Understanding management and business in an international context is a requirement in today’s global economy.
Schulich’s exchange program offers an ever-expanding number of opportunities for graduate students to study abroad. Formal reciprocal business school-to-business school partnerships allow both domestic and international students from Schulich to spend one term studying abroad at a partner school.
The benefits of participating in an exchange are numerous:
- exposure to new perspectives and a more global outlook
- the expansion of career options
- an increase of cross-cultural communication skills
- the development of language proficiency skills
- build a global network
“No matter where you choose to travel to for your exchange program, it will be a truly unique and remarkable experience. The experiences you have will benefit you in all your future endeavours and the adventure itself will be one you will never forget.”
Any student enrolled in the MBA or IMBA program may apply to study abroad on a full-time (12-15 SSB credits) or a part-time (3-7.5 SSB credits) basis. Students changing their status to/from full-time or part-time status, must submit an Enrolment Status Change Form prior to registering for the exchange term.
To be eligible for a term abroad, students must:
- Complete all 5000-level required courses prior to departure and a minimum of 24 credits at Schulich. Students with advanced standing should consult the Graduate Student Handbook for eligibility requirements.
- Attain a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of at least 5 (B) on those 24 credits.
Students wishing to apply for a Summer 2018, Fall 2018 or Winter 2019 exchange should attend an Exchange Information Session. Please refer to the Upcoming Events section for dates and times.

Exchange and the 601
