MGT 6991 Telfer Research Seminar Series – compulsory every term until the student has attended the required total of seminars for their program.

Electives

In addition to the electives listed in the above schedules, courses from the MHA, MBA, EMP, and other graduate programs elsewhere on or off campus are permissible with the approval of the thesis supervisor, the MSc in Management program director, and the appropriate program director in the case of courses in other faculties and academic units or institutions.

N.B. Any prerequisites are mandatory. See the list of recommended electives. (Not all courses are offered every year. Verify the University of Ottawa Course Timetable for course offering.)

About MBA and MHA Courses

MSc students choosing MBA courses as electives will be restricted to MBA 5XXX section B or E only and ADM/MBA/MHA 6XXX. All prerequisites must be respected.

Scheduling information for MBA and MHA courses is only indicated in the Telfer timetables. The course offering section of the University Website does not give these details. If there are any timetable changes during the year, the Telfer timetables will be updated, and enrol students will be informed immediately by email using the uOttawa.ca email. Therefore, it is important to read your emails and consult the timetables on a regular basis.

A particularity of the MBA and MHA programs is that each term is divided in two blocks. Some of the courses last 6 weeks and are worth 1.5 units, while others last 12 weeks and are worth 3 units. It is essential to verify the Telfer timetables online for the start and end date of the blocks, as well as rescheduling due to statutory holidays―make-up class dates are indicated on the timetable.

Note that unlike other graduate programs, MBA and MHA courses do NOT follow the University calendar. For example, the start date is usually earlier and there is no study break in October or February.

Course Syllabi

Course syllabi will be posted on virtual campus 2 -3 weeks prior to the starting date of the courses. Students must be enroled to have access.

Exams

The exam schedules are generally posted before the end of the term, giving students plenty of time to plan accordingly (for MSc courses, see above; for ADM/MBA/MHA courses, see the Telfer timetables). Students must make the necessary arrangements to attend exams on the scheduled dates.

Deferred Exams

Requests to defer an exam must be submitted to the Graduate Office at least 2 weeks before the scheduled exam date. Students may only request a deferral on the following grounds: exam scheduling conflict, medical reasons, death in the family, business trip, or official religious holiday. Supporting documents will be required. Trips, unless they are work-related, and other personal commitments do not constitute valid reasons to defer an exam. Since the exam schedule is known well in advance, it is expected that the exams take precedence over personal trips and commitments. No exception will be permitted. Should a deferral be granted, the exam will be rescheduled as soon as possible, but after the regular exam.

Change of Grade on the Record

Revisions and appeals

The University recognizes the right of every student to see, on request after grading, all documents that have been used to establish their grade for courses in which they are duly enroled; the documents include those produced by the students themselves or evaluations written by supervisors (as part of work terms, clinical placements or internships).

The University also recognizes students' right to ask for a grade review and to appeal grades. The procedure to be followed is stipulated in Academic Regulation 10.3.
