Programs overview and application process. Future Students Info Session

Oxana P. Budjko

— For full funding consideration, I suggest that international applicants apply immediately. Be sure to first familiarize yourself with the program requirements on the program page and watch the information sessions where the academic supervisors speak about the tracks and application portfolio requirements. — The motivation should reflect the candidate's familiarity with the specifics of the program, and also prioritize preferred tracks.

— Since admission to the master's program is based on the portfolio submitted, the candidate's goal is to provide the admission committee with their strengths in their application, said Oxana Budjko, head of the international office of the Faculty of Economic Sciences. — Candidates who apply after March 15, 2024, can still receive a partial scholarship if their portfolio scores are high.
