The Sprott Accelerated MBA is specifically designed for individuals who have completed a business degree at a Canadian university within the last five years. Qualified applicants benefit from advanced standing in the MBA program and a shorter path to graduation, based on work completed at the undergraduate level.

The Sprott MBA Accelerated Advantage

  • Enhance your skills and career options by building on your undergraduate education with courses in complementary areas of interest.
  • The Sprott MBA Internship allows recent graduates to gain relevant work experience and build their network while completing the MBA in just one year.
  • Applicants with more than two years of relevant professional experience are exempt from the internship and can finish their MBA in as little as eight months.

How it works:

  • Students in the Sprott MBA Accelerated Stream are required to complete 6.0 credits (with internship) to graduate compared to 8.5 credits in the regular MBA stream.
  • Students will be exempted from several MBA core courses based on previous coursework. Specific course requirements will depend on courses completed in your undergraduate program and grades earned in these courses.

Eligibility:

In addition to the regular Sprott MBA admission requirements, applicants to the Accelerated MBA must meet the following criteria:

  • Completed, in the past five years, a four-year bachelor’s degree in business from a recognized Canadian university, or equivalent, and;
  • A minimum overall average of B+.
  • Applicants may request a GMAT waiver within their application for consideration by the Admissions Team. Note that a waiver is not guaranteed, and applicants may be asked to complete MBA Math (an online self-paced series of learning modules) in order to demonstrate certain aptitudes.
