Programme Start Dates: January, April, July, October
UCW’s ACBSP and NCMA-accredited Master of Business Administration (MBA) program will prepare you for success on the global stage. You will learn how to take challenging situations in a stride, apply pragmatic solutions to problems and drive the success of your organization through informed decision-making.
The program will develop your knowledge and skillset so that you can handle increasingly complex problems. Team activities are an intrinsic part of the MBA, developing team skills for modern business and providing a collegial learning environment.
Our MBA program also includes relevant digital components. We collaborate with digital leaders such as the Digital Marketing Institute, Salesforce (Trailhead), Tableau, and IBM to keep our students updated with upcoming technological trends.
Tableau, Salesforce, IBM Design Thinking, and the Digital Marketing Institute (DMI) have been incorporated into the Master of Business Administration program courses at UCW as the university continues its evolution towards becoming Vancouver’s tech-business university. Students learn from these experts, helping them to solve complex business problems with the help of technology.
Digital Marketing Institute
Our partnership with DMI means that upon successful completion of the Marketing Management course, you will receive associate-level certification from DMI. You will then have the option to take a set of three digital marketing electives, which will set you up to take DMI’s Pearson VUE test to get certified as a Digital Marketing Professional, in addition to earning your MBA degree from UCW.
Thanks to a partnership between DMI and the American Marketing Association (AMA), if you complete the digital marketing electives and pass the DMI Pearson VUE test, you will also get AMA Professional Certified Marketer certification.
Tableau, a powerful data visualization tool used in the business intelligence industry, has been incorporated into UCW’s Business-650 (Business Analytics) course.
Salesforce is an online solution for customer relationship management (CRM). It gives all departments within a company, including marketing, sales, commerce, and service, a shared view of their customers with one integrated CRM platform. Salesforce has been incorporated into Marketing-621 (Marketing Management).
IBM Design Thinking
UCW has created a new course about entrepreneurship that launched this term. Business-641 (Entrepreneurship) incorporates IBM Design Thinking into the MBA program. The IBM Design Thinking model is a scalable framework aimed at big enterprises that uses three principles to solve complex problems creatively.
Our programs are delivered over four terms per year, which means motivated students can complete their degree more quickly, reducing the time they spend in school before landing their dream job. If you possess previously earned university credits recognized by UCW, you may find yourself completing your program faster than you thought possible.
Integrated work experience for MBA students is available as an option. You can do one or two terms of work placement during your MBA studies. This part of the course is designed to provide a supervised practical experience where students can apply the skills they have developed during the MBA program. If you wish, you will be able to take this option in your second and/ or third MBA term (35 hours per week for 12 weeks) to prepare you to successfully find a work-experience position.
