Graduate Programs / Pre-Master Foundation Program

Introduction

This optional program allows students who do not hold a business-related Bachelor degree or equivalent to earn up to an additional 30 credits in leveling courses in order to be fully prepared for our graduate programs. Refer to the graduate admission requirements for further details.

Students who do not hold a business-related Bachelor degree or equivalent may be required to complete an inbound assessment test prior to starting the graduate program, and, depending on the results, earn an additional number of credits in leveling courses from the Pre-Master program in order to be fully prepared for our graduate programs.

Students who do not hold a Bachelor degree or equivalent should apply for a Bachelor degree program, or for the Undergraduate Diploma top-up program. Refer to the undergraduate admissions catalog for further details. Students who have 15 or more years of relevant work experience may apply directly for the Pre-Master program and will be required to complete an inbound assessment test prior to starting the graduate program, and, depending on the results, earn an additional number of credits in specific undergraduate courses.

e.g. Students who wish to earn a Master degree and who are required to complete the full Pre-Master program will need to earn 30 + 60 credits.
