mcgillmba Thank you Anna for taking out time and helping candidates with their question.

I read on McGill' website that they offer concentrations in four fields. I'll quote the line from the website here:
In the second semester, students select elective courses from four concentrations, including, Finance, Marketing, Global Leadership and Technology and Innovation Management.

However, when I try to read about the concentrations in detail here https://www.mcgill.ca/desautels/program ... entrations, I see no concentration available in "Technology and Innovation Management"

I'd like to confirm if you still offer a concentration in technology or is it discontinued now?

Thank you in advance!

Hello keats !

Indeed, we used to have a concentration in Innovation and Technology but now our 4th concentration is called Business Analytics. Not to worry, we have not gotten rid of our Technology and Innovation courses! They were simply moved under other concentrations. A good example of that is the course called "Strategy and Innovation", which can be found under the Global Strategy & Leadership concentration.
Our program is constantly innovating and as you know, big data is becoming more and more essential in all aspects of business and this is why we have decided to reshift our attention towards it.
This being said, what is the most interesting about our program is that although we recommend students to take 1 or 2 main concentrations, students are not confined to a pre-defined path and have the opportunity to take classes from any of the 4 concentrations. All of our students are different with a variety of career goals, so we understand the need for a more personalized approach. I hope this answers your question! Please contact us again if you have more :)

Thanks mcgillmba This definitely helps. Infact, I loved when I researched about Global Strategy and Leadership concentration at McGill. It has all the ingredients I am looking forward to. So I went ahead with that :-D Also, this sounds interesting that you've a chance to personalize the program. So, I really like the flexibility in the curriculum.

I also learned about the fact that the application processing at McGill is rolling. So, how much time does one have to wait for from the application completion (recommendation submission, TOEFL and GMAT score fulfillment, essays, and application form) to invite for an interview ?

Thank you!

Hi again keats !
The admission process may take about 4-6 weeks to be completed. Once you have uploaded all of your documents, our team reviews them to make sure they are indeed complete. Sometimes, we have to ask you to replace a reference or to send us additional documents so it may take some time but we are trying to process everything as soon as possible! A member of our team should be in touch with you shortly after you upload all documents, so don't hesitate to reach out to them as well :)

Yes, I have received an e mail confirmation (from a program coordinator "Pina") saying that all your documents are in place and we have forwarded your application for a preliminary review. All candidates who meet our minimum requirements will be contacted for an interview within the next few weeks.

Although I wrote back, I didn't get any response. I am hoping that I hear something soon :) Thanks a lot for your help mcgillmba

I encourage you to take a look at our curriculum and see some of the courses that might spark your interest at this link:
