Are you feeling confused and overwhelmed about where to look for information and announcements? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! These are the most important websites you should bookmark in your browser.
Started by the class of 2020, the UBC MBAS calendar is your one-stop-shop for every event relevant to you as an MBA student. Be it events from the BCC, RHL or general MBA-y events happening around Vancouver, make sure to check out the calendar and we promise your FOMO will feel much better. Here’s the link: http://www.mbasociety.ca/events-calendar
The Canvas site has it all: your program schedule, exam schedule, module outlines, and track requirements can all be found here, but you’ll need to log in with your CWL. Make sure you click on the correct links for your class as the module offerings and program requirements can change from year to year.
It also contains links to all your course websites. You’ll find access to assignment drop boxes, quizzes, and grades. Professors often post course-related announcements on Canvas, so check back often to avoid missing anything important.
Do check the notifications tab on Canvas for regular updates. For the Class of 2021: https://canvas.ubc.ca/courses/27558.
The SSC is a website used by all UBC students. You can find information on your finances, final course grades, and registration status. If you’re looking for official school documents, such as transcripts, proof of enrollment letters, and tax forms, you will likely find them here. Link here: https://ssc.adm.ubc.ca/
Check this site as often as you can! Information sessions, networking events, and workshops are posted throughout the year, so sign up early to secure your spot. When you’re ready to search for your summer internship, just upload your documents and start browsing through the job postings. Link here: https://sauder-ubc-csm.symplicity.com/
As an MBA student, you’re going to be working on a lot of group projects, and will need to book breakout rooms, but make sure you don’t reserve rooms for more than 3-hour slots. Also, if you don’t arrive in the first 10 minutes, you forfeit the right to that room, which can then be occupied by anyone: https://booking.sauder.ubc.ca/
You’ll use your UBC ID to print documents and class assignments, but here’s the link to reload your card so you can easily print anywhere on campus: https://payforprint.ubc.ca
