The relentless and radical change associated with the business environment of the late 1980s and 1990s has meant that those holding MBA degrees must constantly upgrade their management knowledge and skills in areas such as inventory management, the management of workplace diversity, information systems, global opera- tions and women in management, among others.
The Schulich School of Business encourages management graduates to continue to keep abreast of new developments in their profession. The programs in its Division of Executive Development at Schulich have been an integral part of the School’s offerings since its inception. In 1994, the School recognized that MBA graduates required opportunities beyond executive education offerings to enhance their skill and knowledge sets. This led to the development of a certificate program which is unique in North America - the Post-MBA Certificate in Advanced Management. While other schools have chosen to mount brief "refresher" programs for their graduates, Schulich has opted instead to support more in-depth study through full-term (13-week) or half-term (6-week) MBA elective courses.
Open to those who hold an MBA degree from a recognized business school, the Certificate re-immerses the MBA graduate into the mainstream of the Year 2 of the Schulich MBA program.
