Built on the feedback of alumni like Aries Suswendi, the UBC Professional MBA is optimized to fit the lives of busy professionals.
After completing a Part-time MBA (now known as the Professional MBA) at UBC Sauder, Aries Suswendi was promoted twice within a year. He is now an innovation leader at ICBC, where he’s responsible for technology deployments that improve the corporation’s claims and insurance systems. But his career hadn’t always been on an upward trajectory.
"I got stuck in my career progress,” he says. “I was in the same position for several years because I was lacking business knowledge.”
That’s when he decided to pursue an MBA at UBC Sauder’s Robert H. Lee Graduate School.
