Graduates of the BCom program will:

  • have the ability to use interdisciplinary approaches to solve problems and create new business opportunities.

UCW follows professional trends in industry closely and develops elective areas that reflect the best professional standards in specific fields.

  • Business Communications: Communication is an essential component of every organization, whether communicating internally to staff and managers, or externally to customers, stakeholders, or the public. The Business Communications elective area will prepare you to produce effective communications materials for a wide range of contexts and in the framework of business strategy.

In September 2021, UCW received 5 stars rating from the QS Stars higher education rating system, the world’s most popular source of comparative data on university performance. As part of the QS Stars audit process, institutions receive an overall rating of between zero and 5+ stars, as well as a rating in at least eight of 13 key areas.
