Study with us

Our thesis-based graduate programs offer research intensive experiences for students to learn critical skills that equip students with a competitive advantage in jobs that have a significant research component.

The programs we currently offer include:

Master of Science in Finance (M.Sc. Finance)

Program details: Master of Science in Finance (M.Sc. Finance)

The Master of Science in Finance Program (M.Sc.) is a thesis based program that provides students with a theoretical background in contemporary finance issues and a strong foundation in empirical research methods. The first year of the two-year curriculum is devoted to course work while the thesis is the second year focus.

Due to the research intensive nature of the program and individual student supervision at the thesis stage, applicants are carefully adjudicated and enrolment is limited. Only a handful of universities across North American offer programs that have a similar research focus at the Master’s level. The degree can be used as a platform for students who wish to pursue a Ph.D. and it equips students with a competitive advantage in jobs that have a significant research component.

Master of Science in Marketing (M.Sc. Marketing)

Program details: Master of Science in Marketing (M.Sc. Marketing)

The M.Sc. in Marketing program was developed by the Edwards School of Business in response to the need for a PhD preparation program. This two year, full-time, research based program focuses on marketing theory, consumer behaviour, and research design. The first year of the program is devoted to coursework, and the second year of the program is devoted to preparing and defending a thesis.

Throughout the program, students will be paired with one of our knowledgeable and enthusiastic marketing faculty members who will provide caring mentorship to his/her graduate student through a broad range of marketing topics.

Due to the research intensive nature of the MSc in Marketing program and the need for individual student supervision at the thesis stage, enrolment is currently limited to seven students per year.

Doctor of Philosophy in Applied Economics (PhD)

Program details: PhD in Applied Economics

A PhD in Applied Economics will give you the skills to conduct research for businesses, governments, think tanks, and other research organizations, as well as to train the next generation of applied economics professionals as an academic.

The PhD program combines advanced courses in applied economics with a major research dissertation. The core of the program focuses on microeconomic theory and quantitative methods with one advanced course in macroeconomics. The student and their advisory committee determine the remainder of the student’s field courses.
