Collaborative

Mirroring the structure of a professional work environment, you will collaborate, share ideas, and reap the rewards of a value of diversity in backgrounds, skills and thoughts.

Convenient

Half of the program is offered online and the remaining is offered over three weekends each term. 

Balance your life, travel less and get more out of your MBA.

Practical

Work-integrated assignments mean that some of your MBA coursework will require an applied setting.

This work may be completed at your place of employment or in the community.

The program design demonstrates that DeGroote understands the needs and challenges of today’s business professionals. The blended learning model offers the best of both worlds: Students have the opportunity to engage in immersive learning with their peers on residency weekends, while also benefiting from the convenience of online learning. Another distinct advantage of the part-time program is being able to immediately apply classroom learnings to the workplace. I have very much enjoyed my MBA journey thus far, and look forward to even more valuable learnings.

What to Expect

You will be part of a cohort, which allows for greater networking and collaboration among peers.

Courses will be taught online and in person during weekend residencies. You’ll be required to attend class at the Ron Joyce Centre for three weekends a term.
