Lakehead University MBA Program

Lakehead’s program develops students’ analytical, decision-making and communication skills, and heightens their understanding of ethical considerations in business. Through a partnership with an international company with a local presence, they can grapple with current real-world issues surrounding strategy. At the request of students and industry partners, Lakehead is developing a course on project management. Relevant content will be bundled into this dedicated course, allowing students to complete the required educational hours to fast-track
their PMI exams. The university is also reviewing a proposal for a joint B.Eng./MBA degree. Both full-time and part-time students start the program in September.
