Your EMBA Educational Journey
Attend class in person, online or a blend of both
The Telfer Executive MBA schedules classes weekly alternating between Friday and Saturday in a hybrid format: Join your professors and peers at our Centre for Executive Leadership in Ottawa or participate via our real-time online delivery platform.
This bi-modal format offers all the benefits of in-person learning and networking, with the flexibility of remote access when you need it. No matter where your schedule takes you, our hybrid model means you won't have to miss a beat.
Learn through integrative teaching models
Our industry-leading faculty are invested in your success. They integrate multiple teaching methods and approaches, providing you with an immersive, practical learning experience that challenges you to immediately apply what you learn the moment you begin your next workday.
Traditional lectures, guest speakers, and class discussions provide the theoretical framework that forms the foundation of your management training. Learn more about our faculty & staff.
Case studies and simulations introduce real-world, global business challenges, requiring you to work through the concepts yourself and make executive-level decisions, all in a safe learning environment.
Six consulting projects provide you with experiential learning opportunities. Collaborate with your EMBA team, applying everything you learn, delivering work for actual clients, and gaining practical consulting experience along the way.
Both personally and professionally, the Executive MBA has been the epitome of growth, fulfillment, and joy. The program is an exceptionally transformative journey that has provided me with the fundamental competencies, capabilities, credibility, and confidence to realize my potential and take on that next big career step. My summer business development project was absolutely integral to my success in obtaining this new role.
Drive transformation through experiential learning
Experiential learning has been at the heart of our program since the Telfer Executive MBA program was founded over 30 years ago. We take your education beyond the classroom and equip you with a variety of hands-on, real-world business and consulting experiences that are immediately applicable and highly valued in any senior management environment.

Benefit from team-based learning
The Telfer Executive MBA curriculum features a team-based approach to learning. When you begin the program, you are placed into a 4-to 6-person team that work for the duration of the program, including for your six consulting projects. This approach requires you to rely on the strengths and diverse experience of your peers and learn to build successful teams, while also reflecting and growing personally.
