Faculty supervisors

It is not necessary to secure a supervisor prior to applying. In fact, students are typically aligned with supervisors during their first year of study. However, graduate applicants interested in research-based programs are encouraged to identify a potential faculty supervisor prior to submitting an application. Statement of Interest Question 1 in your online application is your opportunity to clearly and strongly articulate your research interest and to identify at least one faculty member whose research interest matches your own. To learn more about our faculty members’ research interests and contact information, please visit Faculty of Business Administration.
