If you want to study in Canada and build a career there, this webinar with UBC Sauder School of Business may be what you are looking for.
The speakers, recruitment and admissions managers Kevin Ly and Natalie Souresrafil, give an insight into what it’s like to study at UBC and they also outline their career paths after graduation and share some tips on how to get admitted to the business school.
Master of Business Analytics
First, Natalie gives an overview of the Master of Business Analytics at UBC. The program is offered in the heart of Vancouver and lasts 12 months. The curriculum offers technical but also business-focused courses. It gives participants a core understanding of the business world, but also the technical side as well, so they can bridge those two worlds effectively.
Experiential learning is at the core of the course. During the final three months students work in a paid analytics consulting internship where they implement everything they have learnt in the program. The network students gain access to during this experience is one of the most valuable components of the course.
Candidates come from more than 30 countries and have different professional backgrounds. Work experience is not required, but a typical candidate has worked for about four years on average. Alumni find work in a variety of different industries such as technology, financial services, communication and computer services.
GMAT or GRE are required. The program costs between CAD 40,000 for Canadian and CAD 57,000 for international students.
Master of Management (MM)
Kevin then presents the Master of Management program, outlining several components that make the course stand out. The program’s duration is nine months and is designed to give students an understanding of a number of different business fundamentals. Participants will learn about topics such as marketing, logistics, accounting, finance, entrepreneurship etc. The focus is again on experiential learning, with courses being quite hands-on and practical.
Students can also take advantage of one-on-one career coaching. There is also a mandatory community business project pairing clients up with students who act as consultants. The clients are non-profits or social enterprises based in Vancouver. Participants also can take advantage of exchange opportunities with universities around the world.
The program is highly international and enables alumni to work all over Canada.
To apply, candidates need to have a non-business Bachelors degree. There is also a two-year cap on work experience. GMAT or GRE are required, too.
