Schulich aims to provide a comprehensive curriculum in international business management. The school has overseas campuses in Beijing and Hyderabad, India, and markets itself to international managers looking for hands-on experience. Students can choose from more than 20 specializations, including business ethics, financial engineering, and non-profit management. They also have the opportunity to participate in the Schulich Strategy Field Study, a real-world consulting project in which students conduct a market overview of a company and then present their recommendations to the client firm’s senior management. Schulich says it’s one of the few MBA programs that allows students to switch between part-time and full-time at any point to accommodate lifestyle and career needs. Full-time and accelerated classes begin in September and January, while part-time students can start in September, January or May.
