Université Laval MBA Program

Laval offers a wide array of specializations, some of which (such as agribusiness management, pharmaceutical management and corporate social and environmental responsibility) include a consultancy project working with a real company. The bulk of Laval’s MBA programs are offered only in French; its special MBA in Global Business is taught in English. The International Management MBA requires students to spend a summer studying abroad at a partner university in China, Latin America, Morocco or the U.S. International Management students also have to show proficiency in at least three languages: French, English and a third of their choice. Laval’s business faculty building opened an extension last fall with new classrooms and other amenities. Semesters begin in September, January and May.

New this year! Laval will offer a new specialization in Business Analytics starting in January 2017
