After graduation, Chan launched the yoga-inspired clothing company Karma Collective, which promotes its products through a tribe of brand ambassadors and gives a portion of its proceeds to community projects.
“The courses I took during my MBA help me with every aspect of running my business – from pricing to marketing strategy to supply chain to accounting,” she says.
“I had never taken any business courses during my undergrad,” she says. “The UBC MBA gave me a foundation in business, and so much more: the friendships, the community, and the ongoing support and mentorship from the school.”
Shortly after launching Karma Collective, Chan moved to Bali, where she now spends her days running her online company and surfing.
“My MBA gave me the courage, confidence and knowledge to step out of my comfort zone,” she says. “Now I’m living steps from the beach, running my own company and doing what I love every day.”
