Profile of Sauder School of Business MBA - University of British Columbia

The University of British Columbia's Sauder School of Business, named after Dr. William Sauder, Chairman of Interfor and Sauder Industries, is one of the foremost business schools in the world. As one of the most research intensive institutions in Canada, the Sauder School of Business has led all Canadian business schools with more than $1.3 million annually in research grants since 1995, and, combined with its 15 specialized research facilities, has contributed significantly to the intellectual and practical advancement of business administration and management.

The School's programs are themselves research intensive following the faculty's belief that theories and the basics of business have longer lives than do any specific changes in the real corporate world, and that the former usually transcend the latter. Therefore, if one has a sound foundation in theory and in the functional fundamentals of business, an individual does not need to return to school and learn everything from scratch because he or she can usually quickly adapt to whatever changes may occur except for some minor upgrading in technical skills.

Offered by University of British Columbia School of Business are over 12 major programs among which are the Bachelor of Commerce, Master of Business Administration (MBA), full-time and part-time options, with specialization opportunities in business innovation, consulting and strategic management, finance, product and service management, International Masters of Business Administration (MBA) (taught in tandem with Shanghai Jiao Tong University in China), EMBA in health care, combined MBA-CMA (Certified management accountant), joint (Law) LLB/MBA program, and joint MBA/MAPPS program (Master of Arts, Asia Pacific Policy Studies), two Master of Management programs, Master of Science in Business Administration, and a Ph.D. degree allowing students to major in 1 of 8 business designations and also engage in cross-field study in International Business or Transportation and Logistics. Students are provided with the opportunity to bring a first-hand global perspective to their studies via student exchange programs with partnered institutions in over 30 countries in Asia, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East. Additionally, the School offers a Diploma in Accounting, a wide array of executive training and development education, and the most comprehensive proffering of programs in Real Estate, via the Real Estate Division (RED), in Canada. Included in the latter are a national correspondence program for Real Property Appraisal, a nationally recognized Certificate Program in Real Property Assessment, a 4-year Urban Land Economics Diploma Program, and pre-licensing courses.
