Application process

The PhD in Management Program offers only Fall (September) admission of the same calendar year in which admission is sought. The deadline of January 15 is for all applicants (Canadian and international). Very important: Do not apply to start the program in winter or summer - applications for winter or summer will be cancelled and the application fee will NOT be refunded.

As of October 2012, McGill's formerly paper-based graduate application process has been replaced with a more convenient electronic version.

Application tracking

Students may track the status of the application by going to the uApply website. From this site you may view which documents were successfully uploade, which documents remain outstanding, when the PhD Program Committee has recommended admission to the Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies Office (GPSO) and when a final decision has been made by GPSO. In addition, you can update your address on this site so that the University always has your current coordinates.

The Dobson Centre fosters entrepreneurship within the McGill University community by providing students access to academic courses, advising, networking events, competitions, and more. We help students develop the skills required to start ventures and grow into enterprises that evoke positive change with a purpose.

Internships

As part of the MBA program, students are required to complete an experiential component, which can be a practicum, international exchange or internship.

An internship provides students with hands-on practice and valuable industry experience. Students receive guidance from the Career Services team, selecting the field and specific organization that best suits their interests, skills, and career goals. Following a selection process, students begin an internship which will put their classroom learning to use.
