A new admission route for undergraduate business degree holders

Finish your Athabasca University (AU) online MBA for Executives in as little as 18 months if you already have a Bachelor of Commerce, Bachelor of Management, or similar business degree, and at least three years of management experience. This accelerated route to your MBA for Executives acknowledges that your undergraduate studies—in combination with the experience you have gained in the workplace since graduating—provide a solid base from which to advance into senior management study and practice.

The accelerated online MBA route gives you the flexibility to tailor your master’s studies to your own interests and career goals. Once you have completed two mandatory courses, you can design the rest of your program using a combination of online and in-residence electives, international electives and, if you choose, a major research project.

Because the accelerated online MBA route is part of our flagship online MBA for Executives, all students study together, meaning you will enjoy the full benefits of peer learning within a student body that spans industries, sectors, and organizations across Canada and around the world (see ‘Being an AU MBA Student‘).
