With a highly international faculty and student body, we have the most selective and rigorous admission standards of any undergraduate business program in Canada.
Students acquire a solid disciplinary business foundation with a flexible and interdisciplinary curriculum, allowing them to design and personalize their education without compromising the fundamentals of comprehensive management training.
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.
International & interdisciplinary
The BCom Program has made international and interdisciplinary experiences for students a priority. Our faculty and students come from over 60 countries around the world and we promote understanding and respect for personal differences of all kinds. This unique multicultural environment provides our students with the great opportunity to learn and develop in many ways beyond academics.
The BCom Program’s highly flexible curriculum balances breadth and depth in management education. Students can choose to take a major or concentration in a specific management discipline, such as finance or marketing in order to acquire depth of applied knowledge. At the same time, the program encourages and requires breadth by allowing multiple concentrations, free electives and minors outside of the Faculty.
