Facilities (Desautels Faculty of Management)
Management courses are mostly taught in the Samuel Bronfman building. The seven-floor building is located at 1001 Sherbrooke Street West, on the south-west corner of McGill’s downtown main campus. The building is adjacent to McGill’s Bookstore, McLennan, and Redpath Libraries, and the Service Point across the street. Furthermore, the Bronfman building borders the main campus and other University buildings. It is a walk away from McGill’s Athletics Complex.
In recent years, the Bronfman building has witnessed major upgrades, including, thanks to Herschel Victor’s generosity, a complete renovation of the lobby and bistro. Thanks to Marcel Desautels, numerous large “learning-friendly” classrooms have been built throughout the building, including the Concourse level.
The Concourse is a floor entirely dedicated to Desautels undergraduate students, featuring medium- and large-sized classrooms, a modern computer lab, and a large student-living area. The living area includes a suite of offices for Desautels undergraduate student clubs as well as facilities for social activities. In addition, a small student-run shop, known as Dave’s, is located in the Concourse; it is dedicated to a former classmate.
The Faculty values its students’ participation in project teams for all Bronfman building renovations. Numerous areas throughout the building have been set up and are fully equipped for students to study in groups or individually. Products and furnishings are environmentally friendly and a wireless network is available throughout the building.
The Howard Ross Management Library is conveniently located in the Bronfman building and is modernly equipped for studying and research.
