Applicants must provide a statement of purpose indicating their reason for choosing the MSc in Finance program, their career goals, and how the program will contribute to achieving those goals. Applicants may also state their preliminary research interests. Statement of purpose should be 500-1000 words in length.
Curriculum Vitae (CV)
Applicants must include an updated resume.
Three Letters of Reference*
Applicants must include at least two academic references (i.e. from former professors). The third reference may be from a business reference. A suitable referee is an individual who is well-acquainted with your education and abilities.
When completing your application online, you will be required to enter your referees’ names, affiliated institutions and email addresses (college/university or company mail). Your referees will then receive an email inviting them to complete an electronic assessment form and attach their letter of reference. It is your responsibility to follow-up with your referees to confirm they received this mail from firstname.lastname@example.org.
You are strongly encouraged to submit your application before your program’s application deadline in order to give your referees sufficient time to provide their assessment and letter of reference.
Please upload unofficial copies of transcripts, from all previous educational institutions, when you apply to Concordia because it speeds up the review of your application.
If you are currently enrolled in school:
Submit the results of previous terms and a list of your current courses
Include mid-year grades if they're available
Uploaded transcripts, however, are not official transcripts. Official transcripts are documents sent directly from an institution to our Admissions Application Centre. Unless otherwise specified, we request official transcripts only once you are admitted.
