Introduction of Proposal and Academic Unit This document provides a proposal for developing an MBA International (MBA) program to be offered within the Kenneth Levene Graduate School of Business at the University of Regina, geared toward full-time international and domestic students. In North America, the norm in the past has been for Master of Business Administration (MBA) programs to require a minimum of 2 years of business experience. However, in many other countries, and increasingly in Canada, MBA programs do not have a work experience requirement and a student may go directly from undergraduate study into an MBA program. There are many students, both domestic and international, who have completed undergraduate degrees but do not have work experience, who would like to enter a master’s program in business administration. Some Canadian universities are developing programs to address this need (see Appendix C), which is often considered an early career master’s degree. This proposal outlines the introduction of an early career MBA International (MBA) graduate degree program at the University of Regina. 2. Overview of Proposal and Background of MBA Need By proposing an MBA International program, the Kenneth Levene Graduate School of Business is seeking to complement its current graduate program offerings. The need to complement our current suite of graduate programs is threefold. First, there is a need to accommodate the growing number of international applicants who are seeking a North American graduate level business degree. Many such applicants are enrolled in ESL programs at the University of Regina, which provides current and future possibilities for applicant pools through our ESL program. While these students are interested in Master’s programs in the Faculty of Business Administration, most do not have Canadian work experience and would have difficulty relating to the classroom interaction and/or group work that is part of the educational experience in our current Master’s programs which are predominantly aimed at part-time students and offered through a mix of evening courses, one-week intensive courses, and on-line courses. The proposed MBA International would meet the needs of this student group. Second, there are a large number of domestic students who graduate (either from the University of Regina or elsewhere) with non-business degrees, who wish to supplement their undergraduate degree with an intensive Master’s degree. This group of students usually hope to complete a Master’s degree in 12-20 months, depending on the pace at which the student wishes to proceed, and the proposed MBA International program would meet this need. Third, the addition of an MBA International (MBA) degree will round out our current offerings by providing more choices for prospective students seeking an 1 early career master’s program. The current MBA, MHRM, M.Admin, and Master’s Certificates are all aimed at the part-time student with previous work experience. The proposed MBA International would be a full time program which will complement our current part-time programs. The 2009-2014 University of Regina Strategic Plan indicates that international programming should be actively explored and developed. A goal of the Strategic Plan is to: “Raise the profile and increase the presence of the University regionally, nationally, and internationally” (12) “(r)eview existing strengths in internationalization. Evaluate geographic areas of new opportunity, and implement an internationalization strategy (9). 1 The Kenneth Levene Graduate School of Business is fulfilling this goal in developing the proposed MBA International program. As outlined in section 2.2 below, there is a market and need for global graduate business education. The MBA International will benefit: • International students seeking a global experience in Canada; • Canadian students desiring an increase in internationalization of programs and experience; and • The Faculties of Business Administration, and Graduate Studies & Research and the University of Regina who have strategic plans to integrate international components at various levels (operations, research, and education). 2.1 Current Graduate Level Business Programs The Kenneth Levene Graduate School of Business currently offers 4 Master’s degree programs and 6 Master’s Certificate programs. These programs all require an undergraduate degree combined with work experience. All of the current Master’s degrees and Master’s Certificates are geared toward part-time students, with course offerings evenings, on-line, and in one-week intensive formats. While there are a few full-time students in the MBA and MHRM programs (i.e., taking a minimum of 6 credit hours per semester), the program of study must be carefully planned in order to enable program completion in a timely manner. 1 mâmawohkamâtowin: Our Work, Our People, Our Communities University of Regina Strategic Plan 2009 – 2014 2 2.1.1 Master’s Degrees A comparison of the four Master’s degree programs currently offered in the Faculty of Business Administration is provided in the following table: Degree Work Experience GMAT / Qualifying Credit Hours Cost (excl. Required GRE Courses qualifying courses) 1 Master of Business • 2 years GMAT 500 8 specified 30 credit hours $19,000 Administration – MBA business work courses (10 x 3 cr. courses; primarily experience evg. courses) 2 Executive MBA • 5 years - - 36 credit hours $34,000 management (15 x 2 cr. courses + 2 x 3 cr. experience courses, taken over 18 mo.) 3 Master of Human • 2 years HR - Any 10 30 credit hours $19,000 Resource Management – work courses (10 x 3 cr. Courses; includes MHRM experience 4 web courses & 6 one-wk courses 4 Master of Administration • 2 years GRE for Any 10 30 credit hours $19,000 – M. Admin business work internat’l courses (10 x 3 cr. courses; can be (Leadership) experience students taken entirely through one- week courses) The four master’s degrees that are currently offered are differentiated on the basis of the program content, work experience requirements, and method of program delivery. 