University of Manitoba – MBA
University of Manitoba – MBA
The Asper MBA mission is to develop your leadership commitment, management skills, and specialized business expertise so you may excel in business, community and life! Aligned to the mission, the program is made up of three powerfully crafted and integrated components:
- Executive Leadership – 7.5 credit hours of corporate leadership study and exploration
- Management Essentials – 40.5 credit hours of general management and business study
- Advanced Concentration – 12 credit hours of elective study in a selected specialization (Finance, Marketing, Human Resource Management and Organizational Behaviour, Supply Chain Management, Health Administration, Business-Government Relations or the Individual Interdisciplinary Concentration)
To complete the program, you must complete a minimum of 60 credit hours of on-campus study, with one credit being equivalent to ten hours of actual in-class time. Courses are normally 1.5 or 3.0 credit hours in length, depending on the nature of the subject and depth of study required. Courses are offered at least once per year, and routinely twice, and are scheduled to optimize on-campus time and course progression, particularly if undertaken full time. Individuals normally start the program in late August, but you can also start in January. The academic year is composed of three seasonal terms – Fall term (August-December), Winter term (January-March), and Spring term (April-July). On a full-time basis, you can complete the program in less than one year (if you start in August), while on a less than full-time basis you can take up to 6 years to complete, with 3 years being the normal part-time duration.
