UBC Sauder School of Business

At UBC Sauder we challenge our students to think about the big problems – climate change, inequality, globalization – and graduate them with the knowledge and skills to play a role in solving the world’s challenges.

It is this philosophy of creating positive impact that will help us achieve our vision of collectively building a more just, sustainable and prosperous world through innovation and responsible leadership. After all, when you’re located in Vancouver, Canada, at the edge of the ocean, it’s easy to remember what you have to protect and to be inspired to think about the possibilities for the future.
