When Kim Zatlyn sought out the fast-paced world of tech, she used the UBC MBA as a launch pad to get her there.
By any measure, Kim was successful. She was thriving in the fast-paced, competitive world of advertising.
“I was working with everything from the largest companies in Canada to smaller, local not-for-profits,” she says. “Advertising gave me a strong foundation in marketing and exposure to a broad range of businesses.”
Kim thrives on adrenaline. Even on her days off, she pushes her limits, spending her downtime trying the latest, most demanding workouts. This lightning-fast pace was something she was looking for in her career.
“I knew I ultimately wanted to get into tech,” she says. “I just didn’t know what the possibilities were or where I would fit in.”
To gain the skills she would need, she turned to UBC Sauder’s MBA program, offered by the Robert H. Lee Graduate School.
