How the next generation of business grads is shaking things up, both
inside the classroom and out, in Canadian Business magazine's 16th annual
MBA guide. On newsstands today.
TORONTO, Oct. 18 /CNW/ - Oh, how things have changed. The MBA market has
exploded, but catering to the latest generation of MBAs also means business
schools have had to get smarter about what they offer in the classroom.
Instead of just one or two programs, most schools now offer a handful of
different MBA and EMBA options, many of which can be completed part-time,
full-time, online or even by correspondence. While some take as little as 12
months to finish, others can be stretched out for four or five years. And the
proliferation of joint degrees and specializations also means students can
customize their programs to focus on sectors ranging from real estate and
health administration to international business and sports management.
"Indeed, many of the changes to today's business-school curriculum - and
the way it is delivered - have come about directly as a result of students,"
Canadian Business reports. In Alberta, where many young professionals were
simply too busy making a living in the oilpatch during regular working hours,
the University of Calgary decided to introduce a three-year evening program
that allows candidates to complete their MBA outside the nine-to-five grind.
And this September, the Rotman School of Management in Toronto launched its
very own "Morning MBA," a program that lets students complete all of their
classwork between 7 a.m. and 8:59 a.m., two days of the week.
The newly redesigned Canadian Business magazine, featuring the annual MBA
Guide, arrives on newsstands across the country starting today. Approaching
its 80th anniversary, Canadian Business reveals a radically different look,
while staying true to an overall vision of offering rigorously forward-looking
insight. For more information about the magazine redesign please see press

Today" posted 8:30 a.m. at
