Our hyper-connected global society has complex challenges that require new leaders equipped with high-level skills and deep understanding of the world.
With our historic commitments to sustainability, leading as service, personal formation, developing community, and social and economic justice, we are uniquely qualified to prepare a new generation of leaders with both high-level skills in business and institutions and guided by a desire to serve the common good of humanity.
Unlike many MBA programs that focus only on developing technical skills, the Collaborative MBA program includes additional emphasis on personal formation, competency, relationships, and business without harm to people or the environment.
The blended course format consists of two on-site courses and courses taken one at a time that use both synchronous and asynchronous methods. The courses are six weeks long. Courses are offered Wednesday nights at 6:00 PM EST. Course sequence and instructors are subject to change.
Students enrolling in the collaborative MBA through CMU can choose to participate via the online stream or the residential stream.
Students in the residential stream will live in Winnipeg, attend all classes in a classroom on CMU's campus and will connect to the Collaborative MBA classrooms via synchronous online videoconferencing. In addition to the courses offered in the collaborative stream, students in the residential program will complete two non-credit seminar courses, which will add to the academic depth of the program and will broaden the student's knowledge of research and writing.
Students enrolled through the residential stream:
International students coming to Canada on a study permit are required to enroll in the residential stream.
Students enrolled through the online stream will participate in the courses primarily through the use of synchronous online videoconferencing technology with complementary asynchronous learning activities. Students may participate via the online stream from home, wherever that may be, or while travelling.
Students enrolled through the online stream:
Students in both the online and residential streams will begin the program with a North American on-site course and will participate in a one-week international on-site course during the program.
