Program Description

The GDBA program ensures all students have the foundational knowledge and skills needed to be successful at the MBA level. Students may be exempted from one or more of the six courses in the GDBA program, depending on their educational background. Once the program is successfully completed, students can advance to TRU's MBA. Business graduates will generally receive advanced standing for all six courses and can begin their MBA studies immediately.

This program may interest you if you simply want an overview of business management. If you are a professional in medicine and dentistry, for example, you can study management at the graduate level to gain an enhanced understanding of how to operate your business or practice.