2.1.2 Master’s Certificates Each Master’s Certificate requires completion of 3 Master’s level courses (plus qualifying courses), and may only be completed on a part-time basis. Master’s Certificates may ladder into a degree program and be used to fulfill either elective or required courses, depending on the degree of match between the Master’s Certificate and the degree program selected. 3 The 6 Master’s Certificates currently offered at the Kenneth Levene Graduate School of Business are shown in the following table: Master’s Certificate Work Experience Required GMAT / Credit Hours GRE 1 Human Resource Mgmt. • 2 years business work experience - 9 credit hours 2 General Management • 2 years business work experience - 9 credit hours 3 Business Fundamentals • 2 years business work experience - 9 credit hours 4 International Business • 2 years business work experience - 9 credit hours 5 Organizational Leadership • 2 years business work experience - 9 credit hours 6 Project Management • 2 years business work experience - 9 credit hours 2.2 The Market for an MBA International Program The proposed MBA International (MBA) program will be an early career cohort-based and full- time 45 credit hour program offered by the Kenneth Levene Graduate School of Business through the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research at the University of Regina. The degree will provide an intensive study of business administration and management, aimed at individuals holding bachelor’s degrees in business or non-business disciplines and/or international students seeking a North American graduate level business program. Since there are no qualifying courses in the proposed MBA International (as there are in the current MBA), a larger number of courses / credit hours are necessary to offset this gap. To compensate for the lack of work experience (as is required in the current MBA), Co-op work placements and travel/study tours would be available to students to further strengthen their experience. A full-time MBA International program at the University of Regina would serve the needs of a variety of groups, including: • U of R students who complete an undergraduate degree in Arts, Science, or other areas (including business), but who wish to stay in university for an additional 12-20 months to obtain business / management skills that will help them compete in the job market: o In a slower economy, it is particularly important for undergraduate students to have an option to stay in university for graduate-level studies. o Offering a global or international focus to an MBA education further expands future career possibilities for MBA International graduates. • International students who complete a 4-year undergraduate degree in business or other fields in their home country, who would like to obtain a North American business / management Master’s degree. o We currently have a very large contingent of ESL students from Saudi Arabia who would like to stay at U of R and enter a graduate program in business, but who lack work experience. 4 o We have many Hunan University 2+2 students and other international students who complete 2+2 programs at University of Regina who would like to stay on in a graduate business program. o We have several universities in India and China that are interested in 1+1 business graduate school arrangements, but whose students lack work experience. An MBA International degree program would be ideal for such students, who could take half their program at their home university and finish their program at the University of Regina (approximately 8 courses). These students are well-prepared by their home university and able to immerse into a course like the proposed MBA International. Students in the proposed MBA International program will acquire the conceptual and analytical skills necessary for successful management performance in a range of contexts, including the business, public and nonprofit sectors, and a variety of professional settings. This will appeal to many potential students from a wide variety of undergraduate backgrounds. 2.3 Full-time Cohort-based Program A new 45-credit hour 15-course MBA International program at the University of Regina would cater to full-time students in a cohort-based approach. The recent success of the Executive MBA cohort-based program has demonstrated a positive response in the marketplace for programs that are accelerated, cohesive, and intensive. The proposed MBA International program would allow domestic students to complete the program in as little as 12 months, while international students could take as long as 20 months to complete the program. The focus would be on bringing an international aspect to business studies, and students will be encouraged to include a domestic or international study tour as part of the program. 5 2.4 Academic Schedules for Domestic and International Students International students may find it challenging to complete a graduate level business program in just 12 months, particularly if English is not their first language. As a result, there will be a choice of course scheduling options to complete the program. A breakdown of the proposed course schedule is shown below, based on completing 15 3-credit hour courses (45 credit hours in total). Domestic Students International / Part-time Students AUGUST – 1-week core course AUGUST – 1-week core course FALL – 5 core courses FALL – 2 core courses WINTER – 5 core courses WINTER – 3 core courses SPRING – 2 core courses SPRING – 2 core courses SUMMER – 2 elective courses SUMMER – 2 elective courses FALL – 3 core courses WINTER – 2 core courses Domestic students can complete the program in 12 months. International students (or other students seeking to take fewer classes per semester) may take 20 months to complete the program. The proposed schedule enables international students and others requiring extra time to proceed at a slower pace, taking approximately half as many courses as regular domestic students during the Fall and Winter semesters. 