Your MBA Adventure Awaits

Our MBA is not for everyone: our small, cohort based classes (no more than 50) require you to speak up and speak out. We also offer unique specializations, send our students overseas, and give you a mentor. Frankly, that's too much for some.

Our location in Victoria, BC, even offers you the chance to be adventurous, as it not only gives you opportunities to connect with a diversity of people but to also drink in the astonishing beauty of our natural landscapes 365 days of the year.

With all this, you will be able to build on your non-business undergraduate degree and your existing professional work experience to take that next big leap forward in your life and career. Read about our MBA experience in detail in our five points of difference below.
