The University of Fredericton’s online Master of Business Administration (MBA) program is designed for early-mid career professionals and managers of companies who aspire to lead their organization towards higher performance. The program will provide learners with the skills to advance their career, and drive organizational results. Students will enhance their ability for critical thinking and have the opportunity to collaborate and network with students and faculty across Canada and around the world – all while applying their learning real-time without interrupting their career momentum.

The MBA is a flexible program that has been developed for working professionals. UFred ensures students are able to balance their studies with their careers and other personal and professional commitments. With the ability to pause their studies at any time, UFred ensures students can take a break in their program as required.

Each course in the MBA program requires attendance of one virtual class (vClass) a week. vClasses take place in the evening between Monday and Thursday, at the earliest 6:00 p.m. EST, and typically last 1-2 hours.

Students begin their studies by completing a series of foundational courses, each lasting 11 weeks, that offer a deep dive into economics, organizational strategy, and leadership theory. The courses contain a combination of individual assignments and group work projects, giving plenty of opportunities to network.

Once the foundational courses are completed, students will begin their selected specialty leadership stream: you can choose 1 stream out of 9 available options. Each stream focuses on a different business area, such as human resource management, consulting, or business analytics.

The final stage of your MBA program is the group integration project, where students will apply all that they have learned to a real organization of their group’s choosing. Group will have 14 weeks to complete the integration project before a final presentation. The International Field Study (IFS) is offered as an option within the Global Capstone Project, and offers the chance to travel internationally in order to help develop a deeper understanding of the complexity of doing business in the global economy.

My experience with the Executive MBA program at the University of Fredericton has been nothing short of exceptional. From the outset, the program promised a blend of rigorous academic curriculum and practical, real-world application, and it delivered beyond my expectations.

One of the most remarkable aspects of this program was the caliber of the professors. They were not just academically distinguished but also genuinely engaged and passionate about teaching and mentoring. Their approach was always grounded in real-world experiences, making the learning process incredibly relevant and enriching. They were accessible and supportive, fostering an environment where curiosity was encouraged, and learning was a shared journey.

Flexibility is another cornerstone of the EMBA program at Fredericton. As a professional striving to balance work, life, and education, the program's structure was a perfect fit. It offered the right blend of online coursework and in-person sessions, allowing me to manage my studies without compromising on my professional or personal commitments. This flexibility ensured that pursuing my EMBA was a challenging yet thoroughly enjoyable experience.

However, the highlight of my EMBA journey was undoubtedly the International Field Study in Amsterdam. This 11-day excursion was not just an academic trip but a profound learning and cultural immersion experience. It allowed me to apply the concepts learned in the classroom in an international context, understand different business practices, and network with professionals and peers from diverse backgrounds. This field study broadened my perspective, enhanced my global business understanding, and was a testament to the program's commitment to providing students with a holistic and global education.

In conclusion, my EMBA from the University of Fredericton has been a transformative educational endeavor. The program has equipped me with invaluable insights, skills, and experiences, propelling my professional growth and expanding my global outlook. For anyone looking to elevate their career with a flexible, engaging, and comprehensive EMBA program, I cannot recommend the University of Fredericton enough. It's an investment in yourself that pays dividends far beyond the classroom.
