Schulich School of Business – York University - Full-Time MBA

Schulich Full-Time MBA Program Structure

The Schulich full-time MBA at York University offers a flexibility of options to complete your MBA in either 16 or 20 months. If you have an undergraduate business degree and work experience, you may also qualify for the eight-month Accelerated MBA. You can start your full-time MBA studies in September or January.

Curriculum

Schulich full-time courses are offered on the Keele Campus, and first year courses are also available full-time downtown. Underlying all pedagogy is an emphasis on developing managerial effectiveness. Overall, there is an emphasis on student involvement and participation in the classroom, and on practical managerial application. Many courses involve real-time, real-life, in-company projects of one sort or another.

There is no overall teaching format, as the organization, pedagogy and style of classes is determined solely by the most effective way to teach a particular course. Many course instructors make extensive use of case studies, while others do not. Other approaches to delivering courses include in-class presentations, role-playing exercises and visiting speakers and business leaders.

The normal full-time load is nine to 15 credit-hours of courses per term (maximum course load is 18 credit-hours per term). The program length requires a minimum of 16 months over four consecutive terms; an average of 20 months with summer off; or a maximum of 24 months over six terms. There is also an accelerated option where students can complete their study in 12-18 months.

Students with an oral proficiency in a second language and an interest in international work terms may wish to consider an application to the International MBA (IMBA) program.
