Program Fees

The Sprott Professional MBA isn’t just a world-class program, it’s a smart investment—we offer one of the most affordable MBA degrees in Canada.

Tuition and other fees are based on the number of terms of study and the residency status of the applicant—i.e., domestic (Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada) or international. To estimate the fees that will apply to you, please use Carleton’s Fee Estimator* and keep the following in mind:

  • The PMBA is a full-time program, consisting of four terms of course-based study (Fall + Winter + Summer + Fall).
  • The University Health Insurance Plan (UHIP) is mandatory for international students, and covers the cost of physician/hospital medical services for students and their immediate families.

*All amounts are in Canadian dollars. Annual tuition and student fees are set by the University each year and are subject to change. Fees may also be affected by the speed at which you progress through the program.
