McGill University, based in Montreal, Canada, is home to the Desautels Faculty of Management.

A team from the full-time MBA program recently won the $1 million Hult Prize, presented in New York City by former US President Bill Clinton.

The winning team was one of six teams to reach the finals, and beat over 10,000 college and university students from around the world to the prize.

This year’s challenge was to create a social enterprise that will secure food for undernourished communities and, in particular, for the 200 million people who live in urban slums.

The project proposed by the Desautels team involves the production, processing, and promotion of insects for human consumption.

Taught in English by the same professors, and based on the same curriculum as our program in Montreal, the McGill MBA Japan program is aimed at experienced individuals who want to accelerate their organization’s development and build their capabilities as future global talent.

The Desautels faculty is ranked by the ED Universal ranking organization as among the top 10 faculties worldwide (#1 in Canada, #2 in North America, #6 worldwide), placing us within the top two programs in Asia.

McGill University ranks at #21 in the QS World University Rankings.

No other program in Japan can offer the same quality of teaching, reputation, or international reach as the McGill MBA Japan program.

Our next open house sessions will be held on Tuesday, December 3 and Wednesday, December 11.
