Master in Management (MM)

The MM program provides real-life experiences from day one. Unlike traditional business programs, this 12-month program is for recent graduates from non-business backgrounds.
You'll tackle projects and learn through experimentation as part of a team, apply your knowledge in a 4-month work placement and take part in a 1-week immersive international experience where you'll collaborate with innovative and sustainable organizations.
The Master in Management is not accepting applicants for future program intakes at this time. If you are interested in learning more about our master’s programming for recent undergraduates, please contact us or explore our Master of Global Business program.

  • business development manager
  • strategic human resources analyst
  • project coordinator
  • supply chain specialist

Hands-on learning

Put learning into practice while working with an international organization. You'll develop a professional network, build your confidence and learn to thrive in complex environments. Come through your journey future-focused, workplace-ready and empowered to challenge the status quo.

Program structure

The Master in Management (MM) program is structured to begin with fall courses, followed by a 4-month paid co-op work experience in the first part of the year. Afterward, students return to campus for additional courses, an international experience and conclude with the Capstone Integrative Project in the final 4 months. This ensures a well-rounded and practical education in management principles.

Student stories

Coming into the MM program out of my Theatre BFA has been an exciting transition for me. I love my cohort and have connected with some incredible community leaders already. I'm excited to gain practical skills and experience in leadership and sustainable innovation to bring to my community and help as many artists and creators as possible.
