The UBC MBA Experience

The 16-month, full-time MBA program at UBC Sauder's Robert H. Lee Graduate School empowers candidates to embrace challenge and change their lives and businesses for the better. Challenged to strategize like a CEO, graduates move on to leadership positions in Vancouver and around the world, realizing their personal and professional potential.

Our mandatory Global Immersion Experience (GIE) allows each of our full-time MBA candidates to spend 2-weeks abroad, getting the opportunity to consult on business problems for local organizations. They begin preparing for the experience on campus before they depart, designing briefs and doing research. It's an invaluable experience that helps students understand cultural implications of business decisions and adapting to different ways of doing things.

Blooming Soyinka

Africa Blooms

Blooming Soyinka thinks big. So big, in fact, her international background in finance and accounting wasn’t going to be enough to help her realize her dreams. “That’s why I wanted to do my MBA at UBC Sauder,” says the MasterCard Foundation Scholarship recipient and founder of Africa Blooms, an e-commerce site that showcases goods made by artisans throughout the African continent. Now, thanks to her MBA, Blooming has completely revolutionized the way she does business, effectively tripling sales.


Jordan Cash

Cartems Donuterie

“I love making things better. I’m never satisfied with the current state of things.” Jordan Cash had a dream that he owned a donut shop. All he needed was the business acumen to complement his entrepreneurial spirit. Through the courses he took and projects he explored in the UBC MBA program, Jordan built the foundation for Cartems Donuterie, which is now a rapidly expanding brand. “There isn’t a day that goes by that I’m not thinking about marketing or operations, and thinking about what I learned at UBC Sauder,” he says.


Kerry Costello

COO, Co-Founder
HeadCheck Health

Kerry Costello has been active in sports for decades. She’s been an athlete, a coach, and now: a tech innovator. “At UBC Sauder I discovered my passion for sports medicine tech,” she says. A co-founder of HeadCheck Health, Kerry is developing an app that helps assess concussions in athletes, right on the sidelines. It’s being touted as a game-changer. “We’ve developed a way to objectively measure balance,” she says. “Reliability is higher than 91 per cent, a lot higher than the subjective methods being used in the past.”
