Estimated Annual Living Expenses (for a single student studying full time)
This budget is a general estimate of the living expenses that a single student in a full-time program of study would be expected to incur for each 12-month period, in Montreal.
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.
Students may track the status of the application by going to the Minerva website. From this site you may view which documents the PhD Program Office has received, 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 PhD Program in Management at McGill is offered jointly with the three other Montreal universities: Concordia University, École des Hautes Études Commerciales (affiliated with Université de Montréal), and Université du Québec à Montréal. The joint nature of the program gives doctoral students access to over 250 professors qualified to direct doctoral research among the four universities, representing a tremendous variety of research approaches and interests. In addition, the vast library resources of each university are available to all doctoral students.
