McGill University’s Desautels Faculty of Management joins the Latin American MBA Alumni Network


We are pleased to announce that the Desautels Faculty of Management at McGill has agreed to be a business school partner with the Latin American MBA Alumni Network (LAMBA). LAMBA is a professional association that connects Latin American MBA graduates with one another and with corporations in Canada.

The network was born in response to the need of corporations, business schools, students and graduates to connect with a growing community of MBA professionals with a Latin American background living in Canada. What started in late 2009 as networking events among Spanish speakers who share culture, MBA degrees and successful careers, became a platform for multiple organizations to connect with business professionals with Latin American roots. Since its launch in 2010, LAMBA has welcomed more than 450 members.

“Many of our MBA students and graduates are from Latin American countries. They often choose to stay in Canada after graduation,” said Don Melville, Director of the MBA program at McGill’s Desautels Faculty of Management. “Being a part of LAMBA will give these students and alumni an additional avenue to help them build a valuable network, especially in Toronto and Montreal.”

The Desautels Faculty of Management has chosen to partner with LAMBA in support of MBA’s, past, present and future. This professional network has already proven to be beneficial in connecting recent MBA graduates with other business professionals.
