Program Overview

Developed to address the evolving needs of today’s most innovative employers, the Master of Management (MM) curriculum provides you with a vital grounding in a broad spectrum of business and management disciplines, from accounting to finance and marketing to strategic management.

"The real value of business school is learning to work with people, learning to present yourself, and learning to look at problems and businesses strategically."
- Cidnee Vaykovich, UBC MM Class of 2014


The MM modules provide a comprehensive, broad-based management education that gives you in-depth business expertise across a range of key business subject areas. Topics include: strategic management, finance, managerial accounting, marketing, entrepreneurship, organizational behaviour and human resources, information technology, supply chain management, and operations and logistics.

 Community Business Project

From January to May, the Community Business Project allows you to engage, collaborate and network with local businesses on group projects as you apply your classroom knowledge to real-world scenarios. The Community Business Project is a 1.5 credit course that provides an opportunity for you to put your business skills to work on community-enhancing projects such as business planning, market expansion, community planning, and environmental sustainability initiatives. This section of the program gives you the real-world, practical business experience you need to make employers sit up and take notice.
