Graduate Business Council (GBC) EventsFollow the GBC on Twitter!
The Graduate Business Council (GBC) is the representative student body for both full-time and part-time students in all Schulich graduate degree programs. As the official student-faculty liaison, the GBC is responsible for protecting student interests through its representation on the Schulich School Faculty Council. The council also hosts social events including getaway weekends in September and January, an annual Graduate Formal, pub nights and Schulich representation at the MBA Games in January. Aside from social and athletic activities, the GBC serves as the student body’s voice to the faculty and administration.
Schulich’s clubs provide a valuable space for you to explore your business interests and develop skills for leadership.
From Canadian mining to investment banking to sustainable enterprise, our exciting variety of groups allow students to pursue a broad spectrum of relevant, timely interests. These organizations are a fantastic way to meet students, to mobilize efforts in important areas of business, and to assume leadership roles in executing guest lectures, expert panels and conferences.

Graduate Ambassador Program
The Graduate Ambassador Program offers graduate students a unique opportunity to promote an enhanced student experience for prospective, recently admitted and current students while developing personal, professional and leadership skills. Graduate Ambassadors are a select group of current student leaders who share their passion for being a Schulich student with the community.
Who can be a Graduate Ambassador?
- Current students in one of the Schulich master’s level programs (MBA, Accelerated MBA, IMBA, MBA/JD, MAcc, MBAN, MF, MMgt, MREI ) enrolled in any cohort at Keele or Nadal campus
- Students who are members of: GBC General Council, GBC Student Clubs, Student GBC Affiliates (MBA/JD Joint Program Association, SOSA, YCG, YSEC, etc.), any Student Task Force
- Passionate students willing to connect with prospective, incoming, current students, guests and alumni
Activities include: hosting webinars, leading building tours and coffee chats; speaking at information sessions and graduate student fairs; participating in open houses and class visits, and contributing to the Schulich GradBlog and social media pages.
Graduate Ambassadors are led by Executive Ambassadors, a graduate team hired within the division of Student Services and International Relations. This executive team is responsible for recruiting, training and evaluating Graduate Ambassadors, and reporting on the delivery of all ambassador activities. As an Executive Ambassador, you’ll have the opportunity to manage a large group of volunteers, execute events, and make meaningful recommendations that will shape the program. For hiring details and eligibility requirements, watch for Executive Ambassador job postings on the GradBlog at the start of each term.
