PhD in Business Administration


The JMSB PhD Admissions Committee reviews every application on an individual basis. The Committee looks for students with real-world work experience, strong academic credentials, clear career objectives, strong intellectual ability and leadership potential, superior interpersonal and communication skills, motivation, maturity, and a commitment to excellence. Additional criteria, such as a record of active community involvement (although not required), may also be taken into consideration.

The selection process is competitive and thorough and candidates are encouraged to apply as early as possible to the admission cycle of their choice.

To apply for admission you will need to follow the steps in the guide for the online application process. This how-to guide will lead you through the online application process.

Please note:

  • You may save your application at any point, allowing you to partially complete the process (if necessary) and return to it later. 
  • Be sure to have a valid credit card ready (Visa, MasterCard or American Express) for the application fee and a valid email address for correspondence. 

You may check the status of your application or upload missing documents on the MyConcordia portal.
