Congratulations to all of our BCom scholarship recipients!
My name is Tahsin Kadry, and I am a second year finance student at McGill University in Montreal, Canada. I have been travelling annually to countries around the globe, gaining insight about different ways of life and traditions, and this year, I wanted to take advantage of an opportunity to combine my love for travel with field specific work experience, which is why I am here in China.

Shatner (BCom'52) recently received an honorary doctorate from McGill University. Last month he was recognized at the Governor General's Performing Arts Awards. And last year, he was honoured at the Banff World Media Festival. "What isn't well known is that Montreal made a terrible mistake on my birth certificate," he says with a chuckle on the phone from Los Angeles.
Iconic actor William Shatner (BCom’52) beamed down long enough Thursday to get an honorary doctorate from his alma mater, McGill University - and luckily no Klingons showed up to spoil the fun. True to form, Shatner then announced at a news conference he now wants to be addressed as "Dr. William Shatner."
Innovation seems to be a prime directive at almost any firm we run into, regardless of industry. How do you get more of it? In these tough times the answer is no longer to throw money at it. What we increasingly need is frugal innovation, what the Indians call jugaad - an idea whose time has come. – Article by Karl Moore, Daniel Novak, and Veronica Dasovich
As McGill gears up to launch events celebrating its 190th anniversary, it is asking the world to cast a vote (or several) for the “Greatest McGillian” who ever lived. Will it be a poet, a scientist, a politician, a philosopher, an actor –or someone else?
William Shatner (BCom’52) has a very non-science fiction frame of mind about his future. The 80-year-old former Star Trek captain clearly understands the finite nature of this mortal coil as he accepts a lifetime achievement award from Governor General David Johnston.
Herschel Victor (BCom'44), who died Friday at age 88, helped turn a family business from Montreal into a clothing colossus in North America, but always made a point of sharing his wealth. More than six decades ago, the McGill commerce grad took over Jack Victor Ltd., the private company founded in 1913 by his father, and grew it into one of the largest suit manufacturers in North America.
