The Desautels Faculty of Management is one of the constituent faculties of McGill University. The Faculty is host to the McGill Management International Case Competition (MMICC) since 2001.



Officially founded in 1920 as the McGill School of Commerce, the faculty originated from a two year commerce program first offered in 1906. The faculty expanded in 1968 by incorporating the Graduate School of Business Administration which graduated McGill's first MBA class.

In 2005, the Faculty of Management was named in honor of Marcel Desautels, a retired executive from the credit reference industry, who made several gifts of more than $32 million total to the faculty.


Desautels Faculty of Management is renowned for its research excellence and has constantly been ranked as one of the best B-schools in the world. For example, its MBA program was rated as "top 16 outside of USA" in Business Week; "11th outside of USA" in Forbes 2007; "96th in the world" in Financial Times 2008; and "30th in North America" in QS TOP MBAs, topping other notable Canadian business schools such as Queen's School of Business, Sauder School of Business and Schulich School of Business.[[1]]
