A solid foundation

The program begins with eight foundation courses covering Organizational Behaviour, Strategy, Accounting, Marketing, Operations, Finance, Statistics and Managerial Economics. Together with a sustained focus on Business Strategy Integration, these courses give you an essential foundation in advanced business and management techniques. It ends with your first trip to Vancouver for an intensive two-week study period.

IMBA courses

You study 14 courses to complete your first-class business management education. IMBA courses are designed to give you an in-depth understanding of essential business functions. Throughout the courses, the challenges of global business will be a common theme.


The Capstone is one of the highlights of the IMBA program. It brings together students and the business community in the program’s final weeks, and provides an opportunity to build upon the knowledge and experience gained throughout the preceding two years. Capstone involves business speakers and live cases for you to recommend real business solutions, and provides an invaluable opportunity to make real connections with the business community.
