Management Minors for Non-Management Students

The Minors for non-management students are currently under revision and we may have an updated curriculum for Fall 2023.


Application deadline: June 1 (applications are closed at this time)


The Faculty of Management has four Minors (for non-management students) that allow undergraduates to develop a variety of managerial skills that will serve them throughout their chosen careers.

Students may only apply if they have completed 8 courses at McGill - this includes in-progress Winter term courses. Students may not switch minors once they have been accepted.

  • May not be pursuing or have completed a Minor in Management, Marketing, Finance, Operations Management, or Entrepreneurship (for Non-Management students).
  • Students entering U3 or their final year will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis as it may be difficult to finish the minor before graduation.
