Admissions criteria

Are you the right fit?

The Master of Management Analytics is a practical degree designed for quantitatively strong students who have recently completed undergraduate studies.

Applicants must meet the following criteria

1. Undergraduate degree:

Four-year degree in a relevant degree such as, but not limited to, Computer Science, Statistics, Mathematics, Engineering, Physical Science, Economics or Commerce. 

Minimum mid-B average (3.0 on the U of T Scale) is required across courses in the final year. It is expected that the GPA of those admitted into the program will be higher than the minimum.

GPA’s are be calculated on the first undergraduate degree. If you have taken additional courses past graduation, or graduate studies those will be considered overall for your application but will not be used for your GPA calculation.

2. Quantitative proficiency:

Evidence of a high level of proficiency (a GPA of at least 3.0) in quantitative courses that cover subjects such as Calculus, Linear Algebra, and Statistics or Econometrics is required.
