Business Administration in Executive Management - MA

The MBA in Executive Management at Royal Roads University is designed for working professionals, by working professionals. We’ve used our experience in the industry to create a program that gives you the solid foundation required of today’s business leaders, as well as the opportunity to put your learning to work through hands-on practice. No matter what your career aspirations are, you’ll be able to use the tools and techniques found in your program to move your organisation forward.

Who It's For

Experienced managers and business leaders who are looking for versatility and customisation of their MBA experience. The program builds on each student’s current knowledge and experience to develop the strategic skills business growth depends upon, and provides a broad understanding of critical issues in management leadership. It also allows students to select electives in such areas as sustainability, innovation, coaching or international business for an individualised MBA experience that aligns with their career goals. 

The Royal Roads University Learning Model

At Royal Roads University, we use a cohort learning model for many of our programs, including the MBA. Our unique learning model requires you to work with your team, sharing personal experiences and diverse perspectives to develop unique solutions to projects and challenges. Working together ensures that everyone contributes to and benefits from the program, and the connections you create through our cohort environment form a powerful network of support you can turn to during your program and after graduation.

An Investment in Education

The MBA program at Royal Roads University is challenging and requires compromises between you and your family, friends, and employers. Your cohort depends on you to contribute and participate in group projects and assignments, and you’ll need to allocate enough time to manage your assigned readings and individual tasks. It’s important to discuss these requirements with the important people in your life, so you can plan out mutually acceptable arrangements before you start your program. The program is challenging, but the experience is invaluable.

Team-Based Learning

Your program will include students from across Canada as well as internationally; typically about 40 years old with 15 or more years of professional experience. One of the biggest benefits of this mixture of personal and professional experience is the opportunities created by developing your professional network. You can expand your network around the globe, finding access to resources outside of what your competition can discover. And that’s a great way to build your business and professional exposure.

Organisational Management Project

The Organisational Management Project (OMP) is the major integrative learning activity of the MBA Program, and offers a rich learning opportunity through the application of theory to a real-world situation. By applying theory to a real world-situation, completion of the OMP enhances the skills of the learner and provides a valuable contribution to the client or host organisation.

More specifically, in the OMP, learners will examine a management problem, conduct academic and best case research, analyse options, and provide recommendations and a high-level implementation plan in a final report for the client or host organisation. The management problem to be researched and analysed is identified in collaboration with an organisation. MBA learners may choose to conduct their OMP with an external organisation, or it can be conducted within a learner’s own workplace provided the project is not related to the learner’s own position and does not involve his/her direct reports. The MBA Program Office will also work with learners to identify potential projects with corporate or not-for-profit organisations that have indicated their interest in being involved with our program in this capacity.


A broad range of small, medium-sized, large and multinational clients and host organisations have benefited from the substantive, practically oriented management OMPs completed by learners from Royal Roads, including, for example technology companies, resort operators, wholesale/retail operations, non-profit organisations, and municipal, provincial and federal government agencies.
