Expand your career options in Business and Public Management

The School of Administrative Studies is pleased to offer a Graduate Diploma in Management (GDM), specifically designed to complement non-business degrees by providing a solid understanding of the core principles of modern management in business.

Developed in collaboration with the School of Public Policy & Administration (SPPA), the GDM is structured to fit busy schedules of recent graduates or current graduate students. This eight-month program offers evening classes in the York Learning space at IBM Canada Headquarters located in Markham, ON.

The students have a unique opportunity to choose to focus either on traditional business management or to select courses dealing specifically with public and not-for-profit sectors. Upon completion of the diploma, graduates of the GDM program can continue their studies at a more advanced level with our new Master of Science in Management Practice program.
