The Telfer School of Management offers programs leading to graduate diplomas in Organizational Performance Management, Scientific Management and Leadership, and Leadership and Management (offered only in French at the moment), as well as to the degree of Master of Science (MSc) in Management.

The master's program is designed to train experts who can contribute to academic excellence and influence change in society by undertaking and disseminating rigorous academic, applied and policy research in management, particularly in the fields of innovation management and entrepreneurship.

Students in the program may opt to complete a concentration in either one of these two fields. The concentration appears on the transcript.

The MSc in Management is a participating program in the collaborative program in environmental sustainability at the master's level.

The PhD program in Management is offered under the auspices of the Telfer School of Management. It is offered on a full-time basis in the following five fields: 

  • Accounting and Control
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Finance
  • Health Systems
  • Organizational Behavior and Human Resources

Information on the fields and research interests of the professors is posted on the program website.

The program is offered in English and in French. In accordance with University of Ottawa regulations, students have the right to produce their work, their thesis, and to answer examination questions in French or in English. 

The program is governed by the general regulations in effect for graduate studies. 

For the most accurate and up to date information on application deadlines, language tests and other admission requirements, please visit the specific requirements webpage.

Applicants who have a four-year undergraduate (honours) degree in management, in science, computer science, economics, social sciences or engineering, with the equivalent of the University of Ottawa “Minor in Administration” or “Engineering Management and Entrepreneurship Option” are eligible for admission to the MSc in Management program. To be considered, applicants must have at least a 75 per cent (B+) cumulative grade point average (CGPA), calculated in accordance with graduate studies guidelines. Students lacking academic background in management may be required to complete prerequisite coursework as a condition of admission. The specific requirements of the qualifying program will be determined by the admissions committee based on the academic and professional profile of the applicant.

Applicants to the program must have achieved at least a 50th percentile score on either the GMAT (General Management Admission Test) or GRE (Graduate Record Examinations), and submit at least two letters of recommendation and a statement of research interest of between 800-1000 words. The research statement is a letter of intent stating the applicant’s motivation for studying in the MSc in Management program, their commitment to conducting research, and outlining their preferred areas of research interest. Applicants should indicate whether or not they wish to complete one of the two concentrations and they are encouraged to identify a possible research supervisor as part of the application process.

Applicants who have successfully completed compulsory units or their equivalents prior to admission will be granted an exemption, that is, they will be permitted, on the advice of their supervisor, to replace those units with elective units in the program. To be eligible for exemption, the units  must have been completed with a grade of 70 per cent (B) or better no more than five years prior to admission to the MSc. The maximum number of units for which an exemption can be granted is six. No exemption will be given for the course MGT 5300. The general regulations in effect for graduate studies, section B 2.7, apply for transfer of units.

Students are normally admitted to the program on a full-time basis and are required to enroll full-time. Applicants applying to be admitted on a part-time basis may be considered, provided they have demonstrated a clear commitment and plan for completing their degree requirements in a timely way.

Language Requirements

Applicants must be able to understand, speak and write either English or French fluently and they must indicate in their application the language in which they intend to take their courses. Those whose first language is neither English nor French are required, at the time of application, to provide evidence of proficiency in one of these languages. Applicants whose first language is not English and who intend to study in English are required to provide one of the following as evidence of proficiency in English (the test scores cannot be more than two years old as of September 1 of the year of potential entry into the program):

  • A score of at least 250 on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), with a score of at least 5 on the Test of Written English (TWE) and a score of at least 50 on the Test of Spoken English (TSE).
