Part-time MBA in Kelowna
Access to graduate business education in the Okanagan has been expanded with the launch of the UBC MBA Part-time Program in Kelowna. The UBC MBA Part-time program is now offered at UBC Okanagan. Designed with working professionals in mind, the UBC MBA Part-time Program offers students access to an award-winning MBA degree in a Friday evening and weekend format over a 28-month period.
In the Heart of the Okanagan
For one weekend every three weeks, you will join a dynamic class of diverse and talented individuals at our newly renovated UBC Okanagan campus, what was previously the North Kelowna campus of OUC. You will learn from instructors who are at the forefront of management thinking and business research. Through your interactions with colleagues from both Vancouver and Kelowna, you'll build valuable business contacts throughout your program. The UBC MBA Part-time program in Kelowna is run in tandem with the Vancouver-based program offered at UBC Robson Square.
State-of-the art real-time, full-motion videoconferencing links the two classrooms, enabling interaction between the Kelowna and Vancouver locations. This technology is complemented by classes delivered in person by a team of instructors in both Kelowna and Vancouver to ensure sufficient face-to-face interaction with faculty.
The 28-month UBC MBA Part-time Program curriculum is comprised of four key components; the award-winning Integrated Core, Module Studies, the Career Development Program (CDP) and an Industry Project for a total of 51 credits. A general management degree, the UBC MBA Part-time program enables students to develop invaluable expertise across a broad range of key business subjects, such as financial management, business strategy, human resources and business development.
Through case studies, lectures, guest speakers and team projects, students participate in course work that links business theory with business practice and enables them to apply what they learn before graduation. Students can also elect to enroll in all or part of the Pre-Core Program, a preparatory program that prepares incoming students for the demanding nature of the Integrated Core experience.
UBC seeks bright, talented, enthusiastic, and creative individuals committed to a high level of achievement in their academic, personal, and professional lives. Admission is based on a careful review of academic records, GMAT scores, work experience, essays and letters of recommendation. Upon acceptance, you will take your place alongside some of the most capable students enrolled in an MBA program anywhere.
