Minoring in entrepreneurship, majoring in success

Integrated Management Symposium Series

The Integrated Management Symposium Series invites members of the McGill and Montreal community to explore management through intimate conversations between prominent McGill academics and world leaders in their fields. The series encourages participants to broaden their perspective in order to address the significant ecological, social, and economic challenges facing today's societies.

In 2016, MDIIM's leadership dialogues will focus on the theme of “Integrity”. Managing with integrity involves the capacity to navigate trade-offs between values and resist tensions from contradictory expectations and pressures. It is an undertaking which requires reflection on organizations, communities, and one's own values.

These free symposia are generously supported by our benefactor, Marcel Desautels, C.M., LLD’07.

Teaching the impact of climate change to the leaders of tomorrow

The environmentalists and green groups at the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference, which starts today in Paris, will inevitably call for better leadership on sustainability issues. They will not have to travel far to find those willing to teach them.

Green topics become the norm

The Desautels Faculty of Management at McGill University, Montreal, “normalised” the climate-change issue as a core topic a long time ago, says Steve Maguire, director of the school’s institute for integrated management.
