It can be an expensive risk to complete the application process for an MBA, only to discover that you don’t qualify for admission. At Goodman, we don’t want you to waste your time or money. Send us your transcripts and resume and we will conduct a free pre-assessment to not only let you know if you are eligible for one of our programs, but also if we think your application will be competitive enough for admission.

Create a profile to submit your resume and transcripts by visiting the Goodman Graduate Portal.

International applicants are encouraged to apply by March 1 for a Fall term (September) start, and August 1 for a Winter term (January) start, to allow for application and visa processing.

The Goodman Scholarship Program is exclusive to the Goodman School of Business. Exceptional incoming students can earn a prestigious scholarship worth $3,000 with the possibility of renewal the following year. Students must demonstrate at least two of the following:

  • Leadership in university and community life or evidence of entrepreneurial talent
  • Exceptionally high academic grades
  • Financial need

These entrance scholarships are worth $1,000 and are awarded to full-time domestic and international students admitted to the MBA program with an admission average of 87% (Canadian equivalent) or higher at the time of admission.

Students may also apply for Research Assistant (RA), Teaching Assistant (TA), part-time instructor or marker/grader positions. Students must be legally permitted to work in Canada in order to hold Teaching Assistantship positions.

Each year, the Goodman School of Business provides over $250,000 of support to its graduate students. Scholarships and awards are subject to change based on available funding each year.

Goodman’s MBA curriculum is designed to combine the strength of a comprehensive core curriculum with the ability to specialize in key functional areas of business. The Goodman MBA program consists of 20 courses, 14 of which are core courses and 6 are electives.

The general stream provides you with a flexible program plan and the ability to take a variety of elective courses in different fields. The general stream is ideal if you have a wide range of interests, or are planning on working in general management and want to gain a competitive edge.

The accounting specialization offers a CPA accredited stream that provides graduates with advanced standing in the CPA Professional Education Program (CPA PEP) to the end of Core 2. The CPA accredited stream allows non-accounting university graduates to pursue an MBA and an accounting designation at the same time.

The Business Analytics stream is designed to provide students with the logical, analytical, and critical thinking skills needed to prepare them for analysis and decision-making positions in a variety of industries and fast-growing professions. This field has increased in popularity in recent years due to the increase in data available to organizations from customer loyalty programs, e-commerce transactions, and even sensory data from machines.

This specialization is ideal for those seeking a focus mainly on investments and portfolio management. This program has a high degree of correlation with the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) program.

Designed to provide you with a strong foundation in the theory and practice of HR. This specialization provides you with the majority of the course work necessary for the CHRP designation.

The marketing specialization equips you with an integrated managerial and global business approach to marketing that helps you first apprehend the values of product/service offerings, their market spaces as well as competitors, and then enables you apply the theoretical principles of marketing to deliver superior customer experiences that advance sustainable competitive advantage and growth. Emphasis is centrally placed on understanding practical, real-world marketing problems through customer behaviour and marketing analytics, and solving these problems using learned insights through innovative marketing strategies. Students will be able to earn the Canadian Professional Sales Association (CPSA) Sales Certificate upon completion of the specified courses, and the core and elective courses in the stream shall progress students well in earning the American Marketing Association (AMA) Professional Certified Marketer in Marketing Management, Sales Management, and Digital Marketing Certificate.

The operations management specialization includes a focus on project management, quality management, logistics and supply chain management. Courses will cover many of the topics required for the Certified Supply Chain Professional (CSCP) and the Certified in Production and Inventory Management (CPIM) professional designations from APICS -The Association for Operations Management (formerly the American Production and Inventory Control Society).

Our faculty have expertise in a wide range of business areas. If none of our specializations interest you, you can also look into pursuing a general MBA. The general MBA enables you to take courses that fit your future career plans from within all the different specializations. You can also enroll in independent study electives, where you can work one on one with professors who have experience in your field of interest and can offer you guidance and knowledge. Students may also request permission to enroll in select fourth-year classes if they wanted to study their subject with other students.

Students who have completed undergraduate/graduate courses which are equivalent to specific courses in the Goodman MBA, may be granted advanced standing for up to 5 credits.

If you are awarded full advanced standing, you could complete the MBA program in as few as eight months studying full-time. Part-time students are also eligible for advanced standing.

All advanced standing is evaluated on a course-by-course basis. Courses eligible for advanced standing must have been completed in Canada or the USA within the last seven years, with a grade of at least 70%/B-/2.7.

Please note that advanced standing is not available in the MBA double degree programs.


If you would like a pre-admission assessment of your eligibility for advanced standing, please upload a copy of your transcript(s) to the Goodman Graduate Portal for review.

Co-op is paid work experience that you can add to your resume upon graduation from our MBA program. All full-time students who are at Goodman for at least two semesters of study and that maintain an average of 75% are eligible for our co-op program. Co-op is optional. Students enrolled in the co-op program attend workshops, seminars and speaker series that are designed to help them discover the opportunities and industries that await them during their co-op work placement and post-MBA.

Most co-op placements are four months in length; however, co-op placements can be extended to eight or 12 months. International and domestic students are eligible for co-op.

There are no separate application requirements for the co-op program. There is an average requirement to stay in the co-op program.

Experiential Education in the Goodman School of Business at Brock is project based where students work as “consultants” to community partner(s) within the framework of their academic courses. This is not a “co-op” or “placement” as in the traditional experiential learning models, but rather a teaching-learning strategy that connects classroom theory to challenges experienced in the business world. We focus on deliverables. Whether you are running a search engine optimization (SEO) campaign or developing social media strategies for a partner organization , you will have helped build a tangible result that our organization partners need to grow their businesses and serve the community. These projects will also help to round out your resume, setting you apart from the competition in your job search.


The International Partnership of Business Schools (IPBS) has added Brock University’s Goodman School of Business as the only Canadian partner in its network. The consortium of 13 globally oriented, leading business schools in Europe, North and Latin America all grant dual/double degrees, which require study in two countries and promote language and cultural fluency along with business aptitude.
