Pursue Your Goals and Change Your World

What’s inside sets us apart. It’s about how the experience will empower you to pursue your goals and change your world. It’s about who you are when you start the degree, who you are when you leave, and the community you’ll be part of. Our community of alumni is over 4,000 people strong with connections to every conceivable industry within Canada and beyond.

Rolling admission means that offers of admission are awarded year-round to all successful candidates for all of the upcoming intake dates until a program is full.
