A consultant with a background in psychology, Joyce Ip had always excelled at communications. But to progress at her firm she knew she needed to master business strategy.
Since pursuing a Part-time MBA (now known as the Professional MBA) at UBC Sauder, Joyce has become a partner at her consultancy firm specializing in risk management.
“Being able to provide clients with solutions for when something impacts their business – whether it’s a flood, fire or a cyber-attack – and ensuring their most critical services continue to function; that’s what I love about my work,” she says.
