How to apply to the UBC MBA


Applications for the UBC Full-time MBA August 2021 intake are now open.

We ask that you upload all supporting documents to your application in our online portal. We will continue to accept official documents via mail, but given that there could be mail processing delays, please mail us the physical copies as soon as possible. By uploading your required documents to our portal, we will be able to continue to review your application.  If you have any other questions, or need assistance with completing your application, please reach out to us at

UBC MBA admits on a rolling basis, meaning that we process applications as soon as they are received. If you are applying for a dual degree program, be sure to take note of all the related deadlines for each program. International students are encouraged to apply early, as it takes extra time to process study permits. Once we receive your application, you will automatically be considered for scholarships. However, to qualify, you must meet the merit requirements and apply by the application deadlines specified on the Scholarships, awards and financial assistance page.
