The Master of Business Administration (MBA) program focuses on producing managers and leaders who can meet current market challenges, with an emphasis on decision making in an uncertain environment; interpersonal and communication skills; ethics and social responsibility; and globalization. The program also caters to those wanting to develop their academic and applied research skills through its course-based, graduate thesis or graduate project options. The completion of a thesis can serve as a stepping-stone to a PhD program and an eventual career in academia or consulting.

This MBA program is unique among Canadian universities in that the same program is offered in the campus-based and online modalities on a full-time or part-time basis. This provides students with the ability to adopt the learning style that best suits them and to adjust their education to accommodate their busy work and personal schedules. Through the use of innovative online learning technologies, the MBA ensures all students receive the same rich learning experience regardless of modality with a focus on quality interaction among fellow students, faculty and industry professionals.

The courses in the MBA were specifically selected to develop the knowledge and applied skills needed to achieve success at the management and executive levels of any organization in any field.
