Carleton University’s Sprott School of Business Teams Up with Academic Partnerships to Launch Fully Online MBA Program

March 24, 2022


DALLAS, March 24, 2022 – Today Carleton University’s Sprott School of Business, in Ottawa, Ontario, announces a partnership with Academic Partnerships (AP) to expand Carleton’s high-quality and affordable MBA degree offerings to include a fully online program starting this July.

Sprott’s online MBA responds to the growing demand for flexibility and the convenience of management education that prepares graduates to succeed in an increasingly dynamic and diverse global environment. This is especially important to working professionals who want to pursue graduate degrees to advance their careers but need the ability to study from anywhere and set their own schedule.

Students can apply to enrol in one of four market-driven, online MBA programs:

  • Master of Business Administration (MBA)
  • MBA with a concentration in Business Analytics
  • MBA with a concentration in Financial Management
  • MBA with a concentration in Management and Change

“The Sprott School of Business at Carleton University is delighted to collaborate with Academic Partnerships to offer professionals across Canada access to high quality and flexible online MBA programs,” said Dana Brown, dean of the Sprott School of Business.  

Sprott’s online MBA programs emphasize experiential learning and feature a rigorous, integrated management curriculum. There are multiple start dates throughout the year and learning is self-paced with 24/7 access to asynchronous courses to accommodate busy schedules.

“We took great care to select a partner that brings significant experience and insight to online education delivery, as well as an openness to co-create a unique academic offering that meets the needs of professional learners and organizations,” said Brown.

AP is a leading online facilitator focused primarily on adult learners and a partner to more than 55 universities, primarily regional public universities, helping those institutions expand access to top-quality, affordable and workforce relevant education. Carleton University is the first Canadian university with which AP has partnered.

Carleton and its faculty will ensure academic quality by driving all aspects of teaching, curriculum, and course content, while AP will work collaboratively in a consultative role with faculty in converting their courses to an online format.

The first cycle of classes begins July 4 with an application deadline of June 20. For more information or to apply for these programs or other University Online offerings, please visit
