The McGill PhD Program in Management provides students with a unique post-graduate educational experience that facilitates exposure to a variety of research approaches and interests, and to the combined resources of four top Montreal universities.
This collaborative program, offered in conjunction with Concordia University, École des Hautes Études Commerciales (HEC) of the Université de Montréal, and Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM), provides McGill students with access to over 250 professors and to a full array of courses taught in both English and French.
Drawing on a variety of cross-disciplinary courses, including strategy, organizational behaviour, entrepreneurship and international business, this concentration provides students with an integrated perspective on leading business issues. Students are prepared for the challenges posed by a globalizing marketplace and develop the skills valued by employers in the consulting, business development, project management, and related fields.
