Kwantlen Polytechnic University

Overview

The profile requirements of internationally employed managers have changed dramatically in recent years.  The IUBH School of Business and Management has recognised this development as reflected in the future-oriented training it offers to interested young people as the first private, state-recognised university operating exclusively in the service sector.

With our attractive Bachelor and Master’s degree courses we want to set new standards for the new generation of management.  Our programmes are characterised by the effective transfer of subject-specific knowledge and soft skills in order to prepare our graduates for challenging management task.  The courses offered are geared fully to the expectations of international companies.
