The Master of Science in Marketing (MSc) is a research-based Master’s degree program. The program is designed for those who wish to enhance their expertise in the most up-to-date marketing theories and in the tools and methods used to conduct advanced marketing research. The research expertise available at John Molson ensures that MSc students can work closely with a faculty member in developing their thesis in an area they are passionate about. Develop advanced analytical and technical skills valued by employers and engage with your peers in small classes.
A rotating set of electives will be offered by the department. Additionally, students can take electives from the PhD program or other MSc programs with prior approval of the Graduate Program Director.
Bachelor's degree with high academic standing serves as a prerequisite for the program. To be eligible for admission, applicants must have maintained at least a B average in their final two years and have obtained a Grade Point Average (GPA) of at least 3.00 on a 4.30 scale, or the equivalent, from an accredited university.
Applicants with insufficient prior training in their expected area of specialization may be required to take prerequisite courses in addition to the required coursework in the graduate program. The specific courses to be taken are determined by the Program Director depending upon the student’s background and area of specialization.
Applicants must submit transcripts, proof of satisfactory performance on the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) or the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) completed within the previous five years, three letters of recommendation with the Academic Assessment forms, and a short statement of purpose. (Please note that the GMAT is preferred to the GRE).
Proficiency in English. Applicants whose primary language is not English must demonstrate that their knowledge of English is sufficient to pursue graduate studies in their chosen field. Please refer to the English language proficiency page for further information on requirements and exemptions.
The program is open to both full-time and part-time students.
Priority will be given to complete applications submitted by the deadline. In some cases, programs may continue to accept applications as long as there is space available.
International students: Considering the waiting period involved in meeting the entry requirements to Canada and Quebec, we strongly encourage international applicants to apply early and submit supporting documents prior to the deadline.
