J.R. Smith School of Business

The biggest selling point of the Smith full-time MBA is its team-based approach. Students are divided into groups selected by behavioral psychologists for diversity and 50% of course marks are awarded for team performance. Each team also has a dedicated coach and team boardroom to work in.

Another key selling point for Smith is each student’s four coaches: a team coach, a career development coach, an executive coach and a wellness coach for student health. It is this student-centric approach that separates Smith from the pack.

Finally, as a 12 month MBA, Smith’s program is a great option for those who want to get to work in Canada, fast. The majority of graduates go into finance or consulting, and 80% of students find post-graduation work in Canada.
