Guelph, Ontario

University of Guelph MBA Program

Nicknamed “Moo U” by the locals, the University of Guelph has deep roots in the agricultural and food industry, and its MBA program reflects that. The school offers three specialized MBA degrees: Food and Agribusiness; Hospitality and Tourism; and Sustainable Commerce. With cohorts beginning each May, students spend two years completing their studies, and can keep working while they’re at it—Guelph’s MBA is largely delivered online, though students gather for in-person residencies on campus three times during the course of the program. Guelph’s College of Business and Economics is housed inside the university’s recently renovated MacDonald Hall, and the school runs periodic Bay Street networking events for alumni.
