People have children during the program, people get married during the program; life still happens.

UBC Sauder’s new Professional MBA program is designed to work better around candidates’ work and personal lives, taking into account issues like those Aries faced.
“We made quite a few adjustments to the program schedule so our candidates can achieve a better balance,” says Darren Dahl, Director of UBC Sauder’s Robert H. Lee Graduate School. “For example, we eliminated Friday night classes so people can relax, spend time with their families and then be recharged for Saturday and Sunday in class. We now have real breaks over summer and winter – without projects due.”
Plus, classes will now be stretched over three weekends, instead of two as in the previous program, giving candidates more time to read, digest material and apply it to assignments.
“People have children during the program, people get married during the program; life still happens,” says Dahl. “We changed our approach so our candidates can more easily experience it all.”
