Discussion, collaboration, and peer learning are at the heart of the MBA with a specialization in Hockey Management and the Certified Hockey Professional (CHP) designation. To effectively contribute, students must have a solid base of education and management experience.
Admissions committees within The Business of Hockey Institute and AU will review all applications and select a small class based on a comprehensive review of the applications received. This program is designed for elite individuals working within hockey and hockey-related industries. The right candidate, with an exceptional record of management and leadership outside of hockey, will also be considered.
Students will be assessed based on their progressive background of managing people, projects or budgets within their team, league, or related industry. The Admissions Committees consider your entire application profile holistically, including managerial/professional experience, your essay, letters of reference and academic records if applicable. With a limited number of openings available; this process is highly competitive.
Athabasca University provides admission pathways at the master’s level, that go beyond recognition of undergraduate degrees: if you do not have an undergraduate degree but have significant management experience (see pathway #3 below), we encourage you to apply. Students applying to the CHP-PEP program only must have earned a degree in business from a recognized institution and meet AU’s existing MBA requirements for management level experience.
