Why are business courses required from non-business degree graduates?
Get ready for 12 months of intensive and experiential learning. We want to jump right into the good stuff, which is we ask students to take the foundations of business education first. The good news is that these five courses can be completed at any point during their undergraduate degree – at UVic or from other recognized institution. For more details on these five foundational courses in business, you can visit our prerequisite section of our Admissions page, or contact us at: gillasst@uvic.ca

What kind of preference is given to UVIC undergraduates?
There are many perks to attending UVIC, including streamlined access to the MM program. Please visit our For Uvic Students page found in our Admissions tab. Students seeking preferred access should contact the MM program office in the Gustavson School of Business.

Are students responsible for finding their own internship positions?
Throughout the program, our team provides support in determining the best career paths for each student. For more details, you can also visit our Career Opportunities page to learn more about our work experience placement.

What kind of career support is provided to MM students?
Be prepared to be immersed in the MM community. Meet organizational partners, mentors and faculty who are here to support all of our students' diverse backgrounds and unique career goals. Similar to our approach with work placement, we take a very personalized approach with providing career support, ensuring students are expanding personal networks and building important skill sets. We work with students to provide one-on-one coaching and provide exposure to a variety of organizations through the course of the program.
