MBA Internship

Graduate with relevant work experience through the MBA Internship Program. Completion of the MBA Internship Program is a graduation requirement for MBA candidates who have less than two years of professional employment experience upon entry into the program.*

*Professional employment experience is defined as positions which include managing or supervising team members and may include responsibility of a large portion of a project life-cycle; managing time, budget and resources; leading a team in developing needs assessments, processes, and delivery options; strategic and financial planning; or collaboration with key stakeholders. Experience must be verified by the Sprott School of Business.

An Integrated Management Curriculum

The Sprott MBA’s integrated management curriculum has been redesigned to meet the changing needs of leaders in business.

You will be immersed in an integrated set of core courses that will introduce strategic business concepts, as well as market and business strategy, using applied learning methods that include case studies, online simulation, and real-time, client-based projects.

You can opt to specialize within your MBA by choosing one of our market-driven concentrations, or build your own program without a concentration.

Program Fees

The Sprott 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 MBA is a full-time program.
  • The standard MBA stream consists of three terms of course-based study (Fall + Winter + Fall) plus a Summer internship study term.
  • The Accelerated MBA stream consists of two terms of course-based study (Fall + Winter) plus a Summer internship study term.
  • During the Summer internship study term, all students pay tuition at the domestic rate regardless of residency status.
  • Students who have more than two years of professional work experience upon entry into the program will be exempted from the MBA internship, and do not pay Summer fees.
  • 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.
