Rotman School of Management – University of Toronto - Morning/Evening MBA
University of Toronto Morning/Evening MBA Program Structure
The Toronto Rotman Part-time MBA holds classes from 7 to 8:59 a.m. on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. This MBA is ideal for working professionals who want to advance their career while still working full-time. The program starts in August and can be completed in 32 months.
With a curriculum much like the full-time and Morning MBA programs, the Evening MBA program is also a part-time program that holds classes held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., twice per week. It also starts in August and can be completed in 32 months.
Students enrolled in either of the part-time programs will experience the same learning style that is offered to full-time MBA students. They will take classes twice a week, allowing them to keep up with their work schedules. The program begins in August, and students will take part in an orientation week before starting the main program.
The program begins in the first year with core courses such as Managerial Negotiations, Statistics for Management and Managing Customer Value, which help build a solid foundation of business knowledge. In the second year, students may choose to specialize in a particular area of interest or develop a broader skill set through elective courses. There are more than 90 elective courses and over 15 major areas that students can partake in in order to customize their MBA experience.
Rotman offers no exemptions for courses completed toward another undergraduate or graduate degree.
