Student life

  • Close-knit community. A collegial environment Our student cohorts strike the perfect balance: you work closely with small groups so you really get to know your fellow classmates. Yet they are large and diverse enough to expand your network to every corner of the globe.
    Each of our programs strives to foster a respectful, collegial environment. Collaboration is a cornerstone: the network you’ll build at UBC Sauder will be invaluable in your career for years to come, your classmates will become your colleagues, clients, contacts.
  • Experiential learning What you learn outside the classroom is every bit as important as what you learn inside. From co-ops to internships, to Global Immersion and volunteer opportunities like Social Entrepreneurship Kenya, these will become the experiences that help define you.
  • The calibre you’re looking for You’ll find the highest quality programs here. UBC Sauder was ranked as the #1 Business School in Canada by Maclean’s Magazine in 2022. 
  • World-class. West Coast. An exceptional city UBC Sauder sits on the edge of the Pacific Ocean on the University of British Columbia’s picturesque Vancouver campus, not far from Downtown, the epicentre of business in Western Canada.
    Often called Silicon Valley North, Vancouver is a hotbed of startups: Hootsuite, Lululemon and Recon Instruments – which was founded at UBC Sauder and ultimately sold to Intel – all got their start here.
  • The outdoors Our climate is temperate; beaches are minutes from school, with sailing, paddle boarding and kayaking four seasons a year. The mountains – so close you can see them from campus – offer skiing in the winter and hiking in the summer.
  • The lifestyle Vancouver has all the hallmarks of the world’s greatest cities: world-class arts and culture, a thriving culinary scene, professional sports teams. And it has something that eludes most major cities: a relaxed energy that encourages work/life balance.
