Our Alumni Stories

Brianna Brown

Nada

UBC MM greens retail with package-free groceries

Brianna Brown wanted a socially and environmentally aligned career. Now, she’s using her MM to explore opportunities in Toronto, the social finance capital of Canada.

“Business made a lot of sense for me because it has such a weighty impact on the world,” she says. “It can be a tremendous tool for good.”

That’s why Brianna pursued a Master of Management (MM) at UBC Sauder; it’s designed to give candidates from non-business backgrounds tangible business skills and experience.

Today, Brianna is consulting for a package-free grocery store called Nada in Vancouver while simultaneously exploring opportunities in social finance in Toronto.

“The MM set me down a path I’m very excited about,” she says.

Karan D'Souza

UBC MD 2018

Surgeon-to-be uses business to think beyond the operating table

“I want to be a leader,” says Karan D’souza, an MD candidate who earned an MM at UBC Sauder. “That’s why I wanted to gain a business background – to apply it to my career in healthcare.”

In the MM program, Karan studied alongside a diverse cohort: his fellow candidates came from arts, engineering, and computer science, among other faculties.

“I wasn’t just learning about business,” he says. “I was learning about different ways of thinking.”

Now in med school, Karan has been using his business background to streamline healthcare systems and improve patient outcomes.

“We've looked at how our patients flow through the hospital and how we can optimize that,” he says. “I’ve been able to take the concepts I learned in my MM and apply them to medicine.”

Christina Meng

Slack

Dentist-to-be uses UBC MM to cut her teeth in the tech sector

Christina Meng wanted to be a dentist. But the further she got into her Bachelor of Science, the clearer it was that dentistry wasn’t for her.

A summer job at Bell Media crystalized a new direction for Christina.

“I found I loved marketing and promotions,” she says.

But transitioning from science to business isn’t easy. So Christina pursued a Master of Management at UBC Sauder to make it happen. Now, she’s a Customer Success Manager at Slack, a communications platform that’s generating serious buzz.

“I love what I’m doing and there’s no way I would have made the switch if it weren’t for the UBC MM program,” she says.

UBC MM positions alum at forefront of green tech

Zeynep Kucukerol wanted to work in green technologies. But because she trained as an industrial engineer, she needed to broaden her education.

“I wanted business skills that would open doors into the niche area I had set my sights on,” she says.

Zeynep decided on UBC Sauder’s Master of Management (MM) because it offers substantial consulting experience in Vancouver, a city dedicated to green initiatives. Now, she’s in marketing at Solegear Bioplastic Technologies, which makes sustainable plastics out of renewable material.

“There are many paths opening up in front of me now,” she says. “I owe that to my MM.”
