TPND - The Alberta MBA Full-Time Program

Why an Alberta MBA?
A Masters Degree in Business Administration represents a significant achievement and valuable credential for anyone seeking to advance their career with a focus on business issues. The Alberta MBA program allows you the flexibility to pursue knowledge in a wide range of topics – from Finance to Marketing, International Business to Natural Resource Management within a specialization, a joint degree program or as a general program.

Career Management
The Alberta MBA equips students with the knowledge needed to function well in a corporate or entrepreneurial environment. Past graduates have found employment with the Alberta Government, in private industry or have started their own ventures – either returning to their previous careers or making a desired career change.

A stepping stone towards a promising career is the opportunity to pursue an internship in the four months between the end of the first year and the beginning of the second year. With assistance from MBA Career Services, you can choose from a number of employers in the government, oil and gas, banking, or other sectors.

The Program
The Alberta MBA is a challenging and rigorous program that demands a significant investment of time and energy but pays dividends many times over in knowledge, understanding, skills, and strong friendships that last the length of the program and beyond.

With only a small number of students accepted each year, the Alberta MBA provides for a personalized and high-quality experience which is further enhanced by the program’s faculty, many of them winner’s of teaching and other excellence awards.

The first year of the two-year Alberta MBA consists mostly of a pre-set schedule of business and economics basics carefully designed to establish the necessary foundation for the elective portion of the program. Areas covered include: accounting, business strategy, economics, finance, management science, marketing, and organizational behaviour. For those with previous business training, these courses will serve as a welcome refresher, but will also provide a challenge by going beyond previously acquired knowledge and by presenting current findings and theories.

Team work in all of the core courses is an essential element of the program and great care is taken at the beginning of the program in arriving at groups that are both diverse and complementary. During orientation, the teams are formed and members are given the chance to get to know each other without the demands of the program that will soon be upon them.

In the second half of the first year, there already is an opportunity for some elective coursework. Some of these electives will provide the basis for second-year courses and should thus be chosen with further coursework in mind.

If you want to pursue a specialization or stream in International Business, Technology Commercialization, Natural Resources and Energy, Public Management, or Sports and Leisure Management, you will need to submit a letter of application during the first semester outlining your goals and suitability to the specialization. More information on the specializations can be found by clicking here and choosing from the links in the specialization section.

Joint graduate degrees are also offered in cooperation with the faculties of Law and Engineering, and the departments of Agriculture and Forestry. More information on joint degrees can be found by clicking here and choosing from the links in the joint degree section.

The second year offers a wide variety of courses one can pursue, giving you an opportunity to fine-tune your degree with respect to your interests and job opportunities you wish to explore. A capstone business strategy course that brings together previously learned knowledge and seeks to apply it to comprehensive cases and issues, is the only common requirement for each student in the second year of the program.

Experience learning internationally

Some students may choose to enhance their understanding of business issues by participating in an international exchange or the International Study Tour. More information on these options is made available at the beginning of the program and is also available online.

Pursue a professional designation

While taking courses towards the completion of the MBA degree you can also lay the groundwork for obtaining a professional designation. For example, a number of the core MBA courses fulfill some of the core requirements for admission to the Certified Management Accountant (CMA) entrance examination whereas the course “Introduction to Management Consulting” satisfies a portion of the requirements for the Certified Management Consultant (CMC) designation. Some students have also opted for the completion of the exams required for the Chartered Financial Analyst designation.
