Overview

The University of Guelph MBA applies contemporary management concepts and strategies to industries where the University has distinctive capability.  Upon admission, participants choose to concentrate their MBA studies in one of three broad industry groups:  Food and Agribusiness Management, Hospitality and Tourism Management or Sustainable Commerce.  The University of Guelph MBA program includes a core group of courses that build and develop key managerial skills, and specialization courses that allow participants to apply concepts and skills to management situations in a particular sector.  Case studies are widely used.  Participants complete their program with a Major Research Project or by taking two additional on-line courses.

The MBA is designed to be flexible enough to allow participants to develop their managerial potential and academic standing without having to interrupt their careers.  The innovative and interactive on-line learning experience is enhanced by three brief, intensive, in-classroom courses that provide participants and faculty with the opportunity for face-to-face interaction.  The program begins annually in May and can be completed within two years.

Program Features

  • Accessibility & Flexibility - The program is uniquely designed and delivered.  Leading-edge interactive technology provides students with unparalleled flexibility and accessibility.
  • Managerial Development - The MBA provides students with the relevant skills and knowledge to move their careers forward in an increasingly competitive global environment.

Erosion Assessment Goes Geospatial

While managing soil microbes might be the newest frontier to improving soil health, one thing has not changed: you cannot improve soil you no longer have! Minimizing erosion is the first step in a soil health management plan.

Farming in the cloud

A digital cloud, where critical farm management information is stored in cloud-based systems, means all data across all platforms are updated at the same time.

Wheat: Innovation through Collaboration

Innovation is a competitive advantage for Canadian farmers. It is through ongoing innovation that Canadian wheat exports will compete with the likes of the Black Sea. In the period of 2015-2018, Canada has consistently been in the top 10 wheat producing countries in the world and within the top 5 wheat exporting countries in the world.

Huge Backlog Pressures Slaughter Hog Values

The Director of Risk Management with HAMS Marketing Services says a massive year over year increase in the number of hogs available in the U.S. for slaughter continues to pressure North American live hog values. USDA released its quarterly hogs and pigs report last week.

Pre-Harvest Glyphosate

Keep it Clean is reminding Canadian canola, cereal and pulse growers that careful management of preharvest glyphosate applications can help to ensure crops meet the needs of our domestic and export customers. Applying pre-harvest glyphosate too early can result in unacceptable product residues in the grain which can create market risk.
