Curriculum at a Glance

The Building Blocks of Your Schulich MBA

Schulich’s innovative MBA programs are designed to support your personal interests and priorities as you chart your unique pathway to success. Whichever MBA program you choose, you will benefit from three core elements:

1Building a Solid Foundation


Hone your problem-solving skills as you develop your ability to analyze complex environments and think critically.

Expand your awareness of the triple bottom line and diverse perspectives with foundational courses in leadership and value creation.

Gain an understanding of all functional areas of business, including organizational behaviour, finance, accounting, and marketing from a managerial perspective.

Acquiring Real World Experience


Connect and integrate

all you’ve learned as you strategically analyze an organization over an 8-month period, with a team of students from diverse backgrounds.

Make actionable strategic recommendations to senior management on the direction their business should take.

The Strategy Field Study (601) was one of the most challenging aspects of the program. It’s one thing to learn about something in a classroom, but the 601 pushed us to question and apply those same concepts in a real-world setting. Through the 601 I not only gained valuable experience, but also built strong relationships that I know will last throughout my career.”
