Once a student is admitted into the program, they are paired up with a current MBA student ambassador. This individual will be available to you to meet over coffee (or Skype if you’re not in Vancouver at the time) to share their experience, offer study tips, advice on where to get textbooks, share their experience about living in Vancouver etc. Your student ambassador will become not only someone that can help you with your transition into the program but be someone to add to your professional network.
International students are also paired up with an International Student Ambassador who will be from the same region of the world as you. They will be able to let you know first-hand what it was like to move to Vancouver and study in this new environment. International students will not be alone in this very important life event.
