Flexible schedule

Our GDBA, GCBA and GCQBS are flexible part-time and full-time programs. Full-time students can complete their diploma in as little as one academic year; part-time students in as little as two to three years. The certificate can be completed in one semester, or over one academic year part-time. Classes are scheduled during the day and evening, typically, Monday through Friday, with some online options.

Diverse student body

GDBA, GCBA and GCQBS students come from different parts of the world, speak many different languages, and also come from a wide range of educational backgrounds. And, despite not being an admission requirement, on average, students have 5 years of work experience prior to coming into the program. This diversity adds tremendous value to the classroom discussions and group work, where students not only learn from their professors but also from their classmates.

Strong ties to the international business community

John Molson School of Business maintains strong links with the business community and with Canada's key growth industries, such as pharmaceuticals, consulting, investment banking, aerospace, biotechnology, and high technology, as well as with NGOs. These ties allow us to provide our students with regular and ongoing opportunities to connect with local, national, and international industry and its leaders.

Career Management Services

The dedicated Graduate Career Advisor at Career Management Services meets GDBA and GCBA students on an individual basis to discuss career issues and to personally get to know the candidates. Your key to success in career management is clearly to know yourself and then evaluate your value to the marketplace.
