University of Manitoba MBA Program

To provide as much scheduling flexibility as possible, Asper students can take classes on one of three timetables: afternoons and evenings from Monday to Thursday, all day on Saturday and Sunday, or Saturday and Sunday mornings. Starting in fall 2016, Asper will offer an MBA Financial Analyst stream, with courses designed to prepare students to take the Certified Financial Analyst exams upon graduation. The school is also set to play host to the Stu Clark Investment Competition in March 2017, with teams of graduate students competing for cash prizes and a spot at the 2016 Global Venture Labs Investment Competition at the University of Texas at Austin. A mentorship program pairs students looking for some insight into life in the C-suite with senior executives. Full- and part-time students may start in either August or January, while the accelerated program begins in August.

New this year! Asper will launch a joint JD-MBA program in fall 2017
