Ryerson University MBA Global Program Structure

MBA Global

In the Ryerson University MBA Global program at Ted Rogers School of Management, students gain an inclusive business management education that incorporates academic theory with practical and research-based learning styles.

MBA In Management of Technology and Innovation

The Ryerson MBA in the Management of Technology and Innovation (MBA-MTI) program provides graduates with skills in problem-solving, critical thinking, communication and collaboration.

It may take longer if they are required to complete Foundation Courses, or if they choose to take less than two courses each semester. The part-time course load is one to two courses per semester.


Students in both MBA programs will take core classes as well as electives in an area of interest. Students will take part in class-based learning as well as practical, hands-on experiences. The Global MBA emphasizes the skills needed to work within a global markets and to become a leader and innovator on a global scale. Technology MBA students will learn the skills needed to become a leader within the tech industry from a business perspective.

MBA Global students have the option to specialize in a variety of areas, or they can choose to do a general specialization by selecting electives from different specializations. Specialization areas include international business, real estate, human resources management, mining management and corporate social responsibility, and marketing.

Students may also choose to do specializations from the MBA Management of Technology and
Innovation (MTI) program in the area of media management, entrepreneurship, business analytics, data security, and others.
