UVic Weekend MBA

General

Program Description

Designed to address these challenges, the UVic Weekend MBA is an educational experience like no other. Here, you’ll learn the critical skills that managers need to deal with a complex world, in a weekend format that allows you to continue working while you take the program.

The UVic Weekend MBA opens with a one-week introductory module in which you’ll work closely with your cohort, reflect on your own leadership style and begin to wrestle with the complexity of business decisions in BC and the world. As the program unfolds, you’ll be introduced to the core functions of business through foundation courses, learn how these apply in different settings in context courses, and think beyond boundaries in integrative courses.

Classes will be held over a weekend, approximately once every four weeks, for 24 months. Between class weekends, you’ll work with your team on coursework and applied projects online or in person. The International Applied Project will take you overseas for a one-week immersion where you’ll conduct on-the-ground research for an international consulting project. You’ll finish the program with a one-week capstone module and an integrative project.

By engaging deeply with real-world, local issues that have global implications, you will develop the skills to understand today’s problems and confront tomorrow’s challenges. The UVic Weekend MBA helps you move to the next level and beyond.

  • Weekend format designed for your life

  • Small class size and team-based cohort learning
