Delivery Options

The TRU GDBA is one of the most flexible programs in Canada and removes the barriers that limit access to quality post-graduate education. Customize your GDBA studies to your learning style, your work demands and your personal commitments. You can choose to study on-campus, online or through a blended combination.

Starting in September, January and May of each year, the full-time GDBA program can be completed in as little as eight months.

Online courses

The GDBA courses are available online asynchronously through Open Learning every September, January and May. They are paced courses with deadlines set for assignments and other deliverables. As there are no requirements for real-time interaction with the Open Learning Faculty Members, course content is made available online for students to access when it best suits their schedules. Technological innovations provide options for a high level of online interaction with peers for collaborative work.

Online courses are only available to students residing in Canada. Dates for examinations are set by our office and are included in course registration information. Any course requirements for proctored exams can be completed via an external online invigilation service.

Blended learning

TRU gives you the flexibility to combine on-campus and online courses to fit your lifestyle. As noted above, the online courses are only available to students residing in Canada.

Part-time study

Part-time study options are available for both online and on-campus study (for domestic students).
