Dilemma between UBC economics or UBC Commerce

A photo of ufoate ufoate
Hi guys,

I am stuck in this dilemma. Currently I am in the Bachelor of Arts programme. If I take the Economics degree, I will graduate with an BA economics degree. Is it true that a BA degee is not an employable as a BCom degree? However, I will proceed to year 3 because of the pre-requisites that i have taken. But I will have 1 extra year of work experience over the BCOM option.

If I take the commerce option, I will proceed to year 2 because of the missing pre-requisites. But I will graduate with a BCOM (hopefully in accounting).

Which route is better for me to take? I am studying in UBC and most probably will be accepted to both programmes. Pls advice. :(
