Enterprise Architect

POSSITIF Services Ltd.

After using Agile for over 20 years, I was glad to learn in 2019 about the UBC Sauder School, Agile Leadership Certificate offering. This has given me an opportunity to fill-in the blanks in my experience and to confirm what I have been doing, mostly by common sense, allowing me to finally connect the dots and understand the why of this useful and proven Methodology and all the roles and responsibilities that each role plays.

Sandy Tanaka, Certificate in Change Management

Assistant Dean and Director

Finance at UBC Sauder School of Business

After taking the change management program, I started to really hone in on the areas where we evaluate the impacts, because most people want to know how they are going to be affected. Being communicated to by a person who has built that trust and credibility with them has made this easier." Read full article here.

"UBC Continuing Business Studies courses have given me so much more confidence! The terminology, hands on experience and the different instructors who shared their expertise and "tricks in the trade" helped so much. As a result, I stopped looking at things closed mindedly with an open-minded and outside-the-box perspective. You can be a project manager anywhere, but using the right tools and knowledge helps. And this is what this course did."

"Since completing the course, I’ve established myself as a capable Business Analyst. This has given me freedom to try ‘outside the box’ solutions on my projects. As the old saying goes, you need to learn the rules well, so you can break them efficiently.”

“After years of picking up skills while working in a startup environment, I decided to pursue formal education offered through UBC Continuing Business Studies to help fill in the gaps and strengthen my practical competencies in project management.”

Zachary Musa, UBC Certificate in Project Management

Project Manager

STEMCELL Technologies

“The most helpful aspect of the program is that each module is taught by a different project management professional with a proven track record of completing big projects on time. Their experience reinforced the course material, as each instructor could provide real-life case studies. I also appreciated the key business management ideas that were integrated into the curriculum. In essence, the course was like a mini-MBA!”
Terry Kaplan

Terry Kaplan, UBC Certificate in Project Management

Senior Buisiness Analyst


"For me, the most interesting aspect of my journey in obtaining my PMP and how it assisted my career path has to do with the work I am doing now with Telus. My engineering background isn't related with what I currently do at Telus, so I really believe having my PMP was essential in obtaining my new job and career path."

Vice President, Internal Controls

Sandstorm Gold Ltd.

“I would recommend the UBC CFA Test Prep Course and the Boot Camp. The Prep Course kept me on track for learning large volumes of information found on the exam, and gave me a better understanding of the material. The Boot Camp was a great 3-day intensive review that left me feeling more confident in the final lead-up to the exam.”

“For me, both the UBC CFA Test Prep Course and Boot Camp were an essential component of passing the CFA Level 1 exam. It saved me so much time by providing simple problem solving techniques to some of the harder and/or longer questions. Time allocation is important when challenging the CFA, so getting guidance on how to create an effective study schedule based on topic difficulty was a big help.”
