Online MBA from school in Canada


Hello everybody

I am a Canadian living abroad for the time being. Because of work and family obligations I will not be able to come home for another 2.5 years.

I would like to pursue an Online MBA from a school in Canada but it's exceedingly difficult to find a reputable one. I would prefer to do the program through a Canadian school.

I would also prefer to find a school that is either well known or at least has accreditation. So far, my search has come up mostly empty. I have found the Blended Online MBA at Dalhousie University, but this requires some time to be spent on campus, which I am unable to commit to.

Could somebody please advise?

You may have to compromise and instead take a superior programme, like the Illinois iMBA.

Arg, one weekend per month. It's doable but would be a lot of travel. Thanks for the suggestion though it's something to consider.

That schedule is very similar to EMBA programs from other Canadian schools (there's one from HEC Montreal / McGill and another with Alberta / Haskayne), also delivered in one long weekend per month. They might be worth looking into as well. However, in terms of pure online MBAs - or blended programs with minimal on-campus residency requirements - that Dalhousie program is pretty much it.

Again, that would be a possibility but I'm not 100% certain I would be able to travel back and forth each month. I may end up pursuing a fully Online MBA at this point. Thank you so much for your advice.

I should also mention Athabasca, which is a well established online MBA. But why not do Illinois and get a better degree for less?
