“The Weekend and Evening MBA (WEMBA) is designed with the working professional in mind; no longer do you need to choose between school or work,” said Wissam Al-Hussaini, associate director, MBA Program. “The program provides a great balance between studies and workload, enabling aspiring professionals to earn their Schulich MBA while holding down a full-time job.”

The Weekend and Evening MBA takes the core elements of Schulich’s traditional, full-time MBA in the first year of studies, and combines them with a curated list of Schulich’s most popular MBA elective courses in year two. In the fall and winter terms, students are enrolled in four courses, two of which are scheduled on weeknights, while the remaining two are scheduled in a condensed, consecutive format on Saturdays throughout the term. In the summer term, students are enrolled part-time in two courses, scheduled on weekday evenings.

This is largely an in-person program, with in-person exams. However, the courses will be taught in a hyflex environment, with students able to access a maximum of four classes for each course remotely on a first-come first-served basis.

The first-round admission deadline is March 22, 2022. Visit the program website for more.
