MiM Admission

 Admission Requirements

Education Vs ExperienceThe general admission requirement for the MiM is a 4-year Bachelor of Business Administration or Honours Bachelor of Commerce Degree. The minimum acceptable CGPA (Cumulative Grade Point Average) is a 3.0 out of a possible 4.0, equivalent to a "B" on a letter grade scale. The Department of Business & Administration will assess degrees earned outside of Canada to determine their equivalency.

Applications with a non-business degree, a 3-year Bachelor of Business Administration, a professional designation, or extensive professional experience will also be considered. Pre-qualifying courses may be required as determined by the Department of Business & Administration.

For suitable applicants that have not fulfilled the required undergraduate business courses, the selection committee may recommend, if necessary, undergraduate Business & Administration courses that can be taken as part of Grad Studies, Qualifying Year program. Upon successful completion, while maintaining the above noted 3.0 CGPA, of those courses, the applicant would be considered qualified for the MiM program.
