MBA Internship

Graduate with relevant work experience through the MBA Internship Program. This dynamic program gives you the opportunity to gain real-world work experience while completing your degree. You will graduate with a competitive advantage and a head start to achieving your career goals. The 16-week summer internship allows you to extend learning outside the classroom and apply knowledge in a business environment.

MBA candidates who have more than two years of professional employment experience may apply for exemption from the internship.*

*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.
