Recent developments in the global economy have created challenges for the mining and resource sectors. These challenges have had far reaching effects which include limited student enrollment in UBC’s EMBA in Strategic Mining Management, which was to be launched September 2015.
The number of confirmed students in the program is not sufficient to go forward. Consequently, we have decided to defer the launch of the program until the sector is able to make the necessary investments in professional education. We will work closely with industry to identify the ideal moment to return to market.
The Sauder School of Business and the Norman B. Keevil Institute of Mining Engineering are extremely proud of the EMBA in Strategic Mining Management and the partnership with industry leaders that allowed it to be developed. It is an extraordinarily innovative degree and we very much look forward to greeting the first cohort of students when the program launches.
In the meantime, the Sauder School and Keevil will continue to work with sector leaders and to perfect the program. It was created in partnership with the mining industry to foster the next generation of leaders for the sector. And, when the sector is ready, we will be there to meet this challenge together.
Designed exclusively for the mining industry, this first-of-its-kind executive business degree was developed in consultation with mining professionals for mining professionals. The new EMBA in Strategic Mining Management harnesses the world-renowned expertise in business education of the Sauder School of Business and North America’s largest and most advanced centre for mining engineering education and research, the Keevil Institute of Mining Engineering, to train highly skilled executives in the fields of Operations Management and Executive Management.
Why an EMBA in Strategic Mining Management?
Choosing to do the UBC Executive MBA in Strategic Mining Management is a life-changing decision. And like other big changes in life, there are many factors to be considered.
