Memorial’s specialized program in social enterprise and entrepreneurship is the only full-time MBA in Canada focused on issues of sustainability. It encourages students to think about social and environmental challenges, not just business ones.
Courses are tailored toward managing social enterprises, and offers lessons on accounting, human resources and information systems in that context. As part of the program, students must also complete an internship and keep a journal that tracks their reflections on what they’ve learned.
Memorial’s MBA was the first Canadian program to include a business ethics course in its required curriculum.
Memorial also offers a traditional MBA that can be taken either full-time or part-time; both options require applicants to have two years of work experience upon applying. The full-time program is completed in 24 months and begins in September; the part-time program is completed in 36 months and can be started in September, January or May. In addition to core courses on business management, students have the opportunity to complete electives in topics such as consumer behaviour, labour relations, international business law and social-media marketing.
The school recently opened the White Trading Lab, a facility equipped with Bloomberg terminals for financial data.
Memorial offers multiple opportunities to engage with the wider world. Students can pursue exchange opportunities with schools in Europe, Asia, South America and Australia. It is also the most successful school in the 36-year history of the John Molson MBA Case Competition.
Memorial’s faculty of business boasts 31 members, 17 of whom are full-time tenured.
