UBC revises MBA program

April 24, 2012

UBC's Sauder School of Business announced Monday a revamped MBA program for fall 2012, with an emphasis on hands-on learning, global immersion, and integration of business disciplines for a "360-degree" management perspective. Students will travel to one of Sauder's partner institutions -- Copenhagen School of Business, the India Institute of Management Bangalore, or Shanghai Jiao Tong University -- to work with MBA counterparts on experiential projects for multinational companies. At UBC, students will collaborate with classmates across all business disciplines on projects for organizations in Vancouver and beyond that emphasize applied problem solving and real-world connections. The new MBA has been streamlined from 8 specializations and 10 sub-specializations into 4 career tracks: Business Innovation; Consulting and Strategic Management; Product/Service Management; and Finance.
