Profile of Edwards MBA Program - University of Saskatchewan
The Edwards MBA values accessibility and a high academic experience. Students develop an approach to management that is both integrative and strategic, gaining a deeper understanding of organizations and their local and global context. By enhancing their interpersonal communication, team building and leadership skills, graduates enter their professional endeavours with confidence, integrity and accountability.
The Edwards MBA provides each student with a strong component of core courses, a variety of industry-based elective courses to choose from, a strong professional development program and an international study tour. The program focuses around team-building, leadership and business strategy. As well, there is a community liaison advantage where students are partnered with industry to complete a management consulting project tailored to the industry host or an entrepreneurial-focused business plan.
The Edwards MBA can be completed in 12 months, from September to August, if taken full-time or up to three years (36 months) if taken part-time. Its intensive and highly integrated format will develop your management ability in an applied and useful way. More than that, you will learn the people skills of management: how to manage yourself; how to communicate effectively; how to lead.
A decidedly unique aspect of this innovative MBA program is the focused learning and integration of business concepts. Each course is offered consecutively in a modular format. Courses are scheduled for one, two or three weeks creating an intensive learning environment that immerses students in the subject area, while allowing flexibility in scheduling your MBA education. As well, our students learn how business concepts are integrated to make business decisions through a combination of applied courses, exercises, case studies and projects, incorporating each functional business area.
