The Entrepreneurs Club is an organization composeed [sic] of students from all areas and levels of study who are interested in earning about the topic of entrepreneurship.
The Management Undergraduate Society council is the elected body that represents all full-time Bachelor of Commerce students at McGill. We put on the events that make students’ stay in Management the most memorable times of their life. We also allow students to gain valuable working experience by working on organizing committees for all our events, be they social ones or programs that create close links between Management students and the business community. We’re also here to represent students’ views about academics to the faculty and the University.
An unforgettable experience. I made friends that I will cherish in my lifetime.

I have learned so many things. But, I never learned French.
It’s going to take me another four years to sober up.

Happy Happy Joy Joy!
This must be a time of mixed emotions. There is the excitement of moving on to new jobs, new responsibilities or perhaps another university program for which you have been preparing yourself. There is also some sadness at leaving one of Canada’s great educational institutions and the close friendships you have made with other students and staff members. You should know that our faculty members share many of these feelings with you. We are delighted at the success of our graduates in their careers in business and government but at the same time we are always a little sad to say goodbye to the members of the McGill family who are leaving us.
You have successfully completed a heavy and rigorous programme. You have been exposed to a wide range of new quantitative methods, to the world of computers in decision-making and to many complexities of individual and organizational behavior. You also had a chance to apply this knowledge in class discussions, in case studies, and for some of you in actual business situation. I am confident that the concepts and skills you have acquired here will serve you well in your future management career.
I hope you will give some thought to the following two suggestions. First, you should remember that in this world of enormous technological change, continuing expansion of knowledge of how people in business operate and increasing international competition, it is absolutely essential that you keep-up-to-date and informed in your area of professional competence.
Second, you should be aware that even the world’s best management education does not guarantee success in business or government. Entrepreneurs, managers in large corporations and senior government administrators all make the same point to me. To a very large extent, the success of an individual in determined by their level of motivation and willingness to work hard. You all have these qualities in some measure to have been admitted to and to have graduated from our programmes. You can now expect the pace to increase.
The Faculty has attempted to expand your horizons during the years you have spent with us. We will be proud to act as your home base for the development of your skills in the future. We hope you keep in close touch with us through your alumni organization and on an individual basis.
I wish you the best of luck for the future.