2.5 MBA International Course Requirements The list of courses to support the MBA International program will include MBA courses which are parallel to the existing GBUS 800-level courses offered in current master’s degree and certificate programs. The one-week intensive course that kicks off the program in August will be MBA 830 Social Issues in Business, which will introduce students to business ethics business fundamentals, case analysis, the role of business in society, and also provide a bonding experience for the new cohort of students who are typically entering this program early in their career. The course structure for the MBA International program is shown below, and possible timetabling options are also outlined below. 6 MBA International Program – Required & Elective Courses 13 Required Courses MBA 810 Statistics & Quantitative Methods for Business (new) MBA 815 Business Policy & Strategy MBA 816 Production and Operations Management MBA 817 Global Organizational Behaviour MBA 830 Social Issues in Business MBA 832 Accounting for Managers MBA 833 Financial Management MBA 835 International Business MBA 840 Strategic Marketing MBA 841 International Marketing MBA 843 Strategic Human Resource Management MBA 866 Managing Information Systems MBA 891 International Financial Management 2 Elective Courses MBA 836 Innovation and Entrepreneurship (choose from):*** MBA 838 Research Methods in Management MBA 845 AA-ZZ Selected Topics in Business Administration MBA 848 AA-ZZ International/Domestic Study Tour MBA 860 Managing Change MBA 865 Project Management MBA 900 Project in Business Administration (6 credit hours) * MBA 845AA-ZZ is offered only on an occasional basis. ** MBA 900 is worth 6 credit hours and may be taken in place of choosing two electives. *** Elective courses are offered on a rotating basis with only 4 elective courses offered in each calendar year.

A copy of this plan will be kept in the student’s file and a copy will be provided to the student. Students who wish to complete their studies by the planned date will need to adhere to their agreed-upon course pattern; otherwise, timely completion of the program cannot be guaranteed, since each course is offered only once each year. * Students who complete a Co-op workterm in their first Spring/summer (2011) semester would take classes in the following Spring/Summer offering (2012). 8 2.6 Program Delivery The MBA International program is a full-time cohort based program. MBA International courses will be offered during the day to students in this program, with classes scheduled twice per week for 75 minutes each class (except MBA 830 which will be offered in a one-week intensive format). Admission to the twice weekly day-time MBA course offerings will be limited to those in the MBA International program. Our current GBUS courses will continue to be offered to our other part-time degree and certificate program students. Since GBUS courses are typically scheduled for 3 hours once per week in the late afternoons and/or evenings, or on the web, or in an intensive one-week format, there will not be a conflict with the MBA International courses. There will be a Co-op work term option available to international students in their first spring/summer semester. If a Co-op work term is not completed, the students would continue as full-time students and graduate 4 months earlier. Domestic students may seek to end to their academic program with a second work term. Having a Co-op option provides a work experience opportunity that enhances the learning experience for the MBA International student. The broad range of backgrounds found among faculty members in the Faculty of Business Administration will contribute greatly to the success of the proposed MBA International program. Current faculty members come from a variety of countries, including: o China o Congo o India o Mexico o Pakistan o Romania o Russia o United States Several faculty members have also taught university courses in other countries and gained exposure to international business through presentations at international conferences and sabbatical experiences. This broad international business experience will enrich the classroom experience. 9 2.7 Tuition Fees As Appendix C and the chart in Appendix E demonstrate, there is a wide range of tuition rates for graduate business programs across Canada. Currently, tuition fees in the University of Regina graduate courses in the Kenneth Levene Graduate School of Business are as follows (for Fall 2010): • GBUS courses are $1,900 per 3 credit hour course (10 courses) for a total of $19,000. This includes textbooks and other course materials. • EMBA tuition is $34,000 for 36 credit hours as of Fall 2010 (this fee includes refreshments, parking, books, and the travel study tour). In order to keep the MBA International program competitive, tuition fees for MBA International courses are proposed at double tuition for domestic students (i.e., approximately $1,250 per course or $18,750 for the program) and triple tuition for international students (i.e., approximately $1,600 per course or $24,000 for the program). These tuition fees would not include textbooks, other course materials, nor would they include the domestic/international study tour. Appendix B shows the break-even calculation for this program occurring with an enrolment of 21 students, divided approximately evenly between domestic and international students 2.8 Additional Resources Teaching the additional 15 course sections per year required for the MBA International program will result in a need for additional faculty members. To make the program viable in the future, we will need the equivalent of 3 new faculty members teaching 4 courses each, plus 3 sessional lecturers. In the near future at the launch of the program, some of the current term appointment faculty members in the Faculty of Business Administration would be renewed (pending MBA International approval) in order to allow appropriate availability of teaching resources. Assuming that all of the revenue from this proposed