Driven to meet your needs and schedule
You can take our program over one or two years.
Intensive (one year): You will follow a rigorous schedule in which classes and scheduled program activities are held mostly during the day on weekdays.
Professional (two years): Taking our program over two years enables you to stay on the job. You will attend classes one day during the week and Saturday and/or Sunday every other week.
Content that enables you to deliver results
We have designed and organized our program according to the four essential competencies of high-performing managers in business today: strategize, work with data, work with people and deliver results. The courses that build these competencies are delivered in six distinctive course blocks.
You can customize your course load to reflect your preferred career path. Choose from a variety of elective courses organized by theme, such as finance, entrepreneurship and innovation, management consulting, and business analytics. You are free to choose courses from all four categories or to concentrate on a specific area.
The best possible environment in which to learn
Our program takes a competency-based approach to teaching that puts you in the centre of the best possible environment in which to learn. Our professors teach proven concepts about management. Team learning enables you to learn from your peers, many of whom come from countries around the world. Our overall cohort and individual class sizes are small so that our program itself and every course within it provide meaningful opportunities for you to engage thoughtfully with your professors and peers.
Connecting you to accomplished professors conducting world-leading research
Our professors are seasoned teachers and expert researchers. They conduct their research through a variety of research units and strategic research clusters centred on business analytics and performance, finance and accounting, entrepreneurship and innovation, and health transformation.
Through their research, our professors uncover relevant insights into the major challenges facing today’s leaders and managers. These insights enable them to navigate through current problems and to anticipate and devise solutions to tomorrow’s challenges, particularly in strategic areas such as business analytics and performance, and innovation and entrepreneurship.
A dynamic program among the best in the world
We never sit idle, continuously improving our program. In particular, we regularly update courses and content to reflect the practices of contemporary organizations and the latest developments in international business.
