Start by reviewing the requirements you need in order to apply. 

To be considered for admission an applicant must fulfill the following criteria:

  • Completion of a four-year non-business bachelor’s degree.
  • minimum admission grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 calculated over the last 60 units of university-level courses at the time of application (GMAT not required).

    • Students with an admission GPA between 2.70 and 3.0 may be considered for admission based on a combination of admission GPA and an acceptable GMAT score. Admission is based on the following equivalent achievement score: [(GPA x 200) + GMAT] >/= 1150*.

  • For information on international GPA equivalents, visit the Faculty of Graduate Studies.

Less than three years of full-time employment after graduation since the completion of an undergraduate degree.

  • Please submit your résumé.
  • Note: this program is designed for recent graduates with little work experience.

English language proficiency is critical for success in the Master of Management program. This is a fast-paced program in which all participants must be able to effectively learn and communicate in English.

Applicants for whom English is not a first language must achieve either:

  • A score of 97 or higher on the internet version of the TOEFL; OR
  • A score of 7.0 or higher on the academic version of the IELTS.

Students will be asked to answer two short essay questions touching on their motivation for pursuing the Master of Management and the key skills learned in their undergraduate degree that will benefit them during the program. Responses are limited to 250 words per question.

You may be invited to complete an interview as part of the admission process. You will be notified by Haskayne’s Graduate Admissions Office if an interview is necessary after we receive and initially review your application.
