This specialization focuses on providing you the opportunity to research accounting, one of the essential areas of any business, large or small. Accounting research effects the direction and profitability of companies, and the latest research in this area can be used worldwide.


This specialization will equip students with the required skills in the finance industry, such as data analytics and quantitative competencies. The knowledge that students acquire will facilitate their integration into various positions at different organizations. Finance is present in modern-day economic activities at financial institutions, corporations, regulators, and other economic agents. For instance, students will acquire tools to develop portfolio optimization and risk management, performance assessment and attribution, coping with regulations, valuations of complex and structured securities and claims, assessment of corporate investment or financing decisions, valuation of markets, transparency, and fairness. As the finance industry is constantly evolving and changing, the need for innovative research is ever soaring to guide various economic agents implementing proper decision-making processes.


This specialization provides the building blocks for aspiring scholars in marketing by exposing students to innovative research in the field. The topics covered include, marketing strategy, business-to-business marketing, online and social media marketing, consumer behaviour, and advertising.


This specialization focuses on research to impact and improve the way in which industries, such as healthcare, technology and manufacturing conduct their day-to-day business though the adoption and application of data and information systems technologies. It exposes students to real-world problems facing emerging markets, supply chains, private and public enterprises, and provides theoretical and hands-on training to students in managerial and technical problem solving research methods, including management science, structural equation modeling, business analytics, data mining, machine learning, natural language processing, mathematical programming, among others.


This specialization addresses the many challenges that impact the contemporary organization. It exposes students to innovative research from the micro-perspective: organizational behavior, human resources; macroperspective: strategy, international business, organization theory; and meso-perspective: entrepreneurship, innovation.

Our program provides many opportunities for MSc students, to not only attend conferences to enrich their learning and provide networking opportunities, but we also provide opportunities for them to present their research as well. Conferences are an opportunity for students to position themselves as a subject matter expert, encounter new and innovative research, while also providing an opportunity to network with their peers and industry experts.

One such conference opportunity is Brock University’s own annual conference, called Mapping the New Knowledges (MNK). The first MNK conference was held in 2005 as an opportunity to showcase the depth and breadth of research and scholarship being pursued by graduate students in Brock’s academic Faculties. The Faculty of Graduate Studies and the Graduate Students’ Association provide graduate students with the opportunity to connect with researchers and colleagues across faculties and disciplines in a professional, supportive and welcoming setting.

Goodman also sponsors our best and brightest students to attend and present their thesis-related research at various domestic and international conferences.

Students in our MSc program have had great success being published during their master’s program with Goodman. It’s clear that their success, and yours, is due to our invested and hands-on professors. At Goodman, students can expect access to top scholars, engaging and interesting courses, and informative lectures to inspire their research. Our program is designed to give students access to publication opportunities, which will make a strong impression on any PhD admission committee or future employer.
