Masters in Management at UBC Sauder

Post Mon Dec 19, 2016 3:43 am
Hi. I have 1.5yrs of experience and I'm inclined towards joining UBC Sauder. But their MBA program requires 2yrs of experience minimum.So i checked out their Masters in Management(MM) program which is a 9 month course.

Could you please provide me with useful insights about the MM course at Sauder? The job opportunities, career growth, reputability and other factors. Also, if it is a 9 month course, how would the work permit visa be given? Would it be given for a year at the least?

Would be of great help if you could provide info on this Smile Thank you!!

While I'm not UBC student (actually I'm enrolled at SFU, UBC's closest thing to a local 'rival' school) it's pretty safe to say that any degree/diploma from there is going to have a pretty solid reputation behind it simply because of the SFU and Sanders names.

I don't know much about the MM program but from looking at the program online it looks to be more of a graduate diploma type program than a full degree. That is partially given how short the program is and what appears to be a pretty general curriculum. Their MBA is definitely going to provide you with a better leg up when it comes to landing more senior positions.

Given that you are six months shy of their minimum requirement I would suggest you look at applying for the MBA. The program starts in September so theoretically you will have the 2 years experience by the time the program starts.

Having applied to both UBC and SFU's part time programs I know both schools won't ding you based on a single item that is just below the requirement. Both programs wanted 3.0 GPA and both offered me enrollment with a 2.9 GPA as my GMAT and work experience offset my low GPA.

For info on work permits/visas I would suggest getting in touch with a recruiter at UBC. They should be able to answer you questions and shine some more light on the MM versus MBA option.

And just because I can, I would recommend looking at SFU as well. There is a lot of UBC is better than SFU slag thrown around but depending on where you want to work after you are done you MBA SFU has a solid reputation in the Lower Mainland, a really robust Career Services department, and a solid academic track record.
