About Gustavson School of Business
There is a business school built for those who see the need for a new way forward. A school that, while not right for everyone, is the perfect place for thinkers of thoughts, generators of ideas, and creators of change. It’s right here, on Canada’s stunning west coast, at the Peter B. Gustavson School of Business. Here, you’ll find learning that throws out convention and sparks personal growth. Listen closely for the call of adventure. Seize opportunities to do great business today and tomorrow, near and far, in a completely different way.
The Gustavson business education and approach is founded on our vision and the four value pillars that underpin everything we do: international, integrative, innovative and sustainability/social responsibility. These values are incorporated throughout the program in course content, in teaching style, in developing our students' global mindset and in our areas of specialization. The quality of our program is reflected in the thought leadership our professors bring to the classroom and in the accreditations we have earned from AACSB, EQUIS, and as an early signatory to the UN Global Compact Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME). We're a relatively small business school, with about 1,100 students, faculty and staff, located on the west coast of Canada. We get to know our students personally to help them excel and explore the exciting world of business management. We are a growing, dynamic business school with a bright future ahead.

Define success in your own terms. Do you envision a career where the rewards are every day? Where you innovate, manage, problem-solve and lead to make a meaningful difference? If so, Gustavson provides the kind of business education that can get you there.
Internationally accredited and ranked among the top business school in Canada, we have built our reputation on high standards — for you and ourselves:
We have earned both EQUIS and AACSB accreditation, two standards of excellence that place us among the top tier of business schools worldwide.
In our BCom and MBA Programs, you can choose to specialize in entrepreneurship, international business or service management. Each is team taught, highly integrative and experiential. Or, you can always opt to remain non-specialized and tailor the program to your particular career interests.
- As a co-op grad, you’re more likely to land a job sooner, be promoted faster and earn a higher salary than non-co-op grads.
- The pay is great—the average monthly undergraduate co-op salary is $2,700 and the average graduate co-op salary is more than $3,225.
Our smaller size is your advantage. For example, as a third year BCom student, you become part of a cohort of less than 60 students. As an MBA or MGB student you join a class of less than 50 students. Our cohort based model means extensive interaction between students and instructors, as well as among students — especially as you work in tight-knit teams. The result: great friendships and an even better learning environment.
