It used to be that top corporations picked up MBA graduates as fast as schools could slap mortarboards on their heads. These young guns drove corporate reorganization, product innovation and marketing and implemented new styles of leadership. They were a symbol of a new culture, and anyone serious about a career in business aspired to earn those three letters.
On September 7 and 8, 2012, McGill University (Montréal, Canada) hosted a unique workshop designed to foster green innovation in the next generation. Ten MBA students from the Desautels Faculty of Management and ten PhD candidates from the departments of chemistry and civil engineering were gathered to reflect on this concept. Two guests speakers gave lectures putting green chemistry in the context of industry.
Despite high per-capita spending, health care in Canada consistently underperforms, according to the Commonwealth Fund, which tracks indicators for accessibility, timeliness and outcomes across a number of developed countries. The system that is straining to meet demand today will face an even higher burden in the years ahead, as the population ages. A number of Canadian business schools are looking to meet this challenge by educating future health care managers to bring new perspectives to old problems.

The Segal Centre is a meeting place for the performing arts, and plays a leading role in the artistic development of Montreal’s youth and the creation of its cultural legacy. Because its mandate is to make culture accessible, it relies heavily on donations.
The program aims to make a positive impact on the Montreal community by matching McGill students with critical social and environmental causes and the organizations devoted to them.
The goals are: to provide students with a structured and supportive environment to experience the consulting process and lead to a positive change in the community, giving them hands on experience; expand McGill's impact on the local community; and working consultants with meaningful volunteer and mentorship opportunities.
