University of Alberta

University of Alberta

With over 100 years of history, the University of Alberta (U of A) is one of the top research-intensive universities in Canada. Serving more than 37,000 students, the U of A is also one of the largest universities in Canada. Sixteen faculties offer over 60 undergraduate degrees, 200 majors and specializations and approximately 5,000 individual courses.

The U of A not only provides a variety of program options but also a variety of campuses for students to study at. The main campus in Edmonton, which covers about 50 city blocks with more than 90 buildings on the edge of the North Saskatchewan River Valley, houses the majority of U of A programs. For students interested in pursuing their studies in French, the U of A's Campus Saint-Jean in east central Edmonton offers degree programs in arts, commerce, education and science. The Augustana Campus located in Camrose, about 45 minutes southeast of Edmonton, is a small campus specializing in liberal arts and science programs. Students can also choose to study for up to one year of their program at the U of A campus in Cortona, Italy, where classes are offered in a variety of liberal arts subjects.

The U of A offers a rich and varied student life through more than 400 clubs and groups and a residence program for over 4,000 students. Other highlights of the university include over $25 million in undergraduate scholarships and the second largest research library system in the country. Prospective students can arrange a campus visit, including a meeting with an advisor and a guided tour.

Admission Requirements
The Faculty of Business and the Faculty of Law offer a program of joint study which permits highly qualified students to earn both the M.B.A. and LL.B. degrees in four years. Each student must apply separately to the Faculty of Law (for admission into the LL.B. program) and to the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research (for admission into the M.B.A. program). In addition, students must indicate on their online graduate application that they are applying to the combined M.B.A./LL.B. program. New entrants, students in the first year of the regular M.B.A. program or the first two years of the Faculty of Law are eligible to apply for the joint program. Acceptance by the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research (for admission into the M.B.A. program) and by the Faculty of Law (for admission into the LL.B. program) separately, are prerequisites for admission into the M.B.A./LL.B. program. Admission into each Faculty will be determined by the same selection process and criteria as for other students. In addition, each student must be admitted into the combined program; in this case admission will be determined by a selection committee composed of representatives of the Faculty of Law and the Faculty of Business. Since this is a special program, particular attention in the selection process will be given to: the student's past academic achievement; and the student's maturity, interest and a rationale of how such a combined program will enhance the student's career and professional skills. Inquiries regarding the joint M.B.A./LL.B. degree program may be directed to the M.B.A. Office in the Faculty of Business or the Faculty of Law.
