Master in Management FAQ

Here are the frequently asked questions about the Master in Management program (formerly called the Master of Management program) offered at the University of Victoria.

Why are business courses required from non-business degree graduates?
We want to jump right into the good stuff, so we ask students to take the foundations of business education first. You can complete these five courses at any point during your undergraduate degree. You can complete them either at UVic or from another recognized institution. For more details on the prerequisite business courses, visit our Admissions page or contact us at gillasst@uvic.ca. 

Do UVIC undergraduates get preferred access to the program?

What kind of career support do you provide to MM students?

Like our approach with work placement, we take a very personalized approach with providing career support, ensuring students are expanding personal networks and building important skill sets. We work with students to provide one-on-one coaching. We also provide exposure to a variety of organizations throughout the course of the program. 

How does sustainability factor into MM?
