The Asper MSc program is very selective and only highly qualified applicants are admitted. Our program design assumes that students have completed an honours bachelor degree (or its equivalent) in either:
Before you apply to the program, connect with a faculty member whose research interests match yours. It is a key asset in the application process to have a faculty champion for your application. Having a faculty member who is already interested in you will help your application when it is presented to the admission committee.
All applicants must submit the following documents:
Additional courses beyond the core program requirements may be required subject to the discretion of the Graduate Research Programs Committee if it is deemed that the student's undergraduate preparation is not sufficient for his/her area of specialization.
For instance, a student wishing to specialize in Marketing would be expected to have taken undergraduate university courses in Consumer Behaviour and Marketing Research Methods. If the student is lacking these courses, the Graduate Research Programs Committee may require the student to take such courses to make up for this deficiency.
ALL applicants (International and Canadian): January 10.
Applicants with documents/transcripts coming from countries outside of Canada and the USA are STRONGLY encouraged to begin submitting their application 1-2 months in advance of the January 10 deadline. This will ensure early assessment of application documents and eligibility.
All M.Sc. students begin their program of study in September.
All required documents must be received by the application deadline. Incomplete applications will not be considered until all the required documents have been received. A complete application includes all the documents listed on the checklist on our Application page.
PLEASE NOTE: Applications that are submitted or completed after the deadline for the desired entry point are considered late applications. Every effort will be made to consider applicants for the session of their choice, however space is limited and admission is competitive. If we are unable to consider an applicant for the session of their choice, their application will be considered for the next available session.
