Humber and Cape Breton University have partnered for the purpose of offering a masters degree completion option to students of both the International Development and Business Management - Entrepreneurial Enterprise graduate certificate programs.  

Students completing these programs with a minimum grade of B+ or 75% in each course will receive up to a maximum of 12 credits transfer towards the 48 credits required for CBU's MBA-CED program and will also receive an exemption of the GMAT test requirement towards admission.

The CBU MBA-CED program requires the completion of a minimum of 36 credits of course work after successful completion of one of the Humber programs specified above.  This normally requires a minimum of three semesters of full time study to complete.  On a part time basis, the program can be completed over three intensive residencies in the month of July.  Students can take classes for all required coursese by spending three July sessions on campus.  Alternatively, the program is also offered on select weekends in Edmonton, Saskatoon and Toronto.

A number of CBU courses are available by distance including some of the required courses for the MBA-CED program and may, in some instances, be the ony offering of that particular course that year. CBU distance courses can be used to fulfill the credit residency requirement.
