PhD Admissions Requirements
Admission into the PhD program is judged primarily on the applicant’s ability to undertake research successfully and his/her prospects for completion of the program. Therefore, students are admitted to the program with a course of study designed, when appropriate, to supplement previous education, experience and training. For example, the Accounting program requires a Master's Degree with a minimum B+ average in a related discipline OR a Bachelor's Degree with at least an A- average plus a professional designation in accounting (CA, CMA, CGA). Students considered for the Financial Economics program may be admitted with a Master's Degree in Finance, Economics or a related discipline. The Marketing program considers students with a Master's Degree in Business or Psychology. The program in Operations & Supply Chain Management considers admitting students with a Master's Degree in Business, Engineering or Mathematics. Similarly, the program in Organizational Behaviour & Human Resource Management considers students with a Masters Degree in Business, Social Work or Psychology. Advanced standing in courses specific to the candidate’s program of study is considered.
The normal requirement for admission to the doctoral program in management is a Masters Degree (or equivalent) in business or a related field with a minimum B+ average.
Please note the supporting documents you must submit as part of your application to the PhD in Management program. Applications will only be reviewed once you have applied online and we have received all supplementary materials in our office.
As this is a competitive program with a limited number of spaces available, meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee admission into the program.
Applications for September 2015 admission are now open. The early application deadline for Fall 2015 is January 15, 2015. We will continue to accept qualified applications on a rolling basis until the program has been filled.
