Why the UVic MBA may not be for you?

When most people think of an MBA program, they think of a quick way up the career ladder or a stepping stone to a bigger salary. It’s an opportunity to extend your business knowledge, create new connections and hopefully advance your professional career, right? Yes, but that’s only part of it. If you’re only interested in pursuing an MBA in terms of profits and promotions, then you’ll probably find that the UVic MBA isn’t right for you.

It’s not that there is anything wrong with setting your sights on Bay Street or Wall Street. We just believe an MBA should push you to think bigger. That’s why instead of prioritizing the bottom line, like most business schools, our MBA challenges students to take a more sustainable approach to business that includes responsible leadership. This may not be important to you, but for our students it’s the difference that leads to building a career that aligns with their values. And it’s what has inspired us to take a unique approach to delivering an MBA.

Admitting only a small number of highly qualified students each year, you will enjoy an intimate learning experience with tremendous access to resources such as our Executive Mentor program, networking opportunities, career and professional development resources and co-op (paid internship) options.

We also offer a 12-16 month Master of Global Business program which allows you to study in 3 different countries!!  And a 12-month Master of Management program.
