Specializations & Graduate Diplomas
The Schulich School provides students with the opportunity to select a significant number of courses from the more than 100 electives it offers. The result is a rich opportunity to select from 19 specializations, including management functions such as finance and marketing; industries or sectors such as financial services, public management, nonprofit management and leadership; or management topics such as international business, entrepreneurial studies, and business and sustainability. Most electives are taken in Year 2 of the program, in Toronto. One elective will be taken at the end of Year 1 in Hyderabad.
Students are encouraged to specialize in more than one area. Schulich does not, however, require that its graduates specialize. Many students already possess a specialization and find that their on-going careers are enhanced by selecting a wide variety of elective courses that add greater breadth to existing knowledge and skills.
