At the Levene Graduate School of Business in Regina, you can do a traditional MBA or pursue a specialty MBA in engineering management, international business or public safety management. The school offers an accelerated program, meaning applicants without an undergraduate degree in business must complete a postgraduate “business foundations” diploma prior to admission.
Classes are offered on campus, online or in the evenings; some are also available through intensive, week-long sessions. Doing the program full-time takes 12 months—24 if you choose the part-time route. The University of Regina also has a well-established co-op program, and graduate students can complete up to three work terms over the course of their studies.
There are six mandatory components to a Levene MBA, including an integrative practicum during which students observe an organization and apply knowledge gained in the classroom to develop recommendations and a strategic plan for improvement. Students must also participate in a study tour abroad, working on consulting projects with local businesses and fellow students at a host school. The next international study trip will be hosted by Mexico’s IPADE Business School.
Students in the specialized streams have additional course requirements: engineering management students study business law and economics for practising engineers; international business students examine international finance management; those in the public safety management stream take courses in risk assessment and the economics of public safety.
Levene is one of the few schools in Canada that has a partnership with the online branch of Harvard Business School, HBX. This alliance allows Levene students to take up to three HBX courses, transfer the credit to their MBA program and earn a Harvard certificate at the same time.
