English is the language of study at Dalhousie; therefore all applicants whose first language is not English must demonstrate their capacity to pursue a graduate-level program in English before admission. Dalhousie accepts a number of different English proficiency test scores: Internet-based TOEFL- 92; Written TOEFL - 580; MELAB - 85; IELTS - 7; CanTest - 4.5 (with no band score lower than 4.0); or CAEL 70 with no band score lower than 60. Alternatively, a prospective student may enroll in the ESL program with the Dalhousie College of Continuing Education and obtain a grade of at least A- on the final stage of that training. The language competency test may be waived if the applicant has completed a degree at a recognized university where the language of instruction is English. The claims must be verified by the Faculty of Graduate Studies. Test scores are valid for two years from the date the test was written. Applicants are also required to have a minimum GMAT score of 550.

Additional Admission Requirements:
  • Letter(s) of Reference
  • Resume/Curriculum Vitae
  • Statement of Research Interests
Applicants are required to submit at least two academic letters of reference, a Resume/Curriculum Vitae, and a statement of career interests and reasons for seeking admission to the MHA Program. Please visit the website for complete details.
