Exemptions, Retained Units and Advanced Standing

At the time of admission, students may be granted exemptions, retained units or advanced standing for graduate courses in management previously completed as a regular student in a Canadian MBA program or similar program accredited by the American Association of Colleges and Schools of Business (AACSB), or equivalent.

Exemptions, retained units and advanced standing may also be granted for graduate courses previously completed in a University of Ottawa interdisciplinary program in which the Telfer School of Management is involved.

The maximum number of units that can be granted as exemptions, retained units or advanced standing is 24, and all students must complete a minimum of 30 units of MBA or ADM courses following admission to be granted the degree.

No exemption, retained units or advanced standing will be granted for courses completed more than five years earlier or for which the grade was lower than B (70 percent).
