Take the next step in your career

Start working towards your MBA

With courses that are adapted for working professionals, you will take what you learn in the classroom and immediately begin applying it in the workplace. The Blended Learning Part-Time MBA is a balanced approach to completing an MBA for the busy professional. Delivering course content both online and through weekend residencies, the blended approach offers the most convenient way for you to complete your MBA while continuing to advance your career.

What to Expect

Courses are taught online and in person during weekend residencies, which means you’ll be required to attend class at the Ron Joyce Centre for three weekends a term; and as part of a cohort, you will have a greater opportunity to network and collaborate with your peers.

If you have questions or concerns about the admission process, curriculum or the program experience, we encourage you to read our Frequently Asked Questions for more information.

Experienced and Diverse Cohort

Mirroring the structure of a professional work environment, you will collaborate, share ideas, and benefit from the diversity in backgrounds, skills and thoughts.

Blended Delivery

Half of the program is offered online and the remaining is offered over three weekends each term. Balance your life, travel less and get more out of your MBA.

Integrated Learning

Work-integrated assignments mean that some of your MBA coursework will require an applied setting. This work may be completed at your place of employment or in the community.

Thinking about applying?

If you’re interested in applying to the Blended Learning Part-Time MBA, here are the requirements to be considered for the program:

  • A competitive GPA in the final two years of your undergraduate degree
  • A professional resume, with a minimum of 4 years of relevant full-time work experience
