Full time MBA

The full time McGill MBA curriculum takes place over 20 months, beginning in the fall and spanning two full academic years. Students are required to arrive before August 9th, as the first event takes place on that date.

  • All students are required to pursue an intensive, comprehensive Base Camp, a two-week series of preparatory lectures and courses designed to bring incoming MBA candidates up to speed on the basics of statistics, financial accounting and math for finance.
  • Students devote their first semester to the Core curriculum. The Core, consisting of five integrated modules and a final case competition, provides the organizational and environmental context for the rest of the program.
  • In the second semester, students select elective courses from four concentrations, including, Finance, Marketing, Global Leadership and Technology and Innovation Management. Over the next two semesters students continue their management training through participation in an experiential learning initiative such as a practicum, internship or international exchange.
