Review our commitment
We are committed to building a culture of inclusion - one where students’ vision and leadership are celebrated.
Through our admissions process, we curate a cohort with a variety of viewpoints and academic, professional and personal experiences. We welcome all applications to our PMBA program. In assessing and prioritizing applications and building each cohort, we strive for diversity and assess your candidacy through the following domains:
Your previous education: we examine your area of study and levels of degrees, specialized professional training and certifications attained.
Your professional experience: we consider the types of organizations/industries you’ve worked in and the specific roles you’ve held.
Your volunteer/community/advocacy/activism experience: we look at the ways in which you have contributed to the betterment of your community and society at large.
Your geographic regions of academic and professional experience: we take into account the location in the world where you have studied or worked.
Your motivation: we assess your unique contributions, managerial and leadership potential, maturity, ambition, drive, alignment with UBC Sauder values and how realistic your career goals are through your essay questions, resume, professional references and interview.
Your program & career knowledge: we assess the depth of your understanding of the program and career to which you aspire.
Review the requirements
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and are reviewed holistically. Meeting the minimum does not guarantee your admission into the UBC PMBA. Further, competitive requirements may change within one admissions cycle from deadline to deadline, depending on how many seats are left in the cohort, the composition of the applicant pool, and the composition of the cohort to date.
