Business/ Computer Science joint programs?

A photo of SHAZYZANG SHAZYZANG
I'm hoping to get into a program with a combined major or dual degree with these two, what are some places that offer this? I've found these:

UBC- Combined major with BCom (Where I'm hoping to go)
Laurier and Waterloo- Honours BBA and Honours BSc, 5 years with co-op (second choice)
UCalgary- BCom and BSc, 5-years (I don't have the required science classes so no dice)
Western- HBA and BSc, 5 years (Ivey is too pricey for me so this is no dice too)

This is a program that no one likes. It gets little respect from employers, and there's about 5 people left in it from the first class. Avoid at all costs.

Ouch, really? I thought CFM was a decent alternative to CS/BBA.

Are you sure you're not thinking of Computational Mathematics?

No, it's true. CFM is a middling program really, but it requires fairly high marks to get in and has very expensive tuition.

Yup.

It was the marriage of two different faculties, but because of that it doesn't get the attention it deserves at Waterloo. There are just better options out there, especially given the high entrance reqs.
