Canada's Ivey Business School has announced the launch of a new blended MBA program.
The new program—dubbed the Accelerated MBA—is aimed at working professionals and will include both online components and in-class sessions, which will be held in downtown Toronto. The in-class sessions will take place one long weekend per month.
In all, Ivey's new MBA will take 12 months to complete.
The program is designed for those who want to continue working while doing an MBA. Prospective applicants should have between two and seven years of work experience, as well as an undergraduate degree in business.
Beyond the MBA's classes, the program will also include a field project—where students will partner with an organization to solve a business problem or seize an opportunity—as well as an international study trip to southeast Asia.
Ivey's new Accelerated MBA program will begin in January 2020. The GMAT is not required to apply.
