The competitive edge

Career development

Prepare to be immersed. We are with you every step of the way to help you better understand how to shape your career path and outcomes based on your unique experience, knowledge and interests. We appreciate there is no clear path forward for graduates of non-business degrees, which became the rationale for UVic tailoring our own Master of Management program. Over a 12-month duration, we work closely with students to provide hands-on support and resources required to navigate existing and emerging career paths. Integrating this support throughout the program with dedicated staff, intensive work experience, and our mentoring program is the key to creating desirable candidates. Our mission is to support our students in realizing viable career options and fostering real-world connections while applying a sustainable lens to business.

Don’t just listen to us. We couldn’t have designed this program without our business community. Hear from them on why a Master of Management program is critical to our future workforce.

‘Our organizations sees value in having students with graduate training in management skills, as we look for diverse graduates who not only have technical training, but can also demonstrate the ‘human skills’ of self-awareness, adaptability, relationship management, team work, ethical judgement and cultural awareness, that are so important for success now and in the future.’

‘The Masters of Management program would serve very well as a bridge for students that have an undergraduate degree to consider careers in management and business within the indigenous community, government and corporate context.’

‘The UVic Master of management program addresses not only our local needs but key global trends as the labour market increasingly looks for graduates with skills including cognitive flexibility, emotional intelligence, creativity and complex problem-solving.’
