Doctoral candidates will receive $25,000/year in guaranteed funding for four years. Financial support for the four years is comprised of a PhD Program in Management Guaranteed Funding Award (MGFA), which includes a variety of internal sources of funding. Your MGFA may also include a McGill fellowship (to be be determined at a later date). All funding is conditional on satisfactory academic performance.
Students that receive external awards (i.e., SSHRC, CHIR, NSERC, etc.) will receive partial guaranteed funding from the supervisor/area.

The PhD specialization in Accounting focuses on issues related to the use of accounting information by various users (i.e., investors, financial analysts), the effect of regulations and of changes in accounting practices and theory. These include financial reporting and disclosure, management accounting and control systems, and historical analysis. The program emphasizes a firm theoretical base of economics designed to complement the student's practical training.
PhD Program in Management Strategy and Organization Area
The doctoral specialization in Strategy and Organization is designed to train students in the theory and methods of strategy and organization. The Desautels Faculty of Management at McGill University is renowned for its process approach to strategy – a focus on the dynamics through which strategies emerge and are realized in organizations, and the particular concepts and methodologies for studying the dynamics of strategic change.
The fundamental objective of the Organizational Behavior Area is to train world-class researchers in this field. The term "organizational behavior" refers to a collection of theory and research that focuses on individual and group attitudes, cognitions and behaviours in organizations. The faculty in the Area represent a mix of researchers from a variety of backgrounds. Some take a more cognitive, others a more practice-oriented approach in their research.
The objectives of the doctoral specialization in Information Systems (IS) are to promote theoretical and applied research with a combined focus on scientific rigour and relevance to information systems practice. Faculty in the IS Area conduct research on the organizational and individual impacts of information technology, on systems implementation and adoption, on resistance to change, on electronic commerce and on information systems research models.
