The vision of the PSM Club is to engage and train students interested in fields of marketing, brand strategy, operations, supply chain management, and product & service management, thereby augmenting their learning outside the classroom.
In collaboration with UBC’s esteemed faculty, alumni and the career center, the club aims to enhance exposure to the business community through a series of speaker events, company tours, case competitions, workshops and networking events. The club also aims to facilitate club members in securing job opportunities through the various platforms provided. Finally, the club provides financial support to join local marketing networking organizations such as the BCAMA.
