Executive MBA


The Alberta Executive MBA is designed to give senior level managers the skill set to become innovative leaders. Each year the Executive MBA program takes great care to ensure that the incoming cohort consists of intelligent, hard-working, and successful individuals. We seek motivated, bright, and articulate individuals who have strong standards of personal ethics. Each candidate is evaluated holistically to ensure compatibility between the applicant and the program.

Admission Criteria

Applications to the Alberta Executive MBA program are evaluated holistically in terms of professional experience and achievements, community contributions, and academic performance.

Individuals with an undergraduate degree and a GPA of 3.0 out of 4.0 or higher over the last two years of study along with a minimum of seven years of professional work experience, will meet the minimum academic requirements of the EMBA program.  A standardized test score may be required.

Individuals who do not hold an undergraduate degree, or those with an undergraduate degree with a GPA below 3.0 out of 4.0 can still be considered for the Alberta Executive MBA program. In these cases, the Admissions Committee will look for significant professional work experience and demonstrated leadership success.
