UBC Sauder School of Business


The UBC Sauder School of Business is Canada's leading academic business school, maintaining an international reputation for excellence in research and learning, and unmatched global partnerships. The faculty has more than 2,700 students in Bachelors, Masters and PhD programs, and boasts over 40,000 alumni in 80 countries.

Located in Vancouver at the University of British Columbia, rated by the Economist Intelligent Unit as the world's top city in its global liveability rankings, the school draws from the internationalism of the city and its Pacific Rim setting to provide an unrivalled global business perspective.

The school is situated in the heart of the spectacular UBC campus, home to forest, ocean and mountain vistas. A second campus, Robson Square, is located in the heart of Vancouver's bustling downtown peninsula.

The business school was renamed the Sauder School of Business in 2003 in recognition of the support and generosity of William Sauder, BCom 1948, Chancellor Emeritus of UBC and former Chairman of Interfor.

UBC Sauder's MBA program offers specialized career tracks combined with practical experience. The program focuses on experimental learning and global immersion. The curriculum, built around experiential learning, builds on five themes: creativity, decision-making, ethics and sustainability, global issues and macroeconomics, and leadership development. Outside the classroom, students will be exposed to international business and gain experience with the Global Immersion Program, and have the chance to choose between one of three career tracks (in Finance, Business Innovation & Entrepreneurship, Product and Service Management), or build a custom career track
