The Natural Resources Club aims to increase awareness and introduce Sauder MBA students about the natural resources industries (Mining, Renewables, Oil & Gas) and incite career aspirations for the new generation of Sauder Graduates. We work as an enabler for students aspiring to work in this industry and bring in all possible sources of information. 

To achieve these, we work as facilitators to get face‐time interaction with industry professionals through networking events, panel discussions, case competitions and industry nights.
