McGill’s Desautels Faculty of Management is located in the heart of downtown Montreal, one of the most affordable, diverse, sophisticated, and safe cities in the world. Located on the 5th floor of the Faculty are newly renovated facilities reserved exclusively for PhD students, professors and research centres.
Doctoral candidates will receive $25,000/year in guaranteed funding for four years. Financial support for the four years is comprised of a PhD Program in Management Guaranteed Funding Award (MGFA), which includes a variety of internal sources of funding. Your MGFA may also include a McGill fellowship (to be be determined at a later date). All funding is conditional on satisfactory academic performance.
Students that receive external awards (i.e., SSHRC, CHIR, NSERC, etc.) will receive partial guaranteed funding from the supervisor/area.
If you are enrolled in a doctoral program at another university and wish to attend McGill for a limited period of time (up to a maximum of 12 months) to conduct research only, you must apply as a Graduate Research Trainee (GRT). You are encouraged to approach a faculty member who is willing to supervise your research for your duration at Desautels Faculty of Management. Once you have secured a supervisor, you will need to submit an application as a Graduate Research Trainee. The category of Graduate Research Trainee cannot be used to conduct the majority of thesis research
