Standard admission requirements to both the MBA and MA in Leadership programs are:
- Four year undergraduate degree from a recognized university, and
- At least a B- average in your last two years of full-time study, and
- Three years (minimum) of work experience in a related field
If you do not meet the above requirements, you may still be admitted to the program if you possess the following;
- Three year degree/diploma from a recognized university/college, and
- At least a B- average in your last two years of study, and/or an acceptable professional designation, and

While the MBA and MA in Leadership programs are full-time, students are not required to maintain full-time residency in Canada in order to complete their degree. We understand that both programs do not meet Canadian Immigration and Citizenship’s eligibility criteria for international students to obtain a study permit, as the majority of the courses are delivered online. International students should apply for a visitor’s VISA to attend each of the residential periods; two on-site periods for the MA in Leadership (14 days in total) and three on-site periods for the MBA (26 days in total).
Please visit the International Credential Evaluations guide to further assess your academic background in relation to admission requirements.
The University of Guelph gives advanced standing for students who have completed graduate level courses. A maximum of two courses will be considered for advanced standing credit. For more information, please see the University of Guelph's Graduate Studies website.
