See things differently.

How would you like to spend one year in a supercharged, intensive global business environment, immersed in new cultures and gaining real-world business experience? If you’re ready to get out of your comfort zone, work across cultural borders and expand your career, then the Master of Global Business is the right adventure for you. Here’s why:

International at heart.

Our Master of Global Business program is like no other in Canada. The world is your classroom. You choose your own Path, spending nine months in three countries building business fundamentals, experiencing different educational formats and developing cross-cultural understanding. At the end of those nine months, you complete the program with a global internship.

A different point of view.

Not only will you live, breathe and see how business is done differently through firsthand experience, you’ll challenge perspectives and learn to see the world through your classmates’ eyes. You’ll study and travel as a close-knit group for nine months, learning to problem-solve, communicate and make decisions as a team.

A vibrant learning culture.

Explore the world knowing that you have a wide network of instructors, students and alumni who can help you adapt to new cultures and meet the challenges that come with new experiences. Gain confidence and develop a global mindset you won’t find in the pages of textbooks, business theories or a typical classroom setting.

Brilliant by nature.

Consider the University of Victoria’s beautiful campus as your gateway to the world. It’s also your gateway to the Pacific Northwest and all it has to offer. Most importantly, our university campus is where you’ll first meet your instructors, your international classmates and get started on your global adventure.

Consider your footprint.

Working on multinational projects, you’ll consider the role of social entrepreneurship and environmental sustainability from international business perspectives. As you roam the world you’ll see and understand the impact of sustainable business.
