"The MBA program at Vancouver Island University was one of the most dynamic and enjoyable periods of my life. I learned an incredible amount of material and skills, but also earned about myself and came into my own. Moreover, the School's environment allowed and encouraged me not only to work with my classmates, but to fully enjoy and discover those who will be my lifelong friends from all over the world"

"I am excited for the future business students entering, or enrolled in, the Faculty of Management as they will have this essential venue in which to attain a formal business education, earning prestige for themselves, their families, for VIU and for the community beyond these walls. Building an employment pool in your own backyard makes sense, solves problems and provokes innovation. It is a strategic investment."
