Where youll learn, and how
The University of Toronto Global Execu-tive MBA is built around six two-week residential modules that take place in different locations around the globe. Lectures and seminars are supplemented with fieldwork, including site visits to local and global enterprises, and in-depth exchanges with their top executives. Between modules, students work on assigned readings, online preparatory courses, review sessions and exams, team-based projects, and individual assignments.
Our faculty have stellar reputations for their groundbreaking research, published work, leadership experience and leading-edge insight into an exceptionally wide range of management issues. They are selected from the University of Toronto and our affiliate institutions around the world to ensure the classroom experience is both engaging and culturally relevant. The blended nature of the faculty ensures that our students are exposed to a variety of perspectives on global business issues and gain access to a wide network of thought leaders. Our faculty members are available to students between modules for support with project work, business networking, and team leadership. They are aware of the balance it takes for students to complete a world-class degree while they work and make student success a top priority.
On paper, when you learn about issues in class, you look at it from one perspective. But when youre there and you talk to people and you look at it from that perspec-tive, it gives you some new and interesting context. You see how different things really are in emerging markets.

Module 1: Toronto, Canada
As an affluent, high-tech industrial society in the trillion-dollar class, Canada has a market-oriented economic system and affluent living standards. Since World War II, the impressive growth of the manufacturing, mining, and service sectors has transformed the nation from a largely rural economy into one primarily industrial and urban.
Canada enjoys a substantial trade surplus with the United States, which absorbs about three-quarters of Canadian exports each year. Canada is the U.S.s largest foreign supplier of energy, including oil, gas, uranium, and electric power. Canadas major banks emerged from the financial crisis of 2008-09 among the strongest in the world.

Module 2: Hong Kong & Shanghai, China
Since the late 1970s, China has moved from a closed, centrally planned system to a more market-oriented one that plays a major global role. Reforms include the gradual liberalization of prices, fiscal decentralization, increased autonomy for state enterprises, creation of a diversified banking system, development of stock markets, rapid growth of the private sector, and opening to foreign trade and investment. In 2014, China stood as the largest economy in the world, surpassing the US for the first
time in modern history. Still, Chinas per capita income is below the world average. The Chinese government faces numerous economic challenges, including: (a) reducing its high domestic savings rate and correspondingly low domestic consumption; (b) facilitating higher-wage job opportunities for the aspiring middle class, including rural migrants and increasing numbers of college graduates; (c) reducing corrup-tion and other economic crimes; and (d) containing environmental damage.
