York University/Northwestern University MBA Program

This cross-border MBA begins with a week on Schulich’s campus in January, followed by classes every third weekend until the summer. In August, students spend two weeks at Kellogg, and in October Schulich hosts an International Week, where students take electives with contemporaries from around the world. To finish their first year, they’re taken on a one-week international trip for a global strategy project. Second year electives are taught at Kellogg, either in Illinois or at the school’s other international campuses in Israel, Germany, Mimai, China or Hong Kong. The program concludes with just-introduced course in New Venture Design during a capstone weekend in Toronto.
