UBC MHLP - Have you considered it?

Deciding to go back to school is a big decision. You have many options to choose from – but you’re most likely considering a specialized master’s or an MBA.

Now there’s no need to choose. The University of British Columbia, one of the world’s top 40 universities, presents the 12-month Master of Health Leadership and Policy (MHLP) degree. This offers the best of both worlds, combining graduate-level classes in the UBC School of Nursing with business courses through UBC Sauder School of Business.

You’ll graduate with updated clinical knowledge and a foundation in business, strategy and leadership. And you’ll have the credentials and experience to confidently assume leadership roles and increased responsibility.

But is this the right program for you? Read more on our website to learn more about what you can expect and the types of students we are looking for.

The short version is this: We’ve designed this master’s degree specifically for professionals who have several years of relevant healthcare experience and are already taking on leadership roles.

We’re looking for motivated individuals who are ready for an intense 12-month hybrid program where they’ll explore the latest issues in their industry while acquiring foundational business concepts and enhancing their leadership skills.

Ask our alumni and they’ll tell you that the MHLP are challenging programs. They’ll also tell you that they are uniquely rewarding and highly relevant for today’s professional.

Apply before our second-round deadline of August 1 and we’ll tell you by September 1 if you’ll be invited to join the class of 2020.
