MBA program structure

Phase One

*Graduate Diploma in Management (GDM)

Six foundational courses build upon each other and are capped by a week-long comprehensive examination.

This exam is case-based and requires students to integrate and apply all they have learned to this point.

*The GDM and Phase One of the MBA are the same.

Phase Two

Four core advanced courses solidify students’ holistic, organizational view of the senior management function.

In this phase, students also complete 18 elective credits, either in the form of six* elective courses, or three* elective courses plus an applied project.

At least one elective must be taken in residence. In residence electives are held in locations across Canada and internationally.

*Some in residence electives are six credits and can be taken in lieu of two, three credit electives.
