We are committed to providing opportunities to apply classroom theory to real world challenges and industry projects. Desautels MMF students benefit from experiential learning through a multitude of initiatives, many of which are supported by generous alumni.
International Study TripThe annual London, England study trip provides a window into how today’s financial sector operates in a booming metropolis. Leveraging McGill’s extensive alumni network, students meet with leaders in major financial organizations that operate across areas such as asset management, real estate, risk management, and private equity.

The MMF Program offers students the unique opportunity to run Desautels Capital Management Inc. (DCM), Canada’s first university-owned, student-run registered multi-million dollar investment firm. DCM offers a unique hands-on experience in asset management that allows students to hit the ground running when they enter the workplace.
