Undergraduate Degree Eligibility- MSc FAQ

 I do not have a business undergraduate degree. Can I still apply for the MSc?

Due to the highly focused coursework and thesis based nature of the MSc program, the admissions committee is looking for applicants who have a four year honours’ degree in business. Exceptionally, graduates of other disciplines may be recommended for admission to the program. For example, students with an undergraduate degree in economics may choose to pursue an MSc in Finance; whereas engineering, computer science or mathematics graduates may choose to specialize in Operations or Informaton Systems. In these cases, the students may be required to complete additional business courses at the undergraduate level before enrolling in the MSc graduate courses.
