The 28-month Part-time UBC MBA at UBC Sauder's Robert H. Lee Graduate School is as challenging as it is rewarding. Classes and exams are delivered through intensive weekend sessions at UBC’s Point Grey campus, approximately every two to three weeks. Combining this with additional course work outside these weekends, plus your day job, requires dedication and commitment. However, the big rewards reveal themselves throughout the program:
- Gain a broad spectrum of knowledge in every aspect of business.
- Immediately apply what you learn in your job – be it a presentation, brief, or budget strategy.
- Challenge yourself and develop your personal leadership style.
