Professional Master of Industrial Relations (PMIR)


Applications are accepted under the same general regulations and requirements of the School of Graduate Studies for the MIR program.

The normal minimum academic qualification for admission to the PMIR program is a four-year bachelor’s degree with upper second-class standing (B+), or equivalent, from a recognized university.

Professional MIR candidates must also have three years of full-time employment experience in the field (or equivalent).

Candidates, with significant employment experience, who do not meet the normal minimum academic qualification, must provide additional evidence of strong academic potential. This evidence normally involves completion of two courses at the senior undergraduate or graduate level, with a minimum B+ standing in each course, or completion of the Graduate Record Admission Examination (GRE) or the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT), with a minimum score at the 75 percentile in the verbal and analytical categories.


Advanced Standing

Students in the PMIR program must complete 11 courses. PMIR applicants may be eligible for advanced standing (course credit) based on prior academic experience.

Request for advanced standing should be made at the time of application. Courses credited towards another academic degree will not be considered for advanced standing.


Program Application

Admissions are accepted on a rolling basis, as we have two intake periods; May and September.
