Empowering students for career success
You’re here to build your career. So are we. Our Hari B. Varshney Business Career Centre plays a critical role in the UBC Professional MBA program, offering you dedicated one-on-one career coaching, professional skills training, and networking opportunities. You’ll 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.
