The Master of Science in Management (MSc (Mgt)) degree meets a growing need in graduate management education. Unlike a traditional MBA that offers education in functional knowledge and skills, our MSc (Mgt) program focuses on developing competence in research with majors in Accounting, Finance, Human Resources & Labour Relations, International Management, Marketing, and Policy & Strategy. This research-intensive program provides students with knowledge and hands-on experience to conduct rigorous and scholarly investigation into business or management issues within the student’s major. The MSc (Mgt) program will develop scholars who acquire a solid understanding of the research paths in their discipline, become skilled in the research process, and contribute knowledge to management scholarship. Our graduates are prepared to enter and succeed in high-quality doctoral programs or to pursue careers where research skills and scholarly knowledge are valued. Applicants are strongly advised to select the major where they present a breadth of completed courses, which will enable them to conduct high-level research in that discipline/major. The MSc (Mgt) program attracts students with an interest in research. The program is designed for students with an undergraduate degree in Management, Commerce, or Business. Previous work experience is not required for admission to the program. The program is divided into four modules delivered over a two-year period. The first module (Fall term) offers a two-day orientation for students entering the program. Orientation activities include building and campus tours, information technology set-up, meetings with instructors and potential supervisors, and workshops/meetings to assist with getting started in the MSc (Mgt) program. During the second module (Fall term), students begin the process of integrating research methodologies and theories relevant to various management fields. In the third module (Spring term), students specialize in their area of interest and begin to develop their research proposals in more depth. In the fourth and final module, students present their Master’s Thesis proposals and then conduct and defend their Master’s Thesis work in an oral examination. Whether your career goals are within academia, the government sector, or industry, our graduate program will provide a value-added experience that will lead to many new employment opportunities for you to explore. Students may complete their degrees in either a full-time or part-time basis at our main campus in Lethbridge and our campus in Calgary.
