Changing Programs within the Master of Management Degree: Since each program has specific admission requirements and required courses that cannot be transferred, changing programs can be challenging and is not typically possible after the first term of study. If you would like to be considered for admission to a different Master of Management program, please contact your Program Administrator.

Employment Program: The Master of Management Employment Program is a series of specially designed workshops presented by the Odette Student Success Centre. These workshops are intended to give students the necessary knowledge and skills for employment after graduation.

Student Enrolment: The majority of students in this program will be from outside of Canada. International students will find lots of support and resources at the University of Windsor. Contact your Program Administrator or the International Student Centre for more information.

Funding:   The Master of Management graduate degree is a fully accredited, self-funded professional program.  Students who register in this program are not eligible for government funding, i.e. Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP), and therefore must ensure that they have sufficient financial resources to meet their total cost of attendance.

Graduate Assistantships and University scholarships are not available to students who have enrolled in our professional programs. Research Assistantships may be available, but these are negotiated with individual faculty members. Research Assistantships are rare, and there is no guarantee on the part of the program that a position will be available.

There are, however, many opportunities for our students to work part-time, either on-campus or in the community, to help make your education an affordable investment. In addition, our Ignite Work Study program funds approximately 400 part-time jobs on campus for students demonstrating financial need related to basic living expenses and educational costs**.

**Please note that not all applicants are accepted into the Ignite program, and work placement success is dependent on the student’s job search success.

Terminal Degree: This program leads to a terminal degree. That is, it does not in and of itself provide qualifications generally required for admission post-graduate education, such as a PhD. Most PhD programs require the completion of a Master’s level thesis as an admission requirement. The Master of Management degree is course-based and does not have a thesis option. Please contact the office of Graduate Studies and Research for information on research-based programs.
