In September 2015, MDIIM launched the first of two new courses for undergraduate non-management students: INTG 201 (Integrated Management Essentials 1) & INTG 202 (Integrated Management Essentials 2).

The most important challenges faced by society and managers in contemporary organizations, be they private, public or not-for-profit, are closely related. They do not respect disciplinary boundaries and cannot be adequately tackled with knowledge from just one management function or university faculty. The Marcel Desautels Institute for Integrated Management (MDIIM)’s mandate is to address these challenges by developing an integrated approach to management - one that breaks down disciplinary barriers, embraces multiple perspectives and encourages holistic thinking about organizations.
Full-time Desautels students are invited to apply to the 2015-16 MDIIM Student Associates Program. Each fall, a select few MBA and BCom students receive an award of $5,000 and become formally affiliated with MDIIM for a one-year term.
