Accelerated MBA - Full-Time Program

The Accelerated MBA program option allows you to complete your Ted Rogers MBA in as little as 12 months for students with an undergraduate degree in business starting in the Fall.

Students with a non-business undergraduate degree can complete the Accelerated program in 16 months by completing Foundation Business courses starting in the Spring, and continuing with the core program in the Fall.

This option is ideal for students who want to fully immerse themselves in the MBA program. Students pursuing the Accelerated MBA do not typically work over the duration of the program.

Intake Who should apply?
Spring (May) Start Domestic and International applicants with non-business undergraduate degrees.
Fall (September) Start Domestic and International applicants with business undergraduate degrees.

Please note: Foundation course requirements are assessed at the point of application. Applicants who have not completed undergraduate studies in any of the Foundation course subjects must apply to the Spring semester.

“After four and a half years of roles with increasing responsibility, I felt the time was right to take my education to the next level. I knew credibility was going to be key to my growth. The Ted Rogers Full-Time MBA program helped me bridge this gap by acquiring high-value industry skills, building connections and preparing for real-world challenges. Not only does the program provide a refresh on concepts I learned during my undergrad, but their vast array of experience taught me to think differently, and as a result made me a more effective leader in my role today.”

Internships (Optional)

Internships are an enriching option for students to integrate into their Ted Rogers MBA program experience. However, they are not a requirement for graduation. During the capstone term, students have the opportunity to pursue paid internships (and/or full-time positions), which complement their academic studies. If students are interested in integrating an internship into their MBA experience, they can speak with the Graduate Careers team for more details.
