Schulich School of Business


In the third part and the most sought after part of the interview with Imran Kanga, we discuss the Curriculum Structure and the Post-MBA opportunities at Schulich School of Business.

Schulich offers 18 specializations. Among them, which are the top 3 in popularity? When can students start their specialization?


Students choose their electives and specializations in the 2nd year of the program and have the opportunity to specialize in up to two areas. Many of our students combine Marketing with Strategy, or Finance and Strategy for example. Students are also able to combine functional specializations such as Marketing or Finance with one of our many industry specializations – everything from global mining and retail to health, entertainment or real estate and infrastructure. This ability to combine functional areas with industries helps differentiate our graduates. There is a lot of choice and flexibility given to students that allow them to customize the program to meet their individual needs.

The three most popular specializations are Finance, Marketing, and Strategic Management.

In the second part of the interview, Imran Kanga - Assistant Director, Graduate Recruitment & Admissions reveals the biggest misconception about Schulich Full-time MBA program and the massively popular International Field Study project.

What is the biggest misconception about Schulich Full-time MBA program?

I think a common misconception students have about our MBA is that our program is best suited for students who would like to pursue careers in Finance and Marketing. While the Finance and Consumer Products sectors do tend to recruit a large number of Schulich graduates, I think our program has strengths beyond just these two sectors. For example, our students gain live consulting experience in Canada by working with companies on consulting projects during the program, so students that would like to pursue a career in Consulting would also benefit immensely from our program. We also offer some very niche and unique industry specializations like Arts and Media, Real Estate and Infrastructure, Social Sector Management, Business and Sustainability and Healthcare Industry Management. So students that have diverse interests in these areas would also be a great fit for our program.

Schulich MBA AdmissionsIn the first part of the interview, Imran Kanga - Assistant Director, Graduate Recruitment & Admissions shares about the various MBA program options and the teaching methodology used at Schulich School of Business.

The Schulich MBA has an unusual option – switching from Full-time to part-time and vice versa. How does it work logistically? When should candidates opt for this option?


The Schulich MBA program is one of the most flexible programs in the country today. Students have the option to start the program part-time or full-time but can also switch back and forth during the program.

Students need to complete 20 full courses (60 credits) to graduate. They can do this full time in 4 terms (taking 5 courses per term) or part-time over 10 terms (taking 2 courses per term).

A student would benefit from this option because it helps students maintain a work-study balance. Let’s say a student is working with a company and he starts the program part-time in the Fall. During the winter term, if work is relatively slow the student can add a few more courses and study Full time for that term. In the next term, as work...
