Trinity Western University (TWU) offers an MBA program in non-profit management, one of only two schools in Canada to offer such a specialization. Other streams include international business and managing a growing enterprise, which combines principles of entrepreneurship with a strong focus on ethics. The international specialty offers the opportunity to spend two and a half weeks in another country—such as France or Italy—to visit companies, meet with executives and experience the local culture. Past students have visited companies including BMW, L’Oréal Paris and Lamborghini.
In addition to TWU’s regular MBA program, the university also offers an English-language joint MBA program with Tianjin University of Finance and Economics in China. The 18-month course takes place on TUFE’s campus and is taught by faculty from both schools.
TWU is a private Christian university located in Langley, B.C., occupying 157 acres. The international specialty is also offered at the school’s satellite campus in Richmond, B.C.
The MBA program can be taken on a full-time, part-time or accelerated basis. The school’s accelerated and regular MBA programs are open to international students, but the part-time is not.
The international specialty is taught through a series of monthly residencies, while the other two specialties are offered with a mix of face-to-face teaching during residencies and online courses.
The regular and accelerated programs have a rolling start date, while the part-time program usually starts in August.
TWU’s school of business boasts a faculty of 16 members, 10 of whom are full-time, tenured faculty.
