MBA program at Assiniboine starts in January


The MBA program that Assiniboine Community College and Cape Breton University (CBU) are partnering to deliver is set to kick off on January 11, 2019.

The two institutions jointly announced the partnership in June this past year to deliver CBU’s Master of Business Administration in Community Economic Development at Assiniboine.

“We’re thrilled to be at this milestone with our partners at CBU,” said Bobbie Robertson, Dean of Business at Assiniboine. “Continuing to advance business education offerings at Assiniboine is a priority within our School of Business, and partnerships such as this are one of the ways to present more opportunities for Manitobans.”

CBU’s MBA in Community Economic Development blends curriculum found in traditional MBA programs with an emphasis on economic development, leadership, change management, and governance.

“The program is designed for working people who need the flexibility to balance work, family and their studies,” said Barrie Riome, Director of the MBA program at CBU’s Shannon School of Business. He noted that face-to-face classes are scheduled over approximately 16 weekends a year.

CBU offers its unique MBA degree in eight cities across Canada: Edmonton, Calgary, Kingston, Toronto, Brandon, Saskatoon, Whitehorse, and Sydney, with a 15-year track record delivering the program outside the CBU main campus.

CBU continues to accept applications for the MBA program. Those interested in learning more may visit
