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.
