The Master of Engineering Leadership (MEL) and Master of Health Leadership and Policy (MHLP) degrees provide structured opportunities to learn from your professional peers through class discussions and collaboration on group projects.
Peer-based learning is built into both the technical and business classes. While the technical courses enable you to learn from the experience and insight of other professionals in your industry sector, the business classes take this one step further to include students from all MEL and MHLP programs with their backgrounds in engineering, health care, architecture and urban planning.
Depending on the specific MEL or MHLP program, anywhere from 30% to 50% of the curriculum is made up of business and leadership courses taught through UBC Sauder’s Robert H. Lee Graduate School. All MEL and MHLP students take these classes together, and they also come together for the ongoing professional development and networking opportunities offered throughout the year. As a student, this means you will be learning alongside – and networking with – professionals with a broad array of experience across a range of related disciplines, from advanced materials manufacturing to urban systems, from clean energy engineering to high performance buildings, and from seniors care to clinical education. (See the full list of MEL and MHLP programs.)
