Unique Advantage

With a UBC MBA your education starts in the classroom and extends for beyond.

Our partnerships with academia and industry around the world offer transformative opportunities. Among these are the Global Immersion Experience, which gives you global consulting experience and a dual degree option where you'll gain an MBA from UBC Sauder and Master of Advanced Management (MAM) from the Yale School of Management. There are also opportunities for you to learn around the world, thanks to our partnership with the Global Network for Advanced Management.

Often cited as the best part of the UBC MBA, the mandatory Global Immersion Experience gives you the opportunity to consult on business problems during two weeks abroad. Destinations change each year. In 2016, our candidates traveled to England, Chile, Japan and India.

Before you reach your destination

You’ll begin preparing for the experience on campus, designing briefs and doing research for a pre-selected company.

Once abroad

You’ll work with and present your group’s recommendations to the company’s management team. It's an invaluable experience that will help you understand the cultural implications of – and different approaches to – making business decisions.
