Proposal for an MBA International Program
                 October 30, 2009
            Revised: November 14, 2009
             Revised December 3, 2009
                Proposal – MBA International Program

1. 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.

                 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:

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.

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.

     Note: Students will be required to choose one of the above course patterns to plan their courses
           prior to registering for their first class. 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).

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.

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.

Total Revenue:                                                               $319,500


Costs:
•   3 faculty members @ $100, 000 each                            $300,000
•   3 sessional instructors @ 5,800 each                          $ 17,400
Total cost:                                                                  $317,400

The above schedule would require offering all 15 course sections each year. 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.
