Lifelong Learning Plan
The Lifelong Learning Plan is a Government of Canada initiative that allows individuals to use RRSP savings towards the cost of their education. Information on this program is available from Canada Customs & Revenue Agency.
During the months of June, July and August, UBC MBA students are required to participate in an 8 - 16 week internship or complete an industry project. In 2010, 95% of MBA students acquired an internship. Paid internships average from $3500 to $5000 CAD per month.
Teaching Assistants/Research Assistants
MBA students do not normally assume the roles of Teaching or Research Assistants. These roles are usually occupied by MSc and PhD students in the Sauder School of Business.
Part-Time Work Opportunities
UBC MBA students are not encouraged to work part-time during the program owing to the large time commitment required for classes, group work and individual study. Some students continue to work part-time for their internship company during the final fall of the program.
