McGill University is on its way to becoming a global centre for retail-management training, thanks to a $25-million gift from Aldo Bensadoun (BCom'64, LLD'12) via the Bensadoun Family Foundation.

The goal is to launch an inter-disciplinary school where students can come together with researchers and industry insiders to develop solutions for the ever-changing modern retail landscape.

A big part of the school’s curriculum will be an experiential learning component, which will be offered in concert with retail partners.

Desautels Dean Isabelle Bajeux-Besnainou says that “With this transformative gift from the Bensadoun Family Foundation, McGill will become the global leader in retail management education and research.”
