Welcome from Dean Robert Helsley

dean helsley

This is a unique time to attend the UBC Sauder School of Business and I hope you share my excitement about the upcoming school year. While classes will not look or feel the same as in previous years, our faculty members and staff are looking forward to providing our students with a transformational and stimulating academic experience. As a family member or guardian of a UBC Sauder student, you are a vital part of the school’s community of support.

Our Parent & Family Network is all about you. We believe an informed and supportive family plays an important role in our students’ success. Through resources like the UBC Sauder Parent & Family Guidebook, you can learn about the school and empower your student to take personal responsibility for their social and academic choices.

We continue to seek new ways to demonstrate our commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion and foster an environment where everyone can thrive. Our hope is that our students will carry these values forward into their professional and civic lives.

We are excited to work together with you to help our students explore their interests, discover their many talents and reach their full potential.
