Master of Supply Chain Management (MSCM) Admission Requirements
The general admission requirements for the MSCM are listed below. Meeting the minimum admission requirements does not guarantee admission, as space in each program is limited. A holistic approach is taken during the application review process and all components of the application are thoroughly reviewed.

*Official copies of transcripts will be required if an applicant receives an offer to the program

If you hold a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from the Schulich School of Business, you may be eligible for Advanced Standing to Term 2 of the MSCM program. If you hold a Bachelor of Business Administration or Bachelor of Commerce degree obtained within the last ten years from a recognized North American business school, you may request an assessment for Advanced Standing from our Graduate Admissions team.
Note that you must have a minimum B grade in all applicable courses. If granted, Advanced Standing would allow you to enter the program at Term 2 in September and complete your degree in eight months (two terms) of full-time study or 20 months (four terms) of part-time study.
Those who have graduated from a Schulich degree-granting program within the last five years are eligible for the following:
