What you will learn
We set you up for success at Canada’s most prestigious business school. To do that, we teach you intensive language lessons delivered through business-related projects. You will learn through both independent projects, as well as team projects including reviewing case studies, conducting research, analyzing economic and financial data and drafting written reports.
You will also have the unique opportunity to participate in networking and interview situations, and deliver a presentation to evaluators from Schulich, helping you improve your business knowledge and confidence. Classes also feature guest speakers from the Canadian business world, ensuring a learning experience with a real-world edge.
We believe the best way to learn is through real-world practice. That’s why learning outside of the virtual classroom is just as important as in-class learning. You will have access to online social and cultural activities that will help you practice conversational English in a stimulating, fun virtual environment.
