How the Program Works

Smith's Accelerated MBA for Business Graduates is offered in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, Mississauga, Markham, Ottawa, and Montreal. This provides a broader perspective that is not available in programs that draw their participants from a single city.

Team-Based Learning

Smith uses a team-based learning approach to create a highly supportive and collaborative learning experience - both inside and outside the classroom. Learning Teams are formed at the beginning of the program and remain together for the duration. Each team is comprised of 6 to 8 members, with an emphasis on diversity of background.

On-campus sessions

On Campus Session

There are three on-campus sessions during the program which account for approximately 50% of your total class hours – the two-week Opening Session, held at the beginning of the program, the one-week Global Business session in the Spring, and the one-week Strategic Marketing session which takes place in the Fall. Executive class accommodations are provided for you during your stay in Kingston.

On-campus sessions are intense and productive, providing excellent opportunities for networking. Our program staff organizes numerous events and activities to ensure that your experience includes a healthy blend of work and recreation.
