BCom Entrepreneurship Concentration
The Faculty of Management offers four Minors (for non-management students) that allow McGill undergraduates to develop a variety of managerial skills that will serve them throughout their chosen careers.
The McGill Dobson Centre’s Entrepreneurship Concentration helps prepare students to manage the rewards and challenges of managing entrepreneurial ventures through exposure to business leaders, cases in entrepreneurial management, and insights from research. The skills learned here are essential to the success of entrepreneurial ventures, “intrapreneurial” ventures within corporations, and non-profit organizations.
This program appeals to students who:
- Have a concept, process, or product idea and are looking to explore the commercialisation process
- Have a general interest in entrepreneurship
- Wish to pursue a career in a small or medium-sized growth company or non-profit
- Are interested in bringing the entrepreneurial spirit to a large corporation as an “intrapreneur”
- Are looking to strengthen their soft skills of team building, communication, and leadership

Most Management courses listed in the Entrepreneurship Minors have priority registration for students in the Minors in Entrepreneurship and reserved seating allocations by faculty. When the faculty’s allocation is full, students from that faculty will not be able to register until a place becomes available.
Students in these Minors are not permitted to take the Desautels Minors in Management, Marketing, Finance or Operations Management (for Non-Management Students).
