To earn a concentration or a theme, you will need to complete 12 credit hours in the chosen area (with the exception of the Financial Analyst concentration).

The package of courses must have a cohesive management theme and each course must be relevant from a management perspective. The package must be approved by both the host departments and the MBA Program Committee at Asper prior to taking the first course in the package.

Take Asper MBA courses as an occasional student

Find out if the Asper MBA is right for you by taking an Asper MBA course as an occasional student. Earn up to 12 credit hours of exemptions from MBA core and elective courses when you decide to formally apply to the Asper MBA. That’s 12 credit hours toward your MBA degree, before you even commit to the program. 

Learn more about studying in Asper as an occasional student

As an occasional student applicant, you do not need to submit your resume, references, nor a GMAT score – you must only complete your online application to occasional studies and submit past academic transcripts (you must hold a university degree to apply as an occasional student).

You will have one academic year of occasional student status from the time you start. Occasional student status expires August 31 each year and must be reapplied for in each new academic year within which you wish to have occasional status.

  • The courses that are available to Occasional Students are:
  • GMGT 7200 Critical and Creative Thinking
  • GMGT 7220 Managing People in Organizations
  • IDM 7510 Leadership and Change
  • MKT 7010 Marketing Management
  • IDM 7130 Contemporary Themes in Business
  • OPM 7120 Operations and Supply Chain Management
  • and a limited few Asper School MBA electives (that either don’t have a prerequisite or for which you took the core course first).

To get credit for occasional studies courses in the MBA, you must start the MBA no later than 5 years from when you took the first occasional studies course (to get credit for them all).

Only occasional studies courses with grades of C+ or higher qualify for exemptions. Occasional studies courses taken prior to admission to the MBA program will not count toward the MBA degree GPA. International students interested in taking a course as an OS will be part-time students and will not be in a degree program and must thus be familiar with all IRCC regulations surrounding their status in Canada as an occasional student.

Please also note that if you decide to start as an occasional student and later apply for the MBA program proper, that will be a new and separate application and a new $100 application fee. Also, the tuition fees for occasional student courses are the same per course as for MBA students.

Admission requirements

To qualify for admission to the Master of Business Administration program, you must have a minimum of:

  • A three-year bachelor's degree with a minimum GPA of 3.0* (on a 4.5 scale) in the last 60 credit hours of study (GPA of minimum 2.5 may be considered in some circumstances) *International student GPA calculation
  • Two years of professional work experience
  • Minimum GMAT (or equivalent GRE) score of 500 (550 is preferred)** (See below for GMAT exemption qualifications)
  • One of the following English language proficiency test scores, if applicable: 
    • AEPUCE: 85% if entering AEPUCE with an IELTS of 6.0
    • IELTS: 7.0, with no band less than 6.0
    • PTE Academic: 65
    • TOEFL- iBT: 100, with a score of 20 in each of reading, writing, listening and speaking

A GMAT score is valid for five years, while the English language test scores are valid for two years.

Meeting these requirements does not guarantee acceptance into the program.

In addition to the admission requirements described here, all applicants must meet the minimum admission and English language proficiency requirements of the Faculty of Graduate Studies.

Each year, the program admits a small number of highly experienced and gifted individuals who do not hold a baccalaureate degree or whose GPA falls below 2.5. These individuals have significant professional background and a strong GMAT score. Preference in filling these limited spaces is given to local applicants.

GMAT exemption based on GPA

  • Unique for Winter 2023, MBA applicants with an admission GPA of 3.3 (on a 4.5 scale) qualify for a GMAT exemption.  
  • The GMAT will be replaced with an interview process;
  • If you qualify for this exemption and do not have a GMAT score and meet the other applications requirements, the Stu Clark Graduate School Program Office will contact you after your application is received to discuss the interview details.

Note: If you have the GMAT with a score of 500 or higher, please submit it and the replacement interview process will not need to be conducted.
