At the Schulich School of Business, we have developed eight distinct specialized Masters programs that will equip you to thrive in this new business paradigm – one that our School illustrated in the groundbreaking book Re-Imagining Capitalism published in collaboration with McKinsey & Company. Our Masters degrees are designed to deliver in-depth functional and industry knowledge, strengthen your technical expertise and give you a clearly defined career advantage. Gain hands-on experience at one of our cutting-edge labs and research hubs at our new Rob and Cheryl McEwen Graduate Study & Research Building. The building is home to our Centres of Excellence where we are global leaders in industries of the future, including business analytics, infrastructure and artificial intelligence.
