If I have completed another degree, can I transfer units to the MBA?

At the time of admission, students may transfer units to be granted exemptions 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 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 transferred units that can be granted as exemption or advanced standing is 24, and all students must complete a minimum of 30 units of MBA courses following admission to be awarded the degree. No exemption or advanced standing will be granted for courses completed more than five years ago or for which the grade was lower than B (70 percent).

At this time, you cannot transfer undergraduate units as no advanced standing is granted for undergraduate courses or work experience when applying to the program.
