EMBA in Occupational Health and Safety Leadership

Upcoming Start Dates: January 6, March 3

Welcome to Canada’s first Executive MBA in Occupational Health & Safety (OHS) Leadership! This visionary new program has been jointly developed and is supported by the Canadian Society of Safety Engineering (CSSE).  *CSSE CHSC-certified members will be granted a 1-course advanced standing, and are not required to take the Level B elective.

Why This Program Is Needed

The role of the occupational health and safety (OHS) unit in an organization has been steadily and significantly rising in prominence over the last several decades, in many organizations being transferred into the Operations function. This is well-deserved, as the evidence clearly indicates that well-designed and well-managed OHS programs contribute to a much healthier, more satisfied and more productive workforce, coincidentally with a significant financial upside for the organization. However, many, if not most, managers of OHS units have risen to their management positions without any prior post-secondary education in management, and face the dual challenges of a potential performance deficit, and reduced probability of promotion into executive ranks. Thus, this program has been developed to address these challenges, by improving the post-secondary educational landscape for upwardly-mobile OHS managers and executives.  ... [-]

EMBA in Social Enterprise Leadership

Upcoming Start Dates: October 28, January 6

Why this program is needed 

A Social Enterprise (SE) is generally understood to be a business operated or owned by a non-profit organization, established at least partly to supplement its public funding and charitable donations. The growth of the Social Enterprise sector is strong, and the need for capable and seasoned leaders even stronger. But leading such businesses is arguably more complex than leading a for-profit business - rather than having a single focus on profitability, Social Enterprise executives must achieve a “blended value” return on investment, balancing sustainable profitability with a social mission. Thus, in response to the growing demand for SE leaders, and the complexity of SE leadership, our online Executive MBA program has been developed with the advice of some of Canada’s leading practitioners to meet the sector’s specific needs....

EMBA in Innovation Leadership

Upcoming Start Dates October 28, January 6

Why This Program Is Needed 

In today's global business environment, every part of an organization must run in perfect alignment and at peak efficiency in order to meet the demands imposed by relentless global competitors. However, the same organization must also be able to regenerate itself to seek bold new directions that offer new opportunities for motivation and growth, be they new product categories, new markets, new partnerships, new processes, or new organizational structures. For example, think of Apple's foray into portable MP3 music players with their famous iPod, which represented a substantial departure from their main lines of computer hardware and software; yet which, successfully done, garnered over 90% share of the MP3 market within three years of its launch, at premium prices. ...

EMBA (Executive MBA) in Global Leadership

Upcoming Start Dates October 28, January 6

Why This Program Is Needed 

It is imperative that the leadership teams of virtually every company must collectively recognize that they are managing their organization in a complex global network of suppliers, competitors, partners and customers - with all of the risks and opportunities entailed. In our view, this global context is not to be feared. Rather, it must be embraced, and our leadership and management teams must be educated and prepared accordingly.
