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 four different 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.
Through our three-month Community Business Project, students will have the opportunity to apply their new skills to solve a business problem for a non-profit organization or social enterprise. Students will also finish off their MM journey with a two-day business simulation giving them a final opportunity to apply and integrate their new skills in a competitive learning environment.
