This graduate program is not accepting new registrants this year.

The Schulich School of Business offers an Executive MBA program at the GMR/Schulich India campus in Hyderabad, and awarded by York University.

The program is geared towards educating managers in core and advanced management topics. The program runs in Schulich’s Hyderabad campus but includes courses in Toronto and other international locations. It facilitates the busy work lives of practicing managers by offering courses over extended weekend sessions. Students engage in peer learning, international immersion and a capstone applied management project.
