The Sprott MSc in Management

Sprott’s Master of Science in Management provides the research foundation to advance to doctoral studies or applied research careers in the public, private or not-for-profit sectors.

Program Structure

The Sprott Master of Science in Management program is focused on applied research about complex management problems in a rapidly changing and globally oriented environment.

MSc students will develop research skills in the interdisciplinary and collaborative environment of the Sprott School. We offer small classes and our dedicated professors serve as mentors for the duration of your program.

The degree can be completed on a full-time basis only and is 2 years in length.

The core of the program is a set of integrative design, methodology and functional areas courses. Students develop a foundation in research methods and statistics, as well as further their knowledge in an area of interest. Coursework is combined with a thesis.

For the thesis, students will undertake independent research related to issues consistent with the general focus of the program. Students will draw upon knowledge from multiple disciplinary areas within the School and may also draw from other departments in the University.

The main research areas of focus for the MSc are: Accounting, Finance, Information Systems, International Business, Management, Marketing, and Supply Chain Management.

Students can also take our MSc in Management with a Collaborative Specialization in Climate Change. See the Program Requirements for the collaborative specialization in Climate Change.

Students enrolled full-time in the MSc in Management program at Carleton University, may be permitted to transfer into the PhD program, without completing the master’s program, provided they meet certain conditions after their first year of study.
