MBA Program Overview
Laurentian University’s online MBA program has been developed for CGAs and senior CGA students. The unique partnership between the Certified General Accountants Association and Laurentian provides CGAs and students with access to an affordable MBA that can be completed in as little as 15 months.
Based on the university’s on-campus MBA, the online graduate degree brings the proven track record of the MBA program to a wider audience. The combination of no on-campus requirements and a comprehensive Web delivery system provides students with the flexibility required to complete coursework wherever and whenever they choose.
The MBA design recognizes that having already received many of the fundamentals in business through academic and CGA professional studies, there is no need to repeat concepts already mastered. The focus is on the business topics and skills that accountants need to move into senior management positions: organizational behaviour, marketing, operations, research, and strategy. Electives, including advanced courses for individuals with an undergraduate business degree, accommodate a wide range of student interests and backgrounds.
Web-based course delivery encourages independent study and interactive learning, and knowledgeable faculty foster a progressive learning environment in which students are able to closely interact with both their instructors and an extensive network of management peers.
In addition to key educational components, the program also promotes teamwork and builds the leadership skills necessary to succeed in today's competitive business environments.
