Welcome to the New DeGroote MBA

Your Education with Purpose Starts Here

MBA Student at the Ron Joyce CentreThe DeGroote MBA continues to lead executive education in Canada with an innovative new curriculum designed to keep our graduates ahead of the curve.

DeGroote’s newly redesigned MBA will provide an integrated classroom/real-word experience and address current industry needs and opportunities. More importantly, it will deliver education that will transform business and society. This program is initially being launched for full-time and co-op students with plans to introduce a cohort-based part-time program in 2018.

DeGroote’s Co-op MBA was the first of its kind over forty years ago, and is still the flagship of the school’s MBA program. This will not change, and DeGroote will continue to welcome students with a wide variety of undergraduate backgrounds wishing to gain work and classroom experience to develop a successful career.

With a more dynamic and interactive classroom experience that is team taught in order to integrate across disciplines, our program focuses on learning business essentials through modern integrated cases, and will include discussion of current market topics.

Brand new features (of redesigned first year curriculum):

  • Cohort classes during the first year that run from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday to Thursday (night classes will continue to be offered for second year courses and part-time students taking first year courses) with networking, career advancement and professional development every Friday and occasional evenings throughout the week.
  • Five Foundation weeks will expose students to the full spectrum of business within the themes of Analysis, Data & Decisions, Application, and Reflection.
  • Nine weeks of five core courses based on themes and integrated cases for more effective learning.
  • Three-week integrated project during second term at the end of first year.
