McGill University MBA Program

#6 on the 2017 CB Reputation Index

Desautels’ integrated core curriculum focuses on the key tenets of management, with workshops in skills like presentation and analysis. At the end of the first year, students are taken on a 10-day international study trip, where they meet local executives and learn about local business conditions. Destinations in recent years have included Singapore, Japan and Argentina. MBA candidates must also test their skills in the real world, either through a paid internship, international-exchange study experience, or a field practicum. Experienced executives work with Desautels students via one-on-one mentorships and impart their wisdom in a monthly speaker series. Classes start in August for both full-time and part-time students.

New this year! A renovated facility for the MBA program, set to open in late 2017
