Applicants must have a minimum average of B+ in their four year undergraduate degree, written a GMAT or GRE and an English comprehension test if the applicants native language is not English and their undergraduate university studies were taken in a language other than English.

Master of Science in Management

The Queen's Master of Science in Management (MSc) is a 12 month program that is divided up into three full terms of study, starting with the fall term in September and ending with the summer term. Research is focused upon one of seven fields of study: "accounting", "finance", "management information systems", "marketing", "organizational behavior", "management science" and "managerial economics". The MSc program allows for an advanced level of conceptual foundations in your chosen field which would aid highly focused research.

Applicants must have a minimum average of B+ in their four year undergraduate degree in a discipline that is related to their field of interest (e.g. an honours BA in Economics would be suitable for an MSc in Finance), have written a GMAT or GRE and a TOEFL if English is not their native language. The role of the MSc program is to prepare students for higher level study in a doctoral program of their choice.

Doctoral program

The Queen's School of Business PhD program is rooted in the idea that there are substantial benefits in selecting both a major and a minor for developing analytic and research skills. Students select one major area of study from five; "accounting", "finance", "management information systems", "marketing", "organizational behavior", "management science" and "managerial economics", and a minor from within or outside of the school of business. The first two years of the Doctoral program consist of traditional courses and a research workshop with faculty to help develop research skills, and the last two years are dedicated to the development of the students thesis and dissertation. The philosophy is that the major goal of a doctoral program should be to develop the next generation of scholars and researchers so the program is geared towards developing a healthy breadth of knowledge to better aid each student's thesis.

Applicants typically have an A average in their Master's degree and are in the 85th percentile for their GMAT scores. They are expected to provide outstanding letters of recommendation, a well-developed statement of purpose and a TOEFL score of 600 if English is not their native language.
