Our Management Advantage

The Master of Management of Applied Science (MMASc) is a 12-month course and co-op based program for students coming from non-business backgrounds. Designed to enhance your undergraduate degree in science, social science or engineering, our professional masters allows you to fast-track your career with foundational management education from one of Canada’s leading, and most iconic universities.

The MMASc program strategically combines core management curriculum with opportunities to build and focus the unique set of skills you developed with your undergraduate education. Employers look for graduates who not only bring outstanding discipline specific knowledge, but can also apply it successfully in organizations. Students have the option of choosing from two fields: combining management education with either Applied Science or Social Science.

In your first 8 months MMASc students complete essential management and field-specific courses along with mentoring from faculty, local and international partners.

In your final term, the MMASc program takes you beyond traditional and case-based learning and into a professional environment where you will actively apply your newly acquired skills in industry. This term culminates in a Capstone event where you and your MMASc peers share, reflect and learn from experiences over the past 12 months.

Western’s MMASc program allows you to directly apply your newly learned business management capabilities. We stress strong communication skills and working collaboratively with your peers as you actively contribute to the program’s suite of business and field specific courses.

As a student, you’ll also have a chance to connect with past graduates who participate in the program, mentoring incoming MMASc students about the benefits of this intensive professional degree and future career opportunities. And as a graduate you’ll join a group of successful alumni from across the globe.

What we look for

The MMASc is selective and admission is competitive. The application includes references and your undergraduate grades, but the key to your application is a statement of interest where we ask you to outline the connection between your career goals and this professional graduate program.
