International Exchange

Haskayne MBA Program

The Haskayne MBA program aims to transform Canada’s business landscape by enabling our students to make significant contributions as individuals, and as leaders.

Haskayne MBA Exchange

The Haskayne School of Business has more than 30 partnerships with leading business schools all over the world.  An international exchange is an essential part of the Haskayne MBA programs. Many MBA students choose to go on short term international exchanges, ranging from one week to two months in almost every continent of the world. Our exchange programs offer valuable opportunities to study business from different international perspectives. It is also a great opportunity to form friendships, develop business networks and explore new countries and cultures. We encourage our MBA students to study abroad, and welcome incoming international students on exchange for a full semester or to take part in our Haskayne MBA Summer Program in July.

All incoming exchange students must be nominated by the exchange coordinators of our partner universities via e-mail. After nomination, students will receive detailed instructions on application, courses and housing information. To gain a better understanding of our MBA programs, please see our online graduate calendar. For housing information, please see Student Residence.

Partner universities must nominate students before March 15 to ensure all incoming exchange students register for classes at the same time as Haskayne students for the upcoming fall (September semester)and winter semester. Nominated students must then apply by April 15. For partners with two nomination cycles, Winter (January-April) semester nominations can be accepted by August 15, and student applications must be received by September 15.

Incoming exchange students are encouraged to participate in the UCI International Student Orientation in order to become familiar with future events and activities.


We have international exchange partners in almost every continent of the world, so there are a variety of exchange opportunities to meet the needs of our MBA students. While some students choose to go on term exchanges, most students choose short term studies as these are more conducive to busy work schedules. Short term studies are typically two to six weeks, mostly in May and August.
