The Sobey EMBA Difference

Built for professionals

The Sobey Executive MBA takes 16 months to complete and is divided into 4 semesters with a module delivered in each one: winter, spring, fall and winter, with a short break at Christmas before the final winter semester.

Get started with our unique onboarding approach

Your Executive MBA begins with a two-day onboarding session where you’ll be introduced to Saint Mary’s University systems and processes, assigned teams for group projects, and facilitated through leadership development sessions. You’ll also get to know senior administrators, support staff, and alumni.
