Laurier Single Degree BBA vs Laurier Double Degree BBA/Fin Math

A photo of kevinlien kevinlien
Recently just got accepted to the DD BBA/Fin Math at Laurier, but I'm seriously reconsidering switching out to the regular BBA because of the intensity I'm hearing about the DD. Seems like math's crazy and the workloads going to be ridiculous. However, the co-op guaranteed is an option I'd like to keep.. Wondering if it's worth it to switch to BBA, and take the risk of co-op.. or to man up and do DD?

EDIT: Also, I'm considering of applying to Ivey second year, and wondering if its possible with DD, and/or BBA?

You can always drop from DD to BBA- quite easily.

Yep. Source: current Laurier students. I'm sure at some point it may get more difficult, but supposedly it's easy. BBA -> DD would be tough.

Point one: the Double-Degree program is excellent and will look great if you choose to pursue a math-intensive career later on (such as that of a CFA). The BMath degree will, however, look better for those jobs.

Point two: due to the spread-out workload of the DD programs, it will likely be easier to transfer from a simple BBA to Ivey in your third year (and likely impossible from the DD).

Like johnnycanuck said, you can always drop out.
Are you sure you're talking about the right DD program? The DD with Waterloo in Math/Business from Laurier is notoriously known for being difficult, because of the math, but I haven't heard that there was much difficulty about the BBA/BA at Laurier.
