Goodman School of Business

MBA (ISP) Curriculum

Our MBA (ISP) curriculum combines the best of our practical MBA curriculum with a focus on global business integration, and puts North American business practices into a cultural perspective. It’s an innovative program designed to meet your needs as an international student, combining an intensive Business English Program with our comprehensive MBA core curriculum and flexible specializations. All of your coursework is taken in classes exclusively composed of your fellow international students.

The general stream provides you with a flexible program plan and the ability to take a variety of elective courses in different fields. The general stream is ideal if you have a wide range of interests, or are planning on working in general management and want to gain a competitive edge.

 
We also offer seven MBA specializations:
 
CPA Accredited:  The CPA/MBA program offers a CPA-Accredited stream that provides graduates with advanced standing in the CPA Professional Education Program (CPA PEP). The new accredited stream allows non-accounting university graduates to pursue an MBA and an accounting designation at the same time. Goodman is currently the only business school in Ontario to offer a combined MBA and CPA program.  
 
Accounting: This specialization gives you an integrative accounting focus at the MBA level. We are currently in the process of reviewing how the accounting stream of the MBA will fit into the unified accounting profession. In consultation with the various Ontario accounting bodies, we are working together to ensure a smooth transition to a rigorous and relevant MBA accounting option. 

Business Analytics: Business analytics uses data and statistical methods to help organizations gain insight from their data in order to analyze historical data, predict customer behaviour or help improve business processes. The field has increased in popularity in recent years due to the increase in data available to organizations from customer loyalty programs, e-commerce transactions, and even sensory data from machines.  

Operations Management: The operations management specialization includes a focus on project management, quality management, logistics and supply chain management. Courses will cover many of the topics required for the Certified Supply Chain Professional (CSCP) and the Certified in Production and Inventory Management (CPIM) professional designations from APICS -The Association for Operations Management (formerly the American Production and Inventory Control Society).
 

Finance: This specialization is ideal if you are seeking a focus mainly on investments and portfolio management. This program has a high degree of correlation with the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) program.
 
Marketing: Provides you with an integrated managerial approach to marketing that helps you apply the theoretical principles of marketing to practical, real world problems.Emphasis is placed on issues that relate to marketing in the global business world.
 
Human Resource Management: Designed to provide you with a strong foundation in the theory and practice of HR. This specialization provides you with the majority of the course work necessary for the CHRP designation.
