Sobey has redesigned its MBA program to emphasize responsible leadership through an eight-month integrative course, and it employs active learning through what it calls “immersive” experiences focused on entrepreneurship, community and not-for-profit leadership, and an international class trip. (The program changes go into effect in September 2016.) Faculty and staff at Sobey also help students develop a plan for acquiring management skills and plotting their career paths.
