Welcome to Queen's MSc Program

Queen's Master of Science in Management is an exceptional 12-month program that provides an advanced-level conceptual foundation in your chosen field. It differs from an MBA program that teaches practical application of management theory.

As a Queen's MSc student, you will select an area to focus on research in one of eight fields of study: accounting, finance, management information systems, marketing, organizational behaviour, management science, managerial economics and strategy. With a Queen’s MSc, you are ready to enter high-quality PhD programs or embark on consulting and research-based careers.

Who Applies?

The program is designed for students from a variety of disciplines who have completed a 4-year undergraduate degree. For example, economics graduates may pursue an MSc in finance; engineering or math graduates may choose management science, while psychology majors may choose organizational behaviour. Many undergraduates with commerce and business degrees also apply. Other undergraduate degrees will also be considered for study in a related area.

Please note that recent government enrolment caps and international tuition bursary restrictions have limited the number of PhD spots available in our program. If you are an international student and are considering applying to the program for September 2011, please contact our office.

Prior to the start of your studies, you meet with the Associate Dean, Julian Barling and Associate Director, Annette Lilly to discuss your program.

Queen's School of Business PhD program prepares you to take a leading role in the next generation of scholars and researchers. In a world that increasingly values knowledge, you will have the skills and expertise to make a significant and lasting contribution.

It is based on a major/minor structure that allows you to hone your analytic and research skills and offers the tools to generate advanced research.
