MSc Program Design
The M.Sc. program in Management is designed to produce graduates who have an academically more in-depth, rigorous training in their chosen management field than is normally the case either for B. Comm. (Hons.) graduates or MBA graduates from most typical North American MBA programs. In addition, the program seeks to develop strong research skills for the graduates in order to meet the needs of employers as well as to more effectively prepare Master's students for doctoral work.

Students will spend at least the first year of their program in full-time residence. During this time, they will acquire substantial breadth and depth of knowledge in their chosen area of specialization and supporting area through graduate course work in the Asper School of Business and in related faculties in the University.
