends and getting jobs may be important when our BComs are at Sauder, our students are all here to learn. The Commerce Undergraduate Society provides opportunities for BComs to explore the academic sides of their specializations, and with the Sauder Business Review, we give students to chance to be published in their field. We also support the academic endeavors of our students, supporting their studies with the Commerce Mentorship Program which provides review sessions for Sauder’s most popular courses.
