We emphasize innovation management and entrepreneurship
At the Telfer MSc in Management, we concentrate on three of the most vital topics in business and government:
- Innovation management—to enable you to examine how organizations foster, manage and fully exploit advanced products, systems and processes.
- Entrepreneurship—to make it possible for you to delve into how new companies and organizations grow, develop entrepreneurial creativity among employees, and follow opportunities and pursue new directions as a result of market changes.
- Finance—to examine mergers and acquisitions, payout policy, capital structure, corporate governance, executive compensation, corporate social responsability, applied financial econometrics, and initial public offerings.
These three areas of study are incredibly inclusive. You can use them to apply and develop the knowledge you’ve gained already from one of a range of management disciplines: marketing, finance, human resources, e-business, accounting, information systems, international management—and beyond.
The guiding objective of the Collaborative Program is to provide graduate students with the knowledge and skills needed to identify and analyze the economic, legal, policy and scientific dimensions of environmental problems, and to employ an evidence-based approach to develop rational policy options for addressing those problems.
N.B. Enrollment in the MSc in Management Specialization in Environmental Sustainability is limited.
