Wilfrid Laurier University - Pre-MBA


Choosing where to do your MBA can be a daunting task. Research opportunities, facilities, practical experience, and name recognition are just a few of the factors that can play an important part in your decision-making process.


Wilfrid Laurier University, located at the heart of Canada's technology triangle in Waterloo, Ontario, boasts one of Canada's largest business schools.  As a member of the AACSB, Laurier's School of Business and Economics belongs to an elite group, with less than 5% of the world's business schools being recognized with this elite distinction . The MBA offered at Laurier is quickly coming to the forefront as well, due to its innovative, integrated curriculum.  The integrated core, one of the key features of our MBA, offers students the chance to acquire vital business skills and experience in multiple disciplines, before choosing one of the 11 offered  concentrations.  This allows Laurier MBA graduates to be better prepared for challenges waiting in the modern business world, while customizing their program to fulfill individual career goals.


One of the biggest challenges for international students who desire an MBA is to satisfy English language requirements.  In response to this need, the Laurier English & Academic Foundation (LEAF) is pleased to offer the new Pre-MBA program, to begin its first cycle in January 2012.  The Pre-MBA is an 8-month intensive program designed to help students whose first language is not English to gain the experience and knowledge to succeed at the MBA level.  Academic Writing and Research, Business English, as well as practical courses taught by WLU business faculty are just a sample of the many courses students will take to prepare them for the demands of the MBA.  Some key features of the program are:


  1. Case studies
  2. Presentation strategies
  3. Site tours
  4. Guest speakers
  5. Team competitions
  6. GMAT preparation/upgrading (optional)


Imagine listening to a prominent guest speak to the class about intellectual property and law, followed up by a tour of a Fortune 500 company's head office.  The Laurier Pre-MBA will provide you with opportunities like this and much, much more.
