Experiential Learning

The UBC MBA heightens your job readiness and marketability by enabling you to apply what you learn before you graduate. You'll enhance your theoretical knowledge with practical experience through case studies, problem-based learning, and in your final year of study, an industry or entrepreneurial project that showcases your creativity.

Industry project

Working under the direction of a faculty advisor, you'll demonstrate your abilities and ambition by tackling a difficult issue in your current workplace or focusing on an area of business that interests you. Past examples include:

  • Market Opportunity of Using Liquefied Natural Gas as the Diesel Substitute Fuel
  • Research into the Norwegian Fisheries Management
  • Industry Analysis Examining Residential Real Estate Trends
  • Advisory Services to a Float Plane Operator

Entrepreneurial project

With a new product or service in mind, you'll bring cutting-edge knowledge and innovation to its development. You will tap into UBC-wide resources and the West Coast entrepreneurship culture to drive your new venture idea from prototype to market launch.
