The Goodman School of Business offers two programs leading to the Master of Business Administration degree: MBA and MBA (International Student Pathway). Students who have obtained their degree outside of Canada may apply to either program. The Master of Business Administration (MBA) program is designed to provide individuals the opportunity to obtain an advanced professional business education that will enable them to realize their full potential and career goals. The program provides students with advanced management education, including advanced knowledge relating to professional business designations. This objective is carried out in the program by emphasizing the development and integration of the broad-based, functional business knowledge needed to advance an individual's management career. At the same time, students are provided with the opportunity to develop in-depth specialized knowledge in a selected field. A total of twenty half-credit courses are required to complete degree requirements (with the exception of the Accounting specialization which requires twenty-four half-credit courses.) The program consists of a series of fourteen required half-credit courses and an additional six half-credit elective courses with a maximum of three research based courses. Full-time students normally complete the MBA over four terms. A co-op work option allows students to apply their knowledge to private and public business settings and to develop highly specialized professional skills. The work experience, along with valuable networking contacts, makes a difference to students when preparing to enter the competitive career market.
The ability to demonstrate relevant professional experience will be given individual consideration
