Brilliant by nature.

Each day of learning begins at our beautiful University of Victoria campus. We’ve created a unique learning environment that includes students like you from around the globe and faculty who offer a wealth of international experience. Our team-building activities are packed with everything from whale watching to beach volleyball, and visits to world-famous sites like the Butchart Gardens.

International at heart.

Our program is focused on helping you prepare for your future business success. Our collaborative learning environment and group assignments help build intercultural awareness, develop long lasting friendships, and build real-world skills.

A different point of view.

We offer two specializations: business communications and business management, taught by our award-winning faculty. We also bring in relevant guest speakers with realworld, international experience to share their experiences and deepen your learning.

A vibrant learning culture.

Our intensive summer programs allow you to put theory into practice by either working on an international project or considering the ins and outs of starting your own business. Our activities are designed to challenge your boundaries both academically and socially.

Consider your footprint.

Sustainability is part of our business model. Our summer program provides exposure to the financial, social and environmental considerations business must take into account in today’s global marketplace.
