Part Time Students- MBA FAQ

 Can I study for my MBA part time?

Yes, we do accept students for part time study. Part time students may begin the program in either in January, April or September. Part time students complete the exact same courses as the full time students and are an important part of the Brock MBA program.

How many courses do I take a year?

Part time students typically take five courses a year (two in fall, two in winter and one in spring) in order to complete the program in four years. Students may take more or fewer courses each year, if they wish.

What will my schedule be like?

Most part time students attend classes in the evening. Many part time students, depending on their schedule, are also able to attend courses during the day. Occasionally, students may enroll in independent study electives that enable them to work closely with a professor on a topic that interests them.

We understand that due to work and personal commitments you may not always be able to take courses each semester. We are always willing to accommodate any requests for leaves of absence and are committed to ensuring that all of our students complete the MBA program.

Are part time students eligible for advanced standing?

Yes! The Goodman MBA program is one of the few MBA programs in Canada that offers course exemptions that will shorten the length and cost of your graduate degree. Course exemptions are granted for courses that will be taken during the first year of the MBA program.

All students who have earned a Canadian or American business undergraduate degree in the last seven years are eligible to be considered for advanced standing. Advanced standing will only be awarded for courses that meet our curriculum and minimum grade requirements.  You also must have graduated within the last 7 years.

Advanced standing is awarded on a course by course basis. The maximum amount of advanced standing that a student can be awarded is 10 courses.
