Make an impact in the world.

We believe a meaningful career involves more than climbing the corporate ladder. It’s about leveraging your core values and passions to make a difference in the world. With individualized career coaching and a unique integrated curriculum, we make sure that you have all the resources you need to build a meaningful life and career on your own terms.

Career Development

Career development is an ongoing component of our program. We provide you with tools, resources, reflective learning activities and one-on-one coaching to ensure you develop strategies to take concrete steps toward achieving your career goals. 

You will experience a myriad of opportunities to explore existing and emerging career possibilities, increase your business acumen, strengthen your effectiveness as a leader, and build resilience to tackle professional challenges ahead. From coaching sessions and workshops to networking events and case competitions, you will find many options to experience innovative learning beyond the classroom. This is how we prepare students to succeed in an increasingly complex and ambiguous world and become impactful business leaders of tomorrow. 

Co-op (Paid Internship)

Home of the first co-op program in western Canada, UVic has a well-established Co-op & Career Office that has developed relationships across many industries to help students connect with co-op jobs in their chosen field or desired career path.  Our MBA students can complete one paid co-op work term during the program, allowing them to test their classroom knowledge and gain marketable experience.  Hundreds of jobs are posted to the Co-op & Career job site each term, and students can choose to apply to a range of positions in different industries and cities.  Our small cohort size allows personalized attention, so you can accomplish goals through Career Development.

Some of the many organizations that have hired our MBA students for co-op work terms include:
