Bachelor of Commerce
The McGill Desautels BCom program prepares students to think beyond the bottom line
The primary objective of McGill’s Desautels Faculty of Management Bachelor of Commerce Program is to prepare students for effective professional and managerial careers. This preparation includes developing in students a capacity for critical thinking, for integrating knowledge across different disciplines, and for utilizing theory in approaching practical business problems. Students also foster the skills to become comfortable with taking risks, work as part of a team, and develop the necessary skills required to lead others. Students will acquire the essential management competencies which will enable them to offer the expertise organizations need to respond to the ever-changing and increasingly complex global marketplace.
Recognized as one of the best international business schools with the highest admission standards of any undergraduate business program in Canada. The Bachelor of Commerce (BCom) program attracts top students from around the world.
The BCom program is unique in its combination of a solid business foundation and its flexible interdisciplinary curriculum. Students can choose between various combinations of Honours, Majors, Concentrations and Minors.
Ensuring that students are on the path toward reaching their full potential is a priority. We offer a variety of resources, including attentive academic advising, a career management centre, mentorship opportunities and access to the broad network of McGill alumni.
We offer an exceptional student life, allowing students to develop close ties with their fellow classmates, hone their professional skills and network with the business community. The Management Undergraduate Society supports the 2500+ undergraduate students within Desautels, providing students with an array of events and services. Desautels has a strong winning record on the world stage through students' participation in case competitions & challenges.
Experiential Learning (EL) is a chance for students to solve real problems and work with industry and community stakeholders, gaining firsthand knowledge of working in different industries. The opportunities include International exchange programs with leading business schools worldwide, courses in international cities, an Honours in Investment Management (HIM), the Integrated Management Student Fellowship program (IMSF), McGill Not-For-Profit Consulting (MNFPC) and more.
The Faculty of Management offers four Minors (for non-management students) that allow McGill undergraduates to develop a variety of managerial skills. Certain Faculties at McGill are collaborating with the Desautels Faculty of Management to offer Minors in Entrepreneurship for undergraduate students within these faculties.
