Faculty and research
Our professors are not only accomplished teachers, but also leaders in their fields and known for advancing management thinking. Faculty members bring a broad range of international experience, world-renowned research expertise, and significant resources to bear in each classroom session.
Students benefit from faculty research and inquiry long before it is disseminated into the public eye, giving them a critical edge not only in business theory but in the process by which such research is made - and funded. McGill boasts an incredible rate of successful faculty grant applications and Canada Research Chairs, making it one of the country's top research institutions. As a result, students gain access to the latest research in a wide range of management areas, including accounting, finance, information systems, marketing, operations management, organizational behaviour, and strategic management.
Bringing real-world experience into the classroom is no easy task; the Desautels Faculty of Management accomplishes this by inviting highly qualified guest lecturers - working executives in the field sharing their knowledge base with our MBA candidates. The immensely popular Teaching Executives Program identifies executives and leaders from the business community and offers them the opportunity to bring their considerable expertise into the classroom.
Based on their area of expertise, these Teaching Executives work with faculty members to deliver relevant material integrated with course learning points.
Each year, this program grows and reaches more students. Universally well-received by students, faculty, and our guest speakers, it continues to be a highly-successful opportunity for the business community to share their hard-won experience.
