When to choose your specialization?

Are you a Co-op or Full-time student?
If yes, then upon completion of year 1. If you are going out on your second work-term, please declare now. 

Are you a Part-time student?
If yes, then upon completion of seven courses.

Do I need to declare if I am doing a General MBA?
Yes, Mosaic is designed to keep you in year one until you declare a second year specialization – even if you are doing a general MBA.

Can I change my specialization if I change my mind?
Yes, you may change your specialization right up until you declare your intent to graduate.
