I always saw myself working beyond clinical pharmacy. I felt that I could also shine on the business side of healthcare. The most valuable skill I got from my MBA was the shifting and expanding of the way I think and solve business problems.

Oliver Zihlmann, PT MBA

Director of Development and Alumni Engagement at UBC Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences

The Part-Time MBA was excellent. It gave me exactly what I expected to receive, and I think that is the highest compliment you can pay a program. It met all my expectations and provided a solid grounding in business skills and strategies.

Bobby
Bobbie Dhillon

Senior Vice President, Marketing & Planning at G&F Financial Group

My key lessons from the program were learning how to effectively frame and structure a problem or situation, manage a tight schedule, know what to prioritize and how to prioritize it, and identify core problems quickly and addressing them.

Wanda Rockthunder

Business Instructor, Saskatchewan Indian Institute of Technologies at Cree, a citizen of the Muskowekwan First Nation, Saskatchewan

The learners I work with are 95% Indigenous, and I find that they become more interested and retain information more, when we speak and learn from an Indigenous lens. The Indigenous content integrated into the program has been very beneficial to me in terms of how I can incorporate Indigenous information into the curriculum I currently teach.
