Options define the Schulich MBA experience. Students can switch between the part-time and full-time programs and customize their experience with 18 areas of specialization, three campuses (two in Toronto and one in India), and multiple start dates and scheduling. This flexibility allows students to complete their MBA in either 16 or 20 months. Students with a business background may also qualify for the eight-month Accelerated MBA track.

For MBA candidates with a global bent, Schulich offers a 20-month International MBA where students master a second language and specialize in a global trading region. IMBA students also complete an internationally focused work term and consulting project.

Underlying all of the programs is an emphasis on managerial effectiveness. The teaching format varies as the organization, pedagogy, and style of classes is determined by the most effective way to learn the course material. Instructors make use of case studies, in-class presentations, role-playing exercises, and visiting speakers and business leaders.

Students are encouraged to select electives that best suit their backgrounds and careers interests. Students may elect to cluster their electives around one or two areas of specialization to build functional or industry-specific expertise.
