Meeting McGill Admissions and Program Representatives

McGill comes to you during the fall and winter when our representatives visit schools and participate in educational fairs across North America and overseas. Prospective students, parents and guidance counsellors are invited to meet us in the fall and winter. We also suggest you contact your guidance office to find out when McGill will be visiting your school.

Open House

More than 6,000 students, family and friends from around the world visit us during our Open House every year. They spent the day touring the campus, listening to presentations and speaking with faculty and student representatives as they learned about McGill Undergraduate, Graduate and Continuing Education opportunities.

This year Open House will be on Sunday October 30, 2016.   

The BCom Experience

The Class and Alumni

Throughout your undergraduate years at McGill, you will be part of a highly motivated, closely-knit class from around the world. And as a McGill graduate, you will join an active global alumni network whose credentials are recognized worldwide.

BCom Alumni Admissions Resource Group

Members of the McGill BCom Alumni Admissions Resource Group have volunteered to share their first-hand knowledge about the BCom curriculum, the McGill community, and overall educational experience with accepted students.

Internationally-Acclaimed Professors

Through your BCom, you will have access to professors from every continent who are highly committed to sharing their research and international experience in the classroom. Over two-thirds of the professors who teach in the Faculty hail from every corner of the world and are involved in the Faculty's numerous international projects.

Student Life

The Desautels Faculty of Management offers an exceptional student life, allowing students to develop close ties with their fellow classmates, hone their professional skills and network with the business community.

Frosh Week

Frosh Week is a great time to meet your new classmates, and discover extracurricular activities offered at McGill. For ongoing events see the  Management Undergraduate Society (MUS) website.

Magnificent Montreal

McGill lies in the heart of Montreal, a wonderfully multicultural, dynamic city. Its European charm and cosmopolitan offerings lend themselves to an exceptional quality of life. It boasts the lowest cost of living of any major North American city, and is a great place to live while studying.

Campus Tours

New students, their families and friends are invited to visit the University. Walking tours of the downtown campus are led by well-informed English and French speaking McGill students. To arrange a tour, please telephone (514) 398-6555, or send an email to welcome [at]

Transfer Credit & Advanced Standing

Wherever possible, you will be notified of transfer credits and advanced standing at the time of acceptance. In many instances, however, courses must be evaluated by the Faculty. It is the student’s responsibility to provide the appropriate professor or area coordinator with a detailed course outline, including the text(s) used. The advisers in the BCom Office will be pleased to assist you in this process and point you in the right direction. Advanced Placement results with a score of 4 or 5 must be declared at the time of initial registration at the University. Please note that transfer students will need to have a minimum of 60 credits completed at McGill University in order to graduate with a McGill degree.
