Fostering Business Leadership with a Global Vision in the North and Beyond

Welcome from the Chair

The UNBC School of Business has re-established its vision as “Fostering Business Leadership with a Global Vision in the North and Beyond” in 2015/16.  We are now committed to putting this vision into practice in our teaching, research, and service. 

We have been working on curriculum mapping to align our offerings with this vision, to continually improve our offerings, and to maintain our high quality of Business education.  In addition, we are seeking more opportunities and options to reach out to northern and global communities through our undergraduate and graduate programs as well as research.

We believe that we help the communities and organizations of central and northern British Columbia to act on a world stage.  Our graduates possess the confidence, determination, and capability to transform business.

We very much look forward to engaging and working with you.
