The Desautels Faculty of Management is one of the constituent faculties of McGill University. Founded in 1920 as the McGill School of Commerce, the faculty offers a range of undergraduate and graduate-level business programs including the Bachelor of Commerce, Master of Business Administration, and Doctor of Philosophy in management degrees. The faculty also offers joint programs with the Faculties of Law and Medicine.
Since the late 1990s, the press has repeatedly ranked Desautels as one of the top institutions for business education in the world. It has been consistently ranked the best business school in Canada by Maclean's every year since 2003, receiving the highest reputational scores by academics and recruiters. The rigorous structure of its undergraduate curriculum is often likened to The Wharton School.
In 2005, the Faculty of Management was named in honour of Marcel Desautels, a retired executive from the credit reference industry, who made a gift of $22 million to the faculty. It was the single largest donation to a Canadian business school.
The Faculty is host to the McGill Management International Case Competition (MMICC) since 2001.
