Direct Entry

In order for a student to be eligible to apply directly to the Asper School of Business for September 2017, applicants must meet the criteria listed below:

  1. Manitoba high school graduation (or equivalent), with 5 full credits at the Grade 12 level, in courses designated S, G or U.
  2. A minimum 85% average over three courses:
    • Pre-Calculus 40S or Applied Mathematics 40S
      (Note: Pre-Calculus Math 40S is strongly recommended as applicants with Applied Math 40S will need to complete an extra, non-credit mathematics course at University in first year.)
    • English 40S
    • One other 40S or U course
  3. A minimum 60% in each of the three courses noted in point 2 above.

This option applies to current high school students or students who have already graduated from high school but who have completed less than 24 credit hours at an accredited university/college.

Note: Should the number of eligible candidates exceed the available spaces, an average higher than the 85% minimum will be required to be competitive.

  • 6 credit hours from: Anthropology (ANTH), History (HIST), Mathematics (MATH), Philosophy (PHIL), Political Studies (POLS), Psychology (PSYC) or Sociology (SOC) (6)
    (Note: Courses chosen for this requirement must be independent from courses that satisfy other program requirements)

  • 3 credit hours of electives (0-3, depending on the chosen course)
    (Note: Critical Thinking PHIL 1290 is a preferred elective choice)

Students must achieve a minimum admission GPA of 2.0. Please see the Applicant Bulletin for information on how this GPA is calculated.

Students must achieve a minimum grade of C in each course listed above.

Admission in this category is competitive.

Minimum 24 credit hours completed by April 30th
(Note: Although 24 credit hours is the minimum requirement for admission, a full year course load would require 30 credit hours; therefore, students only taking 24 credit hours for admission will need to pick up an extra 6 credit hours of course work once in the Asper School of Business.)

See Applicant Bulletin for complete details.

Track 2

If you are missing one or more of the Track 1 course requirements, you can apply for admission via Track 2, providing that you have:

  1. Completed a minimum of 24 credit hours by April 30
  2. Achieved a minimum admission GPA of 3.10, and
  3. Achieved a minimum grade of C on each course comprising the 24 credit hours.

Track 2 spots are limited in number.

Although 24 credit hours is the minimum requirement for admission via Track 1 and Track 2, a full-year course load would require 30 credit hours. Therefore, students taking only 24 credit hours for admission will need to pick up an extra 6 credit hours of course work once admitted into the Asper School of Business.
