Standard admission requirements to both the MBA and MA Leadership programs are:
- A four-year undergraduate degree from a recognized university with at least a B- average in your last two-years of full-time study
- A minimum of three years relevant work experience
If you do not meet the above requirements, you may still be admitted to the program if you possess the following;
- A three-year degree (with at least a B- average in your last two years of study) or a professional designation (such as CPA etc.)
- A minimum of five years work experience in a related field showing progressive increases in responsibility.
A GMAT is not required for admission.
While the MBA and MA (Leadership) program is 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, 7 day periods for the MA (Leadership) and three on-site periods for the MBA (26 days over a two year period).
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.
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.
