I was the rare Canadian student at UCW (from Vancouver) in a class of 60 students. Most students are international or at least new permanent residents in Canada. Personally, this is one thing I loved about my experience. You're exposed to diverse backgrounds and ideas.

I read mixed reviews about UCW online before enrolling, but I can tell you Global University Systems (GUS) acquired the school and has turned things around. Student services are top-notch and governance is very good. Unlike in the US, the BC government has reviewed and approved the takeover and new curriculum. They are backed by British Columbia EQA and Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs and others.

The other thing that's great about UCW unlike a US degree is that it won't cost you $200,000! It's a fraction of the cost. The profs are great and the school is very much invested in your career. No looking back for me.

I always wanted an MBA and wasn't getting a lot of work with my undergraduate business degree in Canada which I completed in South Korea. UCW offered a small class size and professors who aren't just researchers but business owners and executives at companies of different sizes. I got plenty of theory with my undergraduate business degree -- I was looking for something more. I graduated in October 2017 and haven't looked back. For me, this was the perfect program. It helped me learn skills I could apply the day I graduated and I'm sure it helped me get the job I have today.
