To address concerns like those Nina faced, the evolved Professional MBA program considers how to better balance travel for school with the demands of working full-time.
For example, candidates have the opportunity to take part in global learning over the course of one intensive week, through UBC Sauder’s membership in the Global Network for Advanced Management. GNAM, as it’s known, is a consortium of 29 schools around the world, spearheaded by the Yale School of Management, that offer Professional MBA candidates unparalleled learning opportunities.
“GNAM gives you world-class content, like sustainability at UBC Sauder or behavioural economics at Yale, over the course of one rigourous week,” says Darren Dahl, Director of UBC Sauder’s Robert H. Lee Graduate School.
“Candidates can get international experience and gain a global business viewpoint in a period of time that can be easily managed. And with optimized hours spent in the classroom and additional time off, students can spend less time worrying about what they’re missing at home and more time investing in the experience.”
