Dare to chart your own course

In business education, as in business, what works today will not necessarily work tomorrow. There’s nothing traditional or expected about the McGill MBA program. There can’t be if we expect our students to complete at the highest level in a rapidly changing business environment. We recognize that each student in our incoming MBA classes comes to us with a diverse background, skillset, and vision for the future.  Our one-year and two-year program options take this diversity of need into account.

We also recognize that employers are hungry for a set of skills that most MBA programs have historically neglected to teach, like AI, financial technology, data analysis, and design thinking. When the market speaks, we listen. With flexible specializations, our students can personalize the content of their degrees to gain a competitive edge. Our MBA program charters its own course because we expect our students to do the same.
