Desautels Faculty of Management – McGill University - Part-Time MBA
Desautels Faculty of Management Part-Time MBA Program Structure
Students in the 57-credit, 32-month McGill University Desautels Faculty of Management Professional part-time MBA program typically attend around six hours of evening classes each week. Unlike many comparative MBA programs, the Desautels Professional part-time MBA program typically leaves the months of July and August free of classes. However, in year one and year two of the program, students must complete a one-week session in the early summer. Professional workshops are held on Fridays once or twice per month.
Like the full-time MBA at Desautels, the Professional part-time MBA begins with the mandatory Base Camp in early August, which helps students get back up to speed before continuing their education. Then, from September through April of the first year, students complete the “integrated” core curriculum, which features five separate modules.
After the core courses are complete, Professional part-time MBA students complete ten cross-disciplinary courses over the course of two years. These courses feature the following subjects: strategy; finance; accounting; marketing; operations management; information systems; and organizational behavior. These courses typically coincide with the selected concentrations of the students.
The second year of the program also features an international study trip.
The majority of McGill Desautels Professional part-time MBA students work in the finance industry at 45 percent, followed by consulting/entrepreneurship at 25 percent, and marketing/sales at 15 percent.
