ACBSP Accredited

Welcome to Graduate Programs, Faculty of Management!

At VIU, our Graduate Programs within the Faculty of Management are ACBSP accredited. We provide a unique opportunity for students to study in a comfortable west-coast setting that taps into the fast paced environment of business and industry in our surrounding region.

Close student-professor relationships, combined with small class sizes create a unique experience that allows each student to individually tailor their education in the direction they wish their career to go. The opportunity for students to work closely with people from around the world builds understanding and international business competencies that foster a local feel combined with a global mindset.
