Admission Requirements

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
  • Five years (minimum) of work experience in a related field showing progressive levels of responsibility.

A GMAT is not required.

International Students

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).

Advanced Standing

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.

Tuition

The tuition for both the MA Leadership and MBA program covers everything you need to successfully complete the program, including:

  • Tuition for all courses, both online and during your residential periods.
  • Meals and beverages during your residential periods.
  • Textbooks and course materials.
  • Supporting materials.
