MBA and Master's Programs

Application Deadlines

Most UAlberta MBA Programs have one intake each year (Fall Term).  With our Part-Time MBA program (excluding FastTrack), we have both a Winter Term (January) and Fall Term start.  We do not have specific rounds of admission, instead, applications are evaluated on a rolling basis.  

Once complete, your application will be reviewed by the MBA Admission Committee.  Please note, you can complete the initial online application prior to submitting supporting documents to the MBA Office.  As admissions are completed on a rolling basis, it is strongly advised to apply early!


We are now accepting applications to our Winter 2020 Part Time MBA class. Applications for all other programs will open starting October 1st for our Fall 2020 classes.

Final application deadlines are as follows:

Full Time Domestic (inc. FastTrack) First Round*: January 15, 2020
Final Round: June 1, 2020

Full Time International (inc. FastTrack) First Round*: January 15, 2020

Study Permit Applications

Study permit applications are made through Citizenship & Immigration Canada. Permit application processing times do vary based on the visa office you would be applying through. Please make note of these processing times and take these into account in determining when to complete your application. We strongly encourage all students requiring a study permit to apply early for MBA admission and to apply for their study permit once admitted.

To check study permit processing times for your country, please refer to the Citizenship & Immigration Canada website.
