Support Priority Project: Student Awards

Investing in future business and thought leaders

UBC Sauder students are tomorrow’s leaders, entrepreneurs, problem solvers, decision makers and global citizens.

Student awards help make many of their accomplishments possible. Awards in the form of scholarships, bursaries, fellowships, prizes and service awards enable students to reach higher, lead and contribute while achieving their academic goals.

The UBC Sauder School of Business is increasing MBA scholarships to attract the most promising students and to become an MBA of choice for the next generation of business leaders. The total UBC MBA tuition and program fees amount to approximately $50,000 CAD, less than half the cost of many comparable elite MBA programs in the top 100 Financial Times Global MBA Ranking. However, completing a MBA degree is a major investment for any student and prohibitive to some.

To ensure that all prospective students who meet our competitive admissions standards are able to pursue the UBC MBA regardless of their financial situation, we offer MBA scholarships ranging up to $40,000.

Scholarships can provide an opportunity for you to align your support with your personal interests while providing vital encouragement to students.


Establish an Entrance Scholarship – Ranging from $10,000 to $40,000, MBA entrance scholarships are awarded based on a student’s prior business and academic achievements.


Create a Targeted Award – Scholarships of $5,000 and up can be awarded based on a predetermined set of criteria, such as women’s leadership in business, a particular field of study, an intended career path, international students, etc.

Donors who choose to create scholarships are celebrated for your generosity in helping award recipients to start and, most importantly, finish the UBC MBA program. Your contribution will also help UBC Sauder attract top talent from around the world—future leaders who will generate innovative ideas, guide new management thinking and cultivate strong global partnerships.
