International Exchange Program
Students are encouraged to take advantage of opportunities to study abroad for a term or year. The international exposure and academic experience gained by taking part in student exchange are highly worthwhile. Through this program, students may study and earn academic credits at over 70 universities in countries around the world. Exchange opportunities are open to students in most specializations.
More information may be obtained from the BCom Student Affairs Office at 514-398-4068, studentexchange [dot] mgmt [at] mcgill [dot] ca or on the McGill website.
At least two-thirds of all departmental program requirements must be completed at McGill and there is a CGPA requirement of 3.0 to be eligible for exchange. Once accepted, students must obtain written faculty authorization for transfer credits before leaving for exchange.

New Exchange Application Process:
Please note that an online Approval of Courses and Transfer Credits form is now available through your MINERVA portal. The BCom Office is currently working on ways to ensure that your online experience is effective and efficient. To this end, this website will be updated regularly. You may contact the BCom Office with any questions: studentexchange [dot] mgmt [at] mcgill [dot] ca
The following is a list of steps that you must follow in order to ensure that your application is processed as efficiently as possible.
Complete the Approval of Courses and Transfer Credits form which can be found in the Exchange/Study Away menu on MINERVA: For fall exchanges, as of July 1st/for winter exchanges: as of November 1st. Please allow 5 to 7 business days for approvals.
This form requires that you provide URLs for all course outlines. If you are unable to do this, but have received the course outlines as an email or attachment, you must attach them to your email in Step 2.
Use the email template provided in the Approval of Courses and Transfer Credits form to notify the BCom Office studentexchange [dot] mgmt [at] mcgill [dot] ca that your application has been completed.
Please note the following:
- If you choose courses outside the Faculty of Management, which count as part of a Major/Minor Concentration you will need to email the appropriate Department at McGill to inform them that you have completed the Approval Form in order to have the courses relevant to their department approved. The same email template may be used as in Step 2. This also applies to Language courses for students in the Major in International Management.
- The application generates a generic email notifying you of the next steps in the process. The BCom Office makes all final decisions regarding course approvals.
- If you decide to cancel Exchange you must email both the BCom Office studentexchange [dot] mgmt [at] mcgill [dot] ca and the Student Exchange and Study Abroad Office (SESA) outgoing [dot] servicepoint [at] mcgill [dot] ca in writing.
