Program Structure

In just 32 months, the Rotman Morning & Evening MBA programs will dramatically expand your potential to become a high-value decision maker in the global economy.

The Morning & Evening MBA programs take approximately 32 months to complete. The duration of the programs can be reduced should you opt to take additional elective courses during the designated academic terms.

Orientation and pre-courses are held in mid-August. The first two terms begin with an intensive week, after which core classes are held two mornings per week, from 7:00 to 8:59 a.m. or two evenings per week, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 or 9:30 p.m. 

In the second half of the program when you have completed your core courses, you have the choice to specialize in the career path you choose with a range of electives, including those taught during regular working hours. You will also have the opportunity to participate in international study tours at the end of your core courses, in your second and third years.

No exemptions are given for courses completed toward another undergraduate or graduate degree. At Rotman, we offer a full and transformative educational experience, without shortcuts or compromises.
