Royal Roads University MBA Program

Royal Roads offers a combination of online courses and on-campus residencies. Students can choose to specialize in management consulting, leadership, international business and innovation in Europe, or international business in Asia Pacific with a focus on trade and investment. The European specialization involves a three-week stint in Grenoble, France, and students in the Asia Pacific stream participate in a eight-day field study to two cities in the region. Regardless of specialization, the school prides itself on its real-world learning modules, particularly the Organizational Management Project, which sees students team up with a company of their choice to identify a management problem within the organization. Students conduct research, provide the company with recommendations and produce an implementation plan to tackle the problem. The program starts in January and August.
