PhD Fees & Financial Assistance

All fees quoted are in Canadian dollars and are based on current approved rates. All fees are approximate and subject to change. The cost of textbooks will vary from program to program, and are not included in the fees listed below.

Application Fees

  • $100 for all applicants
    This fee must accompany the application package.

Annual Program Fees

Students admitted to the Ph.D. in Management program will be required to pay the following fees in each year of the program:

  • Upon receiving the offer of admission, students will be required to pay a one-time $1,000 non-refundable tuition deposit within 20 business days of the offer of admission. Failing to pay the deposit may result in the student losing their spot in the program. Once the deposit is paid, it is retained to be applied toward the first tuition payment. It is non-refundable in the event the student does not join the program.
  • Updated program fee information can be found on the Registrar's Office website. Estimated fees are listed below:
    • Domestic student:
      • Year 1 and 2 (*and 3, if student does not hold a Masters degree) - approximately $8,000
      • Year 3 and on (*see above) - approximately $3,000
    • International student:
      • Year 1 and 2 (*and 3, if student does not hold a Masters degree) - approximately $9,500
      • Year 3 and on (*see above) - approximately $4,500

Financial Assistance

Funding resources may be subject to change. In previous years, we provided fellowship of UP TO $30,000 per year for four years for each Ph.D. student. The applications to the Ph.D. in Management constitute those for this faculty-based financial support - there is no separate application form for funding required. Only applicants completing their full applications on or before the deadline date will be considered for funding.

Research funding is also available on a competitive basis through the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) doctoral fellowships. Students are encouraged to apply for research of financial support for Ph.D. program including Research Assistantship (availability may be varied). Ph.D. students may also be offered teaching positions as Ph.D. lecturers during their last two years of the program.
