Desautels Faculty of Management Facilities
Management courses are mostly taught in the Samuel Bronfman Building. The seven-floor building is located at 1001 Sherbrooke Street West, on the south-west corner of McGill’s downtown main campus. The building is adjacent to McGill’s McLennan and Redpath Libraries, as well as the Service Point across the street. Furthermore, the Bronfman Building borders the main campus and other University buildings. It is a walk away from McGill’s Athletics Complex.
In recent years, the Bronfman Building has witnessed major upgrades, including, thanks to Herschel Victor’s generosity, a complete renovation of the lobby. Thanks to Marcel Desautels, numerous large learning-friendly classrooms have been built throughout the building, including on the Concourse level.
The Concourse and second floor are entirely dedicated to Desautels undergraduate students, featuring medium- and large-sized classrooms, modern computer labs, and large student-living areas. Both floors include a suite of offices for Desautels undergraduate student clubs as well as facilities for social activities. In addition, a small student-run shop, known as Dave’s, is located in the Concourse; it is dedicated to a former classmate.
The Faculty values its students’ participation in project teams for all Bronfman building renovations. Numerous areas throughout the building have been set up and are fully equipped for students to study in groups or individually. Products and furnishings are environmentally friendly and a wireless network is available throughout the building.
In early 2018, the Desautels Faculty of Management inaugurated the Donald E. Armstrong Building to house its M.B.A. and specialized master's programs. The 48,666 sq. ft. expansion brings new dedicated teaching and learning spaces that benefit all in the Faculty, as well as the University at large.
