Building your career

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.

Career coaching

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.

Self-assessment tools

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.

Experiential learning

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.

Emotional Intelligence Assessment

The RocheMartin - Emotional Capital Report (ECR) is a personalized leadership development tool that provides you with a comprehensive interpretation of your leadership potential based on an assessment of your emotional intelligence.

All UBC Sauder students take the ECR Assessment as part their career development programming. After completing the assessment, students will meet with a career manager to find out more about how they can leverage and build EQ strengths to help you achieve career success.

Mentorship and training programs

Advance your career with the help of an experienced industry professional in one of our mentorship or training programs. The style and format of the programs vary. Some are geared at getting you recruitment-ready, others are skills-focused, but all will help you advance your career.

Career development workshops

We host a range of workshops and events to help you clarify your career goals and get the skills you need to succeed in the job market. We offer workshops on resume and cover letter writing, networking, interviewing and negotiations.
