MBA in Global Leadership
Upcoming Start Dates: November 25, January 6
Why this program is needed
It is imperative that the leadership teams of virtually every company collectively recognize that they are managing their organization in a complex global network of suppliers, competitors, partners and customers - with all of the threats 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.
For whom this program is designed
Our online MBA with a focus in Global Leadership is designed for early-career professionals and managers of medium to large sized companies who aspire to lead their companies towards much higher performance in their global networks. It begins with coverage of fundamental management essentials such as financial, analytical and decision-making skills, and knowledge of an organization's core functions and interactions. The program goes much further than that. Its core focus is on leadership techniques, especially collaborative leadership in the complex cross-boundary global context, both within the company and between companies.
Our goal is to prepare early-career professionals and managers for senior leadership positions, for success in those positions, all without interrupting their career momentum. To accomplish our educational goal we employ a variety of educational tools and techniques, including some of the most advanced online teaching and learning applications available, and a carefully designed suite of courses delivered in a focused and flexible schedule. MBA program students are exposed to additional per-course-credit hours to allow for broader and more detailed instruction.
There are fourteen courses: ten foundation courses, three specialization courses including one elective, and one capstone integration project. Courses are completed in an eleven-week fixed-agenda format. If courses are taken in a typical eleven-week fixed-agenda format, the duration of the MBA program is three years, six months. Students are also able to double-up on courses (depending on availability), which shortens the program duration.
The Online Experience
To maximize the global learning experience throughout the program our students will participate in "live" seminars and/or conferences with experienced leaders from global organizations. Our students and faculty are not limited by geographical boundaries, providing a new educational experience that allows learners to think with a global perspective while working on case studies and projects with other colleagues from around the world.
The program is also designed to integrate knowledge across subject areas. Students keep a journal/portfolio throughout their program, accumulating projects and assignments as they progress through the program and using this prior work as resource material for their final project. There are also specific portfolio activities and assignments throughout the program where learners are asked to combine or compare knowledge across courses.
Individuals wishing to gain admission to the MBA in Global Leadership degree program will have an undergraduate degree and at least one year of full-time work experience.
Tuition for the Master of Business Administration Degree Program is $19,000 CDN. Tuition is payable up-front or course-at-a-time. Students may pay tuition course-at-a-time or by installment.
Post-Degree Diploma Credit Transfer
Students holding a one-year Post-Degree Diploma from a Canadian Public Community College are eligible for a unique MBA credit transfer. Applicants could receive a maximum of two (2) course credits towards an MBA, reducing the program tuition and duration!
