Accelerated Students

If you’re in the Accelerated Program, there are a few things you need to know.

Other MBA students are automatically registered for their courses — but the situation is different for Accelerated students. Accelerated students are required to register for their Fall 2023, Winter 2024, and Summer 2024 courses during the online registration period: July 4, 2023 – August 2, 2023.

Accelerated students will be sent a summary email in late June, and will be invited to a drop-in webinar taking place on Wednesday, June 28, to help you prepare for course selection. 

Course Registration 


Accelerated students will receive information on how to declare your specialization once you begin classes in Fall 2023. However, you will want to do some planning on how to meet the requirements for your desired specialization prior to course registration on July 4. The email sent to Accelerated students in late June will provide these details for you.

SGS 101 and 201 are online training modules all McMaster graduate students are required to complete in September (for students starting in the Fall term) or January (for students starting in the Winter term). Read more on the SGS Training Modules page.
