Postgraduate Overview

University Canada West offers two distinct graduate programs to students.

Master of Business Administration

This ACBSP-accredited Master of Business Administration (MBA) program from UCW will prepare you for success on the global stage. You will learn how to take challenging situations in stride, apply pragmatic solutions to problems, and ultimately drive the success of your organization through informed decision-making.

The program progresses through four tiers, a total of 45 credits, that develop your knowledge and skillset so that you are able to handle increasingly complex problems. Team activities are an intrinsic part of the MBA, developing team skills for modern business and providing a collegial learning environment.

The MBA degree program has been refined to allow you to acquire more specific knowledge and skills in one of three areas by choosing their 3 elective courses from one of the following subject areas: Marketing, Finance or Leadership. The program includes the option to do a major research project designed to showcase your newly learned skills in a real-world setting. Additionally, students may take an optional work experience module.

MBA Foundation

If you have an undergraduate CGPA between C+ (2.33) and B- (2.99) and have one of the additional requirements or if you meet the academic CGPA of 3.0 but do not have any of the additional requirements, you may be offered the option of completing a set of four MBA Foundation courses that can be taken in one term, to prepare you for the MBA program. To continue into the MBA program, you must earn a grade of B (GPA of 3.0) or better on each Foundation course.
