Thank you for your interest in the McGill PhD Program in Management. Admission to the program is based on a number of requirements, and every application is seriously considered.
Admission decisions are usually made within 6 to 8 weeks after the deadline date of January 15. Only completed dossiers with all supporting documents will be considered. However, depending if a large volume of applications have been received, decisions on completed files may be taken 8 to 10 weeks after the deadline date.
Most doctoral program graduates seek academic positions at research universities in North America, Europe, Asia and elsewhere. A smaller number opt for research positions in leading consulting and financial organizations. While the quality and ambitiousness of the student's own research program is the most important factor in placement, attendance at doctoral consortia and the personal contacts of supervising faculty often facilitate the placement process.
Postdoctoral research offers recent doctoral degree recipients the chance to further their professional development, build on their research, and effectively transition from life as a student to that of an independent scholar. At McGill, postdoctoral researchers have the opportunity to collaborate with some of the world’s foremost professors and researchers, and work in an environment that supports and celebrates excellence.
It is important that thorough financial planning be undertaken before beginning doctoral studies. It is the student's responsibility to ensure that adequate financing is in place for the duration of the program.
