Evolve. A Decade of Impact Building for the Future

Page 1

2012–2022


Message from the Dean An unforgettable journey, a bold future. Dear friends, When I first joined the UBC Sauder School of Business in 2012, I brought with me a core belief that we can build a more just, sustainable and prosperous world through innovation and responsible leadership. A decade later, it is clear this vision has been embraced and embedded across the school. A pivotal moment for the school Over the past ten years, we’ve made great strides in the areas of sustainability, innovation and new technologies. Yet we’re collectively facing complex challenges that require urgent solutions: a pandemic, the climate emergency, racial and social inequality, and more. Now, more than ever, the world needs responsible leaders—visionaries who have the courage to identify problems, who use their emotional intelligence to communicate with empathy and who possess the drive to make a difference. We need leaders who believe in the power of business for social good. These are the people who define UBC Sauder. Thanks to the talents of our faculty, we’re known as a world-leading research institution. We’re providing transformative opportunities to our students and equipping them with a global outlook. We’re creating partnerships across the university to offer interdisciplinary programs. Our students, faculty and staff are working collaboratively to create a respectful and inclusive environment supported by highly engaged alumni and community partners. We’re making progress towards meaningful reconciliation and consciously building a greater Indigenous presence at the school. By leveraging our strengths, we’ve established an international reputation for innovation and social responsibility. All of this while successfully navigating COVID-19 where we moved our entire educational delivery model online and still provided students with an exceptional learning experience and kept our staff teams running at full capacity. Revolutionizing the future of business education As I look ahead, I see a new building that will reshape the campus. A place that will bring people together to catalyze new ways of thinking, new knowledge and new solutions for society. A new home for our graduate school where this incredible community can continue to collaborate, innovate and learn together. We call it the Powerhouse Project, and at heart, it’s where this community will continue to flourish and have a positive impact on society. I thank you all for being a part of this incredible journey. It is because of your dedication and talent that UBC Sauder is well positioned to lead the way to a brighter, more equitable future. Dr. Robert Helsley, Dean, UBC Sauder School of Business, Grosvenor Professor of Cities, Business Economics and Public Policy

Advancing our purpose

A snapshot of our evolving programs

Global academic partnerships, global outlook

Tremendous growth across our school has been rooted in interfaculty collaboration, expansion and building our national and international impact. Here are some highlights:

We’re building our network across borders to gain perspectives and share knowledge.

New programs to address new market needs

In 2015, UBC Sauder joined GNAM, a prestigious global network of graduate schools. As part of our participation, the school delivered a GNAM course called “Urban resilience: Complexity, collaborative structures, and leading change” that focuses on helping cities adapt to climate change and other socioeconomic factors.

New programs were introduced to reflect what students want today: flexibility, relevance and the right skills to build their careers. • Where passion meets profession the Bachelor + Master of Management Dual Degree, which enables students to combine a subject they are passionate about with a UBC Sauder postgraduate business qualification. • Accelerating careers The new Professional MBA has a flexible 24-month curriculum for gaining business acumen and leadership skills while keeping career momentum. Applications have more than doubled since launching the PMBA in 2017. • Transforming decision-making The Master of Business Analytics, a new nine-month curriculum equips students with competencies and tools for data-driven decision-making. • Developing lifelong learners Continuing Business Studies, established in 2017, delivers applied skills for those early on in their careers, and complements Executive Education programs for managers and senior leaders. • Expanding our reach in real estate We’ve expanded our licensing course to Saskatchewan, created a new program for condominium managers in Alberta and built new partnerships with Mortgage Professionals Canada. 4 | UBC SAUDER SCHOOL OF BUSINESS

New research centres focused on ethics and responsible business

Our PhD program: building brilliant minds for the future

We’re bridging discourse with hands-on information and knowledge for the business world and society.

Over the past decade, our PhD program has flourished. Our diverse and talented group of students has made significant contributions to business via their research, rigour and drive.

The Peter P. Dhillon Centre for Business Ethics Established in 2015 through the generosity of Peter P. Dhillon, the centre is dedicated to advancing ethical and values-driven business practices through its pillars: supporting students, research and the business community.

“Under the leadership of Dean Helsley and our advisory board of prominent business leaders, the Dhillon Centre has been successful in significantly advancing responsibility as a core value of business at UBC Sauder, academia and the business community.” Christie Stephenson, Executive Director, Peter P. Dhillon Centre for Business Ethics

The Montalbano Centre for Responsible Leadership Development Established in 2021 through the generosity of Dana and John Montalbano, the centre is focused on promotion of responsible leadership as a core value, a skillset and an emerging field of discipline.

“You cannot lead others until you lead yourself. We’re here to educate and train our students on how to contribute to this important conversation so we can collectively address the most challenging issues.” Dr. Daniel Skarlicki, Academic Director, Montalbano Centre for Responsible Leadership Development

Decision Insights for Business and Society (DIBS) A mission to improve outcomes across major societal and planetary challenges by deepening an understanding of decision-making and helping people make better choices— choices that are better for themselves and for the world.

“The question for us is: how do we leverage behavioural insights for positive social impacts? How do we use this to make a difference on issues such as the climate crisis and equity, diversity and inclusion— especially within organizations?”

Accelerating innovation and social impact We’re building an entrepreneurial mindset across the school. Together we envision and create massively scalable companies ready to address the world’s most complex challenges.

From start up to scale up In September 2016, UBC Sauder became the western Canadian arm of the Creative Destruction Lab (CDL), a technology accelerator program from the University of Toronto. Each year, more than 600 founders, advisors, investors and technology executives come together to deliver a hands-on learning experience.

Interdisciplinary collaborations Since 2013, UBC Sauder students have tested and incubated their early-stage ventures with peers across the university via e@UBC.
