Athabasca University

Public University - online MBA Program

Athabasca University (AU) is a publicly funded, research intensive university offering over 40,000 students from more than 90 countries annually access to online accredited education. AU's online Executive MBA program helps students develop the advanced leadership and management skills they need to succeed in any sector—without putting the rest of their lives on hold. The curriculum concentrates on the key management areas that affect organizational performance: strategy, human resources, finance, marketing, economics, operations, and information technology. It requires students to exercise their critical thinking and decision making skills, and to apply what they are learning to their work in their own organizations—leading to immediate workplace and career impacts. The AU Executive MBA is designed for working, experienced managers and professionals who want to lead more effectively, move into more senior level positions within their organizations, or start to grow their own business or not-for-profit ventures.

The strategic alliance between Athabasca University and the Canadian College of Health Leaders (CCHL) demonstrates the commitment AU and CCHL has to fostering leadership development for health executives. This alliance allows AU students in the Executive MBA program to fulfill their requirements for the CHE designation while earning their MBA degree online.
