It is with great sadness that the UBC Sauder School of Business shares the news that Senior Instructor Steve Alisharan, a leading presence at the school for more than 30 years, passed away on September 26, 2016.
As September approaches, thousands of new students will flood the halls of the UBC Sauder School of Business to begin their education. Below, three incoming students share their already-impressive accomplishments and how UBC Sauder will help each of them accomplish their future goals.
Athlete Jamie Broder is competing in the 2016 Rio Olympic Games but thanks to her BCom she’s also taking care of her long-term future with a budding career in finance.
Last Fall, UBC Sauder BCom candidate Joseph Lee turned down job interviews with Silicon Valley firms – which wasn’t easy, “they don’t come along too often,” he says. Why? Lee was holding out for his dream opportunity: A place on Canada’s Next 36, an eight-month program that accelerates the growth of Canada’s most talented entrepreneurs. He saw this as the ideal opportunity to develop his business Coastline, which he co-founded while at UBC Sauder in 2015, into a market leader.
We invite you to join Brian Wong, UBC Sauder alumnus, co-founder and CEO of Kiip, and the author of The Cheat Code as he walks us through some of his shortcuts to get a leg up on the competition, garner attention for ourselves and our ideas, and accelerate our success.
