I use my MBA education daily in my career in absolutely everything I do. Being self employed means you have your finger in everything. For me, the Edwards MBA program gave me a taste of all areas in business, and it helped me understand better what I was doing on the business and management end.
Besides the classes, I found the relationships with the students to be very rewarding. I also found that, from a business point of view, I have used the instructors in a consulting capacity for my business and board work. The contacts made are very valuable.
It was not easy, running a practice and being a single parent, but it was all worth it. I've demonstrated that you can do whatever you want if you want it badly enough. I am open to opportunities and I have the confidence to go after what I want – and I will!

Edwards MBA 2009
Leading to a professional general management graduate degree, the Edwards MBA’s intensive and highly integrated format will develop management ability in an applied and useful way. A student will learn the people skills of management: how to manage oneself and others; how to communicate effectively; how to lead. The Edwards MBA is a highly integrated program designed to meet the needs of individuals whose undergraduate education has been in either business or academic disciplines other than business, and whose future careers are likely to involve managerial activities.
The Edwards MBA can be completed in only 12 months if taken full time, or part time in up to 36 months. A decidedly unique aspect of this innovative MBA program is the focused learning and integration of business concepts. Each course is offered consecutively in a modular format. Courses are scheduled in three week durations creating an intensive learning environment that immerses students in the subject area while allowing flexibility in scheduling your MBA education. Furthermore, our students learn how business concepts are integrated into business decisions through a combination of applied courses, exercises, case studies and projects incorporating each functional business area.
Standard Graduate Studies Application plus:
- IELTS or TOEFL (where applicable) scores
For a September start, international students must submit a completed application by March 31 to allow for time to process visa documents. Domestic student application will be accepted until May 31.
