The aim of the Dobson Centre is to offer entrepreneurial education and provide resources that support and develop entrepreneurs.

Conferences, Careers & Consulting Initiatives
Over one third of the Faculty’s professors teach and conduct research from a social or environmental perspective. The following Desautels centres and programs support research and teaching initiatives which address issues related to corporate social responsibility, social entrepreneurship, sustainability and/or non-profit management:
“Good business is more than the bottom line. It’s crucial to consider the effects of business on people, society, culture and the environment. Our greatest return on investment comes from the outstanding achievements and contributions of our students, professors and alumni—not just toward business, but toward the societies in which they live.”
We strive to integrate practical applications of management theory throughout the learning experience.
The PhD specialization in Accounting focuses on issues related to the use of accounting information by various users (i.e., investors, financial analysts), the effect of regulations and of changes in accounting practices and theory. These include financial reporting and disclosure, management accounting and control systems, and historical analysis. The program emphasizes a firm theoretical base of economics designed to complement the student's practical training.
PhD Program in Management Strategy and Organization Area
The doctoral specialization in Strategy and Organization is designed to train students in the theory and methods of strategy and organization. The Desautels Faculty of Management at McGill University is renowned for its process approach to strategy – a focus on the dynamics through which strategies emerge and are realized in organizations, and the particular concepts and methodologies for studying the dynamics of strategic change.
