Profile of MBA Program - University of New Brunswick-Saint John
The University of New Brunswick at Saint John's Faculty of Business provides innovative and progressive learning opportunities, developed and maintained with input from the business community, for individuals seeking a business education and/or career in business administration and management. The Faculty emphasizes critical thinking, communication skills, financial and market literacy, the international nature of business, and the importance of technology in the corporate world.
Major programs offered by the Faculty include the Bachelor of Business Administration, including a co-op variant, with specialization options in Accounting, Economics, Electronic Commerce, French, Human Resource Management, Bachelor of Applied Management, and the Master of Business Administration (MBA) with concentration opportunities in International Business and Innovation and Technology Management. MBA students can decide between 'a general curriculum and earn a General Management (GM) MBA, or complete research with a faculty member on a specific business issue.' The unique aspect of the Faculty's MBA program is that students who major in International Business may complete two of the required study modules in two different trade regions chosen between Canada, China, France, or India while those who decide on Innovation and Technology Management will have the option to 'work in a hi-tech business or an enterprise incubator.'
The MBA program has a student/professor ratio of 2:1, one of the lowest in Canada, which ensures a more intimate learning environment as students have more frequent access to their professors. Students in the Faculty's major programs will be able to interact, converse, and build links with economic and industry leaders via a mentorship program, corporate tours, dinners, mixers, seminars, and workshops which occur throughout the year. Additionally, the Faculty offers part-time certificate programs for working professionals in Accounting, Business Administration 1 and 2, E-Commerce, and Human Resource Management, the Canadian Operational Research Society Diploma (CORS), in cooperation with Canadian Universities, for individuals 'who have completed a program of studies with significant Operational Research content,' the Export Partnership Program, and the Export Internship for Trade Graduates.
