Frequently Asked Questions

What are the admission requirements for the Ryerson MScM program?

Admission requirements can be found in detail on the Admission Process and Criteria page and the Application Deadlines page.

Can a B.Comm graduate enter the program immediately after graduation?

Yes, while work experience is preferred it is not required.

Are qualifications from other schools such as applied degrees or diplomas from CAATs accepted?

Applicants are required to have completed a 4-year undergraduate degree. University level business courses taken to supplement an undergraduate degree in another discipline will be counted toward the foundational course required. However, transcripts will be reviewed by the selection committee to determine eligibility. A college or other diploma regardless of discipline is not accepted although college graduates who have articulated to a university degree will be eligible for admission.

Can acceptance be deferred?

No. Offers of admission are made for a specific start date only.

Will there be an interview process?

If deemed necessary, the admissions committee may request an interview with an applicant.

Fees and Scholarship FAQs

International students are also eligible for these scholarships. Learn more about the Ted Rogers School of Management Graduate Entrance Scholarships and Awards.

Are fees different for international students?

Yes. International students will pay higher fees than Canadian Citizens or Permanent Residents. International students must study on a full-time basis. Please check the Ryerson fees page for a breakdown of costs.

What type of financial help can I receive other than scholarships or bursaries?

The Ontario Government has a student loan program called the Ontario Student Assistance Program, or OSAP. This program is independent of the school and requires an application. Full details can be found at on the OSAP website

** All fees quoted are based on the 2013-14 academic year.

What happens if I have to reduce my course load. Will I get fees refund?

If an MScM student needed to reduce their course load, it would not change their fees, since an MScM student is charged fees on the basis of their program. For example a full-time student would pay full fees regardless of the number of courses in which they are registered. Students in the MScM program are required to maintain registration in their program until they graduate or withdraw from the program.
