The Integrated Management Symposium Series invites members of the McGill and Montreal community to explore management through intimate conversations between prominent McGill academics and world leaders in their fields. The series encourages participants to broaden their perspective in order to address the significant ecological, social, and economic challenges facing today's societies.
These free symposia are generously supported by our benefactor, Marcel Desautels, C.M., LLD’07.
