Welcome to the Sandermoen School of Business MBA program. At Sandermoen, we focus on the essence of leadership for personal, corporate, and organizational success. Our programs have been designed by a special corps of highly qualified professors who have deep and successful career experiences in both professional business and academic practice, and who are determined to provide you with an education that is thorough, engaging, challenging, and relevant to leaders.
Our fully online MBA is designed for early-career professionals and managers of companies who aspire to lead their organization towards higher performance. The curriculum begins with coverage of fundamental management essentials such as financial, analytical and decision-making skills, and knowledge of an organization’s core functions and interactions. From there, students can tailor their degree by entering one of our specialty streams, creating a unique experience that can best address the industries and areas most relevant to them.
Our MBA program will provide you with the skills to advance your career and the performance of your organization. You’ll enhance your ability to think critically and have the opportunity to collaborate and network with students and faculty across Canada and around the world. No matter what your career goals are, our MBA program will provide you with the broad leadership principles required of today’s managers, and poise you to translate strategies learned in the classroom into real-world application successfully.
We aim to prepare early-career professionals and managers for senior leadership positions, without interrupting their career momentum. To accomplish this, we provide a highly-qualified faculty, a variety of educational tools and techniques, some of the most advanced online teaching and learning applications available, and a carefully designed suite of courses delivered in a focused schedule.
The Online Experience
To maximize the global learning experience throughout the program, our students will participate in “live” seminars and/or conferences with experienced leaders from global organizations. Our students and faculty are not limited by geographical boundaries, providing a new educational experience that allows learners to think with a global perspective while working on case studies and projects with other colleagues from around the world.
Our live seminars, also known as “virtual classes” or “vClasses”, are hosted by Cisco WebEx and are held once a week. For the convenience of our students, our Technical Support department is always available during vClasses to provide assistance as needed.
There are fourteen courses: ten foundation courses, three specialization courses including electives, and one capstone integration project (see Curriculum below). Courses are completed in an eleven-week fixed-agenda format. If courses are taken in a typical eleven-week fixed-agenda format, the duration of the MBA program is three years, six months. Students are also able to double-up on courses (depending on availability), which shortens the program duration.
