The University of Northern British Columbia is one of Canada's best small universities. With a core campus in Prince George and regional campuses throughout northern BC, UNBC recognizes the importance of quality teaching, personal attention, ground-breaking research, and being relevant to the North.
The School is located on one of the most beautiful campuses in Canada. The stunning architecture incorporating rock, wood, and light mirrors the natural beauty of the mountains, forests, and rivers of central and northern British Columbia. We are small enough to encourage personal relationships among faculty, staff, and students, yet big enough to offer many challenges and opportunities. We encourage you to come and visit our campus.
What you will discover at UNBC is a remarkable and unique place to pursue higher education. The university has a friendly and personal atmosphere where students get to know one another and make life-long friends. Dialogue and respect for the views of others characterize the experience of students on the campus and in the classroom. Smaller class sizes offer students the opportunity to express their ideas and to learn from the ideas of others. Beyond the classroom, there are opportunities available at UNBC to get involved in many businesses, social, community service, and recreational activities. We strongly support co-operative education, which integrates academic study with practical work experience. These opportunities allow you to develop your interpersonal, communication, and leadership skills; indeed, to develop the skills that will be essential to business and personal success in the 21st Century.
We enable our students to fulfill their potential through our commitment to teaching innovation and excellence. We strive for a balance between teaching and research through bringing the latest research findings into the classroom. We ensure that our students understand the key issues confronting business today. Our dedication to teaching and research enables our students to be at the forefront of management thought and action.
