Sauder School of Business – University of British Columbia


In 2003, nearly 50 years after the original founding of the UBC Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration, the school was renamed in honor of Dr. William Sauder, who awarded the school $20 million. Just a few years later, Vancouver business philanthropist Robert H. Lee donated another large gift to the school, helping establish the Robert H. Lee Graduate School.


The UBC Sauder Business School is located in the central part of the Point Grey campus in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The school has an additional facility, the UBC Robson Square, in downtown Vancouver. The main campus is located about 20 kilometers northeast of the Vancouver International Airport.


The MBA programs at the Sauder School of Business are taught by the Robert H. Lee Graduate School, which was renovated in 2012, alongside the entire business school. The Robert H. Lee Graduate School building features class and meeting rooms, conference rooms, video centers, and more. The recently renovated complex also features the Bruce R. Birmingham Undergraduate Centre, the Hari B. Varshney Business Career Centre, the Jim Pattison Leadership Centre, lecture halls, theatres, common areas, and much more. The 2012 renovation added 55,000 square-feet to the original 216,000 square foot building.


The business school features 82 full-time tenured or tenure-tracked professors and 25 full-time lecturers.
