MSc Business Analytics and Technology Management
John Molson’s research-based Masters allow students to produce the kind of research that is becoming increasingly necessary in public and private organizations or that leads toward advanced graduate business studies. Experiential opportunities are also available to adequately prepare our Master’s candidates for the job market.
This Master of Science is a 45-credit applied research program consisting of both course work (seminars) and a thesis. Full-time students can complete the program in two years, while part-time students can complete it in three to four years. International students must pursue studies on a full-time basis. Most course work is completed in the first half of the program, while the thesis is completed in the second half.
Canadian citizens and Permanent residents who wish to study part-time should understand that:
- some classes may only be offered in the Fall or Winter terms. There are no courses offered during the summer. and;
- some classes may only be offered in the morning or afternoon. Students who wish to work while studying should reach an arrangement with their employer about the potential need for a flexible work schedule.
