Class Meetings Schedule

The schedule of class meetings is published at the beginning of the academic year. On occasion, there are changes to the meeting schedule that may impact the time or location of the class. The Registrar’s Office will make every effort to notify students of any such changes well in advance. It is imperative that you enable announcement notifications through your Quercus account.

Course Changes

For each program of study offered by the University through the Rotman School of Management, the courses necessary to complete the minimum requirements of the program will be made available annually. The Rotman School, however, reserves the right to change the content of courses, instructors and instructional assignments, enrolment limitations, pre-requisites, co-requisites, grading policies, and timetables without prior notice.

Course Selection

Students are automatically enrolled in courses prior to the start of the program. Due to the integrated nature of the MMA curriculum, courses must be taken in the sequence outlined in the program curriculum. All MMA courses are mandatory. Students who experience difficulty with the course load or a particular subject should consult the Associate Director for advice.

Adding or Dropping Courses

Once a student has enrolled in a core course, they remain enrolled unless they officially request to drop the course. There are official dates by which a student must withdraw without academic penalty, otherwise, a failing mark will appear on their record. In order to drop a core course—without academic penalty—no more than 50% of the course contact hours have been completed.

If unusual circumstances beyond the student’s control mean that the student will not be able to complete the coursework given reasonable extensions, graduate units may consider—with appropriate documentation—requesting late withdrawal (“WDR”). A WDR (Withdrawal Without Academic Penalty) notation will be entered on a student’s official transcript, however, it carries no credit for the course and is not considered for averaging purposes. While the Graduate Unit may support/recommend the late withdrawal request, final decision rests solely with the School of Graduate Studies.

Due to the lock-step nature of the MMA program any change in course enrolment will impact program completion, graduation, and fees. Should you need to drop a course, please contact the Associate Director.

Course Materials and Course Work

Course Packages and Textbooks

The cost of course packages and textbooks for all Master of Management Analytics courses is covered in the compulsory Rotman ancillary fee assessed to students (on the tuition fee invoice).

Copyright in Course Lectures

If a student wishes to record, photograph, video-record, or otherwise reproduce lecture presentations, course notes ,or similar material provided by instructors, they must obtain the instructor’s written consent beforehand. Otherwise, all such reproduction is an infringement of copyright and is absolutely prohibited. In the case of private use by students with special needs, the instructor’s consent will not be unreasonably withheld.

Submission of Assignments and Examinations

All assignments in Master of Management Analytics courses must be submitted by the specified deadline as indicated by the course instructor on the course syllabus, unless otherwise noted by the instructor. Any assignment received after this time will be noted by the Registrar’s Office staff. The introduction of late penalties (or special consideration) is at the instructor’s discretion.

Students must use the Individual or Group Assignment Cover Page when submitting any materials unless otherwise noted by the instructor. The Assignment Cover Page templates are available on the Quercus Program Resources page.

Leave Policy

Students registered in the Master of Management Analytics program may apply to the Director, Academic Services for a leave during their program of study for:

  • Serious health or personal problems which temporarily make it impossible to continue in the program
  • Parental leave by either parent at the time of pregnancy, birth or adoption, and/or to provide full-time care during the child’s first year. Parental leave must be completed within twelve months of the date of birth or custody. Where both parents are graduate students taking leave, the combined total number of sessions may not exceed four.

Students may make an application for a leave by completing the School of Graduate Studies Leave Request form and submitting it to the Director, Academic Services for approval. Note that the lock-step nature of the MMA program makes one or two term leaves difficult. Three term leaves (one academic year) are possible.

The termination date of the degree program (i.e. expected graduation date) will be extended by the duration of the leave taken (i.e. one, two, or three sessions as appropriate). Except for parental leave or in exceptional circumstances, it is not expected that a student will be granted more than one leave under the terms of this policy. Normally the start and finish of the leave would coincide with the start and end of a term.

School of Graduate Studies policies dictate that students on leave do not have access to University resources. As such, MMA students who are on leave will not be able to attend or audit courses; will not have card access to the Rotman building(s); and will not have access to Career Services. However, students will continue to have access to their Rotman email accounts to enable communication with the School for the duration of the leave.

Students on a leave are responsible for the monthly interest payments on their Professional Student Loan Plan for the duration of their leave. Students are advised to contact the Registrar’s Office to discuss eligibility for Rotman or University of Toronto scholarships or award reinstatement upon return. In the case of external awards, the regulations of the particular granting agency apply and students are advised to contact the granting agency directly.

Graduation Requirements

Students must satisfactorily complete all 12 required courses in order to meet the graduation requirements of the Master of Management Analytics Program.
