Master of Management

The Grenfell Campus Master of Management (MMGT) program is the first and only program of its kind in Atlantic Canada, and one of only a few available in Canada. 

This innovative, online, course-based program allows students to explore fundamental management topics as they relate to individuals, groups and organizations. Each cohort of students will complete the program in less than two and a half years.

The Grenfell MMGT is aimed at professionals with diverse backgrounds who are either currently employed as, or aspiring to become, managers in a broad range of organizations. Admission is limited and competitive, and is primarily intended for those who have not previously studied business or management in a post-secondary environment but who are working in or toward managerial positions and require the skillset that goes along with these. Applicants who have completed an undergraduate degree in business, commerce, management, or similar may also be considered for admission. 

Program Requirements

The MMGT program comprises ten courses, to be completed online in a pre-determined sequence. Courses will normally be completed two at at time in the order outlined below. In addition, students are required to participate in an orientation workshop in August before beginning the study period.

Qualifications for Admissions

Admission to the Master of Management is limited and competitive. To be considered for admission, an application shall:

  1. hold a Bachelor's degree, with a GPA of at least 2.75, from an institution recognized by Senate; and

  2. normally have at least two years of relevant full-time work experience, deemed acceptable by the selection committee.

In exceptional cases, an applicant who has not completed a Bachelor's degree, but who meets all other requirements, may be considered for admission. Preference will be given to those who demonstrate significant professional experience and who have completed some level of post-secondary studies from an institution recognized by Senate; professional credentials may also be taken into account. An applicant who does not meet normal admission requirements may be required to complete, with a high level of achievement, certain undergraduate courses before being considered for admission.

An applicant who did not complete a Bachelor's degree at a recognized university where English is the primary language of instruction must normally complete a test of English language proficiency, as detailed in the University Calendar entry for this program.

For ten percent of seats per year, priority will be given to applicants of Indigenous ancestry who meet the minimum criteria for admission. Applicants wishing to be considered under this clause shall declare their Indigenous ancestry at the time of application.

Deadlines for Application

Applicants will be admitted to the program in the Fall (September) semester only. Applications and all supporting documents must normally be postmarked no later than March 15, 2023 for the inaugural Fall 2023 intake (this will normally be December 1 for the following September start). Applications received later than the deadline are not assured of consideration for admission to the program and applications will be processed only if time and resources permit.
