About the Laurier MBA Program
Founded by the largest English-speaking business school in Canada, the Laurier MBA program has a long-standing reputation for excellence. At the forefront of innovation, the Laurier MBA was the first in Canada to offer a fully integrated core program, the first to offer a combined CMA and MBA program, the first to offer an innovation and entrepreneurship option, and the first to offer a part-time weekend program. Known for its collaborative learning style and flexible programming, the Laurier MBA has an open door policy and uses a model for leadership development. Laurier MBA graduates are sought after in the marketplace for their in-depth quantitative and qualitative training and versatility, as demonstrated by their outstanding performance in both case competitions and in accounting exams. Laurier graduates have the distinction this year of holding the highest qualifying average in both, the Chartered Accountancy Qualification (CA) and Certified Management Accountant (CMA) exams, the prestigious CA Gold Medal awarded for the highest overall mark across Canada, and the highest mark ever received on the CMA exam.
