Flex Full-Time MBA - For working professionals

Andrea Barlett
"The flex-time MBA program gave me the opportunity to continue working in my role as the Director of People Operations at the Canadian HR technology start-up, Humi. The program's unique Entrepreneurial capstone was invaluable in providing me with first-hand experience of the challenges of building a business. I take these learnings with me in my work supporting start-ups and small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) across Canada."

Andrea Bartlett, Director of People Operations at Humi
