How the program works

Our UBC Professional MBA program is designed for work/life/school balance. Built on the feedback of past candidates, our Professional MBA is the evolution of our Part-time MBA.

Classes take place every two or three weekends, giving you a break in between. Two courses are taught over six weeks, allowing you to focus. All exams are done online, making them easy to access.
