Director's Welcome

Thank you for exploring our MBA programs at the University of Prince Edward Island!

We offer two MBA programs. Our MBA in Global Leadership program can be completed in twelve months and is designed for recent university graduates who are embarking on their career. Admission is open to individuals with a bachelor’s degree in any discipline, with a strong record of academic achievement. The program emphasizes leadership in the context of international business.

For the upcoming Fall semester, classes for this program will be online due to the health risks and travel restrictions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope to deliver the Winter 2021 and Summer 2021 courses on campus in person, but that will depend on whether the situation sufficiently improves.

Our Executive MBA program is designed for experienced working professionals who need a program that can be completed without pausing their career. Classes are held Fridays and Saturdays every other weekend. Students come from a wide range of organizations, allowing for enriched class discussions that benefit from the collective experience within the classroom. This program normally takes two years to complete.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will not run first-year courses for the Executive MBA program in 2020–21 as the executive experience relies heavily on the in-class experience. Students interested in commencing their studies this year have several options, which are outlined on our website.

Both of our MBA programs benefit from excellent professors with diverse international experience. We promote evidence-based management principles so that our graduates can excel at making well-informed decisions. Students will be exposed to the best research on management and will be stimulated to hone their management and leadership skills to become the kind of business leaders needed in today’s challenging but rewarding global business environment.
