Program Structure

The curriculum for Queen’s MBA is very flexible and can be built to meet your career goals. There are two modules – the Foundations Level, which provides an overview of business fundamentals, and Mastery, which enables you to choose an area of specialization. Upon completion of the MBA, you may then choose to advance to the Expert level by pursuing a second Master’s degree in this area of specialization.

  • The program curriculum provides a broad understanding of the global business environment, international business and cross-cultural management challenges.
  • Because we take an integrated approach to teaching, you will develop an understanding of the impact of all business decisions across the organization and beyond.

A January Start Date

Our new program will start in January. What does this mean for you? It means that you will:

  • Be among the first MBA graduates into the job market
  • Have more time to prepare for job interviews in the fall
  • Have a broader selection of international exchange opportunities
  • Be able to offer employers flexibility in your starting date
  • Have the opportunity to participate in internship opportunities the following January
  • Be able to take advantage of 16-month dual degree opportunities

    The Foundations curriculum is comprised of ten courses plus an integrative project that runs through the entire six months.
    • Financial Accounting
    • Economics & Industry Analysis
    • Finance
    • International Business
    • Leading with Integrity
    • Marketing
    • Management Information Systems (MIS)
    • Operations Management
    • Business Analytics
    • Professional Skills
    • Business & Corporate Strategy
    • Integrative Project (6 months)
    Specialization (Second 6 Months)

    For the Specialization module, you may choose from several areas of specialization, for which you will complete a series of core courses and elective courses. Upon completion of this module you will have earned a Queen’s MBA and a Graduate Certificate in your area of specialization.

    You may choose not to specialize and select courses from multiple specializations to complete your MBA. However, only those who complete a specialization will receive a Graduate Certificate.
    Expert (Double Degree)
    The Expert Level enables you to apply some of your MBA credits to a second Queen’s Master’s degree.

    Students completing Foundations, Specialization and Expert earn a Queen’s MBA and an additional Master’s degree

Pre-MBA Warm-Up

Queen's School of Business is pleased to offer pre-MBA "warm-up" sessions in five quantitative areas:

  • Accounting
  • Finance
  • Statistics
  • Manipulation of Excel
  • Strategic Thinking & Communication of Business Programs

These not-for-credit one-day sessions are offered to incoming students before the MBA program begins. These sessions are optional, and you may enroll in any or all of them. At a cost of $200 per session, they represent an excellent opportunity to ease your transition into the program. You may register for these sessions when you sign back your offer of admission.

Pre-MBA English Language Program

The 8-week pre-MBA QBridge Program is an intensive English language program that develops communication skills for MBA students. The program addresses all four language skills: reading, writing, listening and speaking. The program also focuses on the expectations and communication conventions of a Canadian academic institution including group work, class participation, critical thinking, and academic integrity.
