Empowering students for career success
The Hari B. Varshney Business Career Centre (BCC) bridges the gap between UBC Sauder’s students and the business world. You will have access to mentorship programs, exclusive company panels, valuable industry insights and much more.
You will be assigned your own professional career coach. Your relationship begins at orientation, continues throughout your time at UBC Sauder, and carries into your future career. You’ll get one-on-one advice and support to develop your professional brand, explore your career options and make powerful connections with employers.
The first step in developing any successful career is to get a clear understanding of your strengths, aptitudes and aspirations. We provide you with access to self-assessment tools that will help you clarify your career direction. Throughout the program, coaches will help you develop and work through a personalized career development plan.
Get hands-on experience pursuing an internship, entrepreneurial project or industry project where you can bring cutting-edge knowledge to real-world business problems. You will also be given the opportunity to apply your classroom learning in business clinics, case competitions and on the Global Immersion Experience program.
