COHORT BASED AND PACED
The online MBA program is not an isolated study experience; you work through your courses with a group you come to know well online, including your academic coach. Group work, discussions, and regular assignment deadlines keep you on track—much like attending regular university classes, minus the commute.
An AU MBA online classroom connects experienced managers from across Canada and around the world, from every sector and virtually every industry—students who specialize in human resources, operations, marketing, information technology … in roles from middle manager to CEO to entrepreneur. Student groupings change from course to course, giving you maximum exposure to the rich resource that is your online MBA student peer group.
Our 24 hour online format means you can successfully complete your MBA program from home, work, or while travelling. Should life get complicated for a little while and you find you need to defer a course, our ‘three times per year’ MBA course scheduling means we can accommodate you with minimal disruption to your overall completion time.
Professors, student services coordinators, help desk advisors, learning services staff, and student and alumni relations staff all support your learning. Whether you are struggling with an MBA course concept, need special paperwork for your employer, or can’t figure out how to connect to your course from your hotel room in Dubai, there is someone here to help you.
APPLICABLE AND TAILORED TO YOU
Online MBA courses help you constantly apply your learning directly to your organization and industry; you come away from each MBA course with tangible and usable knowledge and abilities.
In the roughly 20 years since our online MBA program has been available, we have graduated over 3,500 successful managers and executives. And every year roughly 70% of those who apply to the program do so because they have been referred by a current student or alumnus .