MBA International program goes to the Faculty of Business Administration, the program would be self-sustaining. Any early financial losses will be covered from the Levene funds. (The funding received from Mr. Kenneth Levene was intended to enable the Faculty of Business Administration to develop new programs or projects that it would otherwise be unable to afford, so covering early financial losses in the proposed MBA International program qualifies as an appropriate use of these funds, if needed.) The MBA International program would need to continue to maintain enrolment at or above the break-even point of 21 students in order to be sustainable, and this goal seems attainable. Several universities in India and China have expressed interest in 1+1 programs with the Kenneth Levene Graduate School of Business. This means that those students would complete the first half of their graduate management degree at their home university, and would complete their final 7 or 8 courses within this program at the Kenneth Levene Graduate School of Business at the University of Regina (see Appendix B). 10 2.9 Marketing the new program The following chart demonstrates the complementary marketing we would be utilizing, positioning the MBA International as a program that meets a distinct need in the market for an early career Master’s program. We project our first intake of students for the MBA International program to be in Fall 2010, with marketing to begin in early 2010. Which degree is right for you? Master of Human • For those with experience in human resource management, Resource or who have at least 2 years experience managing people. Management This part-time program consists of 4 web-based courses and Degree: MHRM 6 one-week intensive courses (or 4 one-week intensive courses and a major project), and can be completed in 2-3 years. Master of • For those with 2 years of relevant working experience, Administration preferably in a position where they are managing or leading (Leadership) others. This part-time program consists of 10 one-week Degree: M.Admin courses (or 8 one-week courses and a major project), and can (Leadership) be completed in 2-3 years. Courses are all offered in a one- week intensive format. Executive MBA • For those who have at least 5 years of management (EMBA) experience and wish to pursue a part-time degree. In this Degree: MBA intensive 16-month part-time program, classes are held 8 hours per week, alternating between Fridays and Saturdays. Master of Business • For those with at least 2 years of business experience. The Administration program consists primarily of 3-hour evening courses, and Degree: MBA can be completed in about 3 years of part-time studies. MBA International • For domestic or international students who have recently (MBA) graduated from a business or non-business undergraduate Degree: MBA* degree program. No previous work experience is required, and this full-time cohort based program can be completed in 12 to 20 months, depending on the speed at which the student wishes to progress. * major would be suppressed on parchment 11 2.10 Eventual Replacement of Regular MBA program The proposed new MBA International program will be evaluated after one year, and it will be determined whether it is desirable to phase out our regular part-time MBA program (delivered primarily through evening courses) and replace it with a part-time version of the MBA International program. Early considerations suggest this is a favourable idea; however, a year of experience in running the first cohort of the MBA International program is desirable before making a final determination about replacing the existing part-time MBA program. There are several benefits of replacing the current part-time MBA program with the MBA International program: • It may be easier to run one version of an MBA program rather than 2 versions. • The MBA International program includes a greater variety of required study areas, making it broader in scope, and ensuring that students gain breadth of exposure to business areas. • The MBA International program is a rigorous program that will demand high levels of achievement from students, making it a worthy replacement for our current part-time MBA program. • The MBA International program has a focus on globalization and international business, important areas for those considering future careers in the increasingly global area of business and management. After a year of running the MBA International program, we will be in a better position to determine whether it would be an advantageous replacement for our existing part-time MBA program. 12 3.

The International/Domestic study tour would be offered in conjunction with our other graduate programs, and would be open to both MBA International and GBUS students. Assuming that all of the revenue from this program goes to the Faculty of Business Administration, the program would be self-sustaining. Any early financial losses will be covered from the Levene funds. (The funding received from Kenneth Levene was intended to enable the Faculty of Business Administration to take on new programs or projects that it would otherwise be unable to afford, so the proposed MBA International program qualifies as an appropriate use of these funds, if needed.) The MBA International program would need to continue to maintain enrolment at or above the break-even point of 21 students in order to be sustainable, and this goal seems attainable. Several universities in India and China have expressed interest in 1+1 programs with the Kenneth Levene Graduate School of Business. This means that those students would complete the first half of their graduate management degree at their home university, and would complete their final 7 or 8 courses within this program at the Kenneth Levene Graduate School of Business at the University of Regina. 19 Appendix E - Canadian MBA Tuition Comparison * Tuition Tuition Average Length Full-time Part School (University) 2009-10 2009-10 GMAT yrs. work (mos.) enrollment time (Cdn) (Intn'l) experience ▼ Joseph L.
