A unique program for creative leaders

The MCM is Canada’s leading master’s degree for creative professionals, executives, entrepreneurs and researchers in the many fields related to communications management: marketing, fund-raising, digital and social media, public affairs, investor relations, and many others.

You can do the MCM while you work full-time. The program has been designed for working professionals who have active professional and personal lives. The MCM faculty and administrators understand your many commitments and are flexible to enable you work, live and study in harmony.

The MCM was created in 2007 to answer a need in the Canadian marketplace. Professionals in the fields of communications, marketing, government relations, investor relations, brand management, social and digital media, fundraising/advancement, and many others didn’t have a professional master’s degree that brings together core MBA courses and strategic communications and market research courses to give them the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to take their careers to the next level.

We’re on a path to change the way big things (vision and purpose) and small things (news and updates) are communicated within the organization. Our employee email platform allows internal communicators to build and send beautiful, responsive emails and surveys right from Outlook (or another mail client). Once sent, Bananatag tracks employee engagement metrics like opens, link clicks and survey responses to get accurate insights on the effectiveness of internal comms.
