Our student body is internationally diverse. Our faculty is too. This rich mosaic of cultures brings fresh perspectives. From the experiences you’ll have, to the people you’ll learn from, a UBC Sauder education is a global education.
Global Network for Advanced Management
UBC Sauder is the only Canadian school in the Global Network for Advanced Management (GNAM), a prestigious collaboration of 32 graduate schools around the world. While students are not guaranteed a spot in GNAM, those who participate will travel to international universities, tour local businesses and meet with local business experts. Plus, students can take online courses offered by schools in the network.
Opportunities available through our global network:
International Business School Exchanges
Study business at one of our 32 global partner schools around the world. Learn new skills, understand different attitudes and absorb life in another culture. International Exchange is your passport to a global perspective.
Study abroad terms take place at some of the world’s top business schools, with no extra tuition cost. Exposed to a unique international perspective and different approaches to commerce, you’ll develop the skills and confidence to work on the world stage. You’ll also form lifelong friendships and experience the benefit of an expanded global business network that will endure long after graduation.
During exchange, MBA students from schools throughout the world have the opportunity to come to UBC Sauder to take advantage of our strong teaching and research reputation, innovative curriculum, international diversity and spectacular natural setting.
Whether you’re a full-time UBC MBA student at UBC Sauder considering opportunities to study abroad or an MBA student abroad interested in studying at UBC’s Sauder School of Business for a term, international exchange will set you on the path to an exciting and rewarding experience.
Global Immersion Experience (GIE)
A key component of the UBC MBA, the GIE allows you to go abroad for two weeks and consult for a pre-selected overseas company on a real world business challenge. The 5-month experience begins at UBC Sauder with an introduction to the business practices and customs of your host country. Then, once abroad for two weeks, you'll consult with a local company's management team and help them solve some of their unique business problems.
