How You Learn
We Teach Competencies
Our program takes a competency-based approach to teaching that puts you in the centre of the best possible learning environment.
Balance Theoretical and Practical
Our professors teach well-researched concepts about management that deliver proven results. When you grasp these ideas, you can critically assess current and emerging issues in either public or private organizations and implement strategies to ensure success.
We also use team learning. By collaborating closely with your peers—many with knowledge of business cultures that differ from yours—you gain an even deeper understanding of vital management concepts and practices and how they are applied in organizations today.
Be a Part of Small and Engaging Classes
Fifty students—that is the maximum number of students in each cohort of our program. We keep our overall cohort and individual class sizes small so that our program itself and every course within it are engaging, providing meaningful opportunities for you to participate thoughtfully with your professors and peers.
Learn in a Hybrid Format with the Professional MBA in French
For the professional MBA in French, if you reside in the National Capital Region, you are required to attend both in-person and online courses. If you live outside Ottawa, you may attend online distance learning courses at the same time as your on-campus peers.
Teaching strategies are based on the active participation of the students. The strategies typically used in the classroom (small group work, debates, problem solving, case studies) are also suitable for hybrid learning. In addition, the online learning platform tools that are used (chat, polls, whiteboard, virtual workspaces) facilitate remote engagement.
