how beneficial is a double degree?

A photo of student92 student92
Still debating whether or not to pursue in the laurier bba/computing double degree. How much more beneficial would it be in the long run to have that extra degree?

Because the DD gives me no elective credits whatsoever and I don't know whether or not I will enjoy the computing courses.

Drop it if you don't enjoy programming plus math, cause basically all DD degrees require a lot of math courses to be taken...

So If you don't enjoy math+programming, I'd suggest you just go for the regular BBA degree.

Emailed the chair of physics and computer science department:

hi ... students usually take a mix of jobs:
- an analyst or finance position at a banking or investment company, i.e. Goldman Sachs, TD Waterhouse
- a 'specialist' job, e.g. students interested in technical marketing have worked for CocaCola, Bell Canada, Ontario Gaming Corp
- and typically at least two terms at a high tech company.

As KW is very rich in technology companies, large firms such as RIM, OpenText, Sandvine, Sybase, etc. are popular; RIM and Sandvine, in particular, are popular with CCE students as they manufacture a physical product. KW has a lot of start-ups and last term one of our students worked with 17 muscles. Last term, the startups at the Hub (accelerator centre for digital media) had a evening mixer at a local bar to meet students that might be interested in working with them - bring your resume and network evening.

Students also work in Toronto for tech firms such as IBM, Microsoft, Hewlett Packard, etc.

Interpret it as you wish.
