Master of Business Administration (MBA) Program Details

  • The Schulich MBA teaches you to manage complexity, ambiguity and change as you examine business issues in a global environment using multiple perspectives.

    Customize your MBA: Flexible study options allow you to switch between full-time and part-time enrolment, take classes in downtown Toronto, or accelerate completion of your MBA in as little as eight months with advanced standing. Schulich offers you the opportunity to choose from a selection of 18 areas of specialization – more than any MBA program in Canada.

    Diverse perspectives: At every opportunity, Schulich faculty bring current issues into the classroom in the form of case studies, simulations and guest lectures. MBA students also go beyond the case method with curriculum that exposes you to applied learning.

    Real-world learning: The capstone course, the Strategy Field Study, is the ultimate in integrative management education. This six-month strategic consulting project allows you to apply your classroom learning and strategic thinking in a real-time business environment.
