Admissions

The application process for the Exectuve MBA Americas program is a rolling admissions process. Once a file is complete it is considered. However, applicants are encouraged to apply early as each boardroom location has limited space and availability and classes fill quickly.

A dedicated Application Advisor will work with prospective students to complete the admissions process. The Advisor will first provide an initial preliminary assessment to determine eligibility, and once an applicant’s candidacy for the EMBA Americas program is determined, the Advisor will outline final steps and present the completed file to the Admissions Committee.

There is no fee to apply to the Executive MBA Americas program.

Admission Requirements

A holistic approach is taken when assessing an individual’s candidacy for the program. We encourage interested individuals to book a virtual consultation with a member of our admissions team, or submit a resume for a preliminary assessment.

Work Experience – Applicants must demonstrate evidence of management experience, either project management or people management. While most applicants have 10 years of work experience, consideration is given to all applicants who are able to show evidence of progressive professional experience.

Management Experience – Applicants must have evidence of leadership experience. It is mandatory to have several years of people/project management experience.

Academic Experience – A completed undergraduate degree is required. Undergraduate performance is evaluated on a case-by-case scenario. A minimum grade average of B is encouraged, but not always necessary should the applicant meet all other requirements.

Geographic Restrictions – Applicants must be living and working within a country where a boardroom is located while completing the program. We have boardrooms in Canada, Chile, Peru, Mexico and the United States.
