In 1994, AU logged on with the world’s first fully interactive online Executive MBA program, and since then has continued to build a tradition of excellence in online management education.

Today, at 20 years old, the AU online MBA is Canada’s largest executive MBA program, and has earned a place among the top MBAs in the world. Our powerful collaborative online learning environment makes it feasible and practical to work on a top quality Executive MBA while still meeting your commitments to work and family.

Designed to fit individual schedules, the program can be successfully completed from home, work, or even while travelling. You need not leave work for a month, a year, or even every second Friday. You control your study hours, working at the time and place that’s right for you.

Key Features:

COHORT BASED AND PACED
This is not an isolated study experience; you work through your courses with a group you come to know well online, including your academic coach. Groupwork, discussions, and regular assignment deadlines keep you on track—much like attending regular university classes, minus the commute.

GLOBAL PERSPECTIVES
An AU MBA online classroom connects experienced managers from across Canada and around the world, from every sector and virtually every industry—students who specialize in human resources, operations, marketing, information technology … in roles from middle manager to CEO to entrepreneur. Student groupings change from course to course, giving you maximum exposure to the rich resource that is your MBA student peer group.

FLEXIBLE
Our 24 hour online format means you can successfully complete your program from home, work, or while travelling. Should life get complicated for a little while and you find you need to defer a course, our ‘three times per year’ course scheduling means we can accommodate you with minimal disruption to your overall completion time.

HIGHLY SUPPORTED
Professors, student services coordinators, helpdesk advisors, learning services staff, and student and alumni relations staff all support your learning. Whether you are struggling with a course concept, need special paperwork for your employer, or can’t figure out how to connect to your course from your hotel room in Dubai, there is someone here to help you.

APPLICABLE AND TAILORED TO YOU
Courses help you constantly apply your learning directly to your organization and industry; you come away from each course with tangible and usable knowledge and abilitities.

PERSONALLY RECOMMENDED
In the roughly 20 years since our EMBA has been online, we have graduated over 3,500 successful managers and executives. And every year roughly 70% of those who apply to the program do so because they have been referred by a current student or alumnus.
