Boldly Different.

For over 25 years, we’ve been doing things differently. From our online learning expertise to professors who know you by name, this is an education like no other.

ONLINE SINCE DAY ONE.

Sophia Palahicky  Associate Director, Centre for Teaching and Educational Technologies

As the Associate Director of the Centre for Teaching and Educational Technologies (CTET) and an online instructor at Royal Roads, Sophia knows all about paving the way in online learning. And with a well-established online learning platform, she says what stands out now, more than ever, is the dynamic community that brings our leading education to life: our faculty, staff and students.

CEOs FOR CLASSMATES.

Deb Bryant  Chief Executive Officer, YWCA Metro Vancouver; Graduate, Master of Arts in Leadership and Training

As a student at Royal Roads, Deb studied alongside seasoned professionals in industries from healthcare to government and education to resource industries, creating a diverse network of peers to learn with, and from. She says entering a master’s program, mid-career, was a turning point; the advanced exploration of theory and the values-based leadership modeled in her program continue to serve her today.

LEARNING BASED ON LIFE.

Tim Kituri  Program Manager, Master of Global Management; Graduate, Master of Arts in Intercultural and International Communication; Graduate Certificate, Executive Coaching

Tim is an RRU student-turned-program manager. He draws from his time as a student to mentor, support and challenge those chasing their goals today. Working with the faculty and program staff, Tim ensures that students have the space they need to apply their learning, push themselves and draw inspiration from the community surrounding them.

SEEING LIFE AS A CREDENTIAL.

Simon Chiu  Executive Assistant to the Vice President, External Affairs, Kwantlen Polytechnic University; Current student, Master of Arts in Leadership

Simon, a current student at Royal Roads, embodies the spirit that life is also an education. Have a full-time job and an incomplete degree at the time of applying to Royal Roads, he was grateful when RRU saw value in his unique past. He says RRU’s approach to learning recognizes that students of the future aren’t just those with previous academic qualifications, but also those with life experience.

PROFS WHO KNOW YOUR NAME.

Matt Dodd  Professor, School of Environment and Sustainability

Matt has been at Royal Roads for over 25 years and, in that time, he’s learned a lot of names. He credits the small class sizes and cohort model for enabling him to get to know each student personally, in order to support them professionally – often well past graduation. He values dialogue, has an open-door policy, and is always just a phone call away.

USING YOUR CAREER AS THE CURRICULUM.

Felix Louis  Graduate, Master of Business Administration in Executive Management – Management Consulting

Felix chose the RRU MBA program as it specialized in management consulting – aligning with his goal to build and accelerate businesses. While in the program, Felix was able to use those career goals to help shape his education, allowing him to grow both as a professional and as an individual. He credits his MBA degree and RRU’s real-life approach to business education for getting him where he is today.
