Hi Guys,

I am a first year MBA student at Desautels. If you guys need any help with anything from Admission process to information about Montreal, dont hesitate to contact me here or PM me for my contact number. I will be happy to share and help you guys.


Hey Aakash,
Thanks for offering help. Here comes my array of questions !
1. Why did you choose Mcgill over Sauder and Schullish ?
2. After spending a year in Montreal , do you think you have made a good decision?
3. How is the overall placement success for Indian students graduating from Mcgill ?
4. Toronto is just 300 miles from Montreal. Are there enough opportunities to network in Toronto , as i read that Montreal is tough for for non francophones ?

Hey everyone, all the best for your applications. I am a year 1 @ Desautels and hope to see you all next year. If you have any questions that I could help you with, please let me know. I might respond a bit slow cause of the schedule here, but will surely respond. Also, please note that I am not here officially, and the opinions/remarks/suggestions I give are from my own experiences so far. Again, all the very best to you all.

Thanks for the assistance Vijay! Can you pls tell how much of a factor does French play in recruiting and throughout the program in general? any particular industry where it's a requirement?


It depends on what you are looking for post MBA. If you want to get into Marketing in any industry here in Montreal or Québec, French skills is non-negotiable. There are certain companies that insist that you be bilingual, and there are many roles that expect you to be bilingual. There are certain companies, which if they like you, will relax it a bit but will entertain you to learn French upon joining them, which is logical as you do not want to be left out of conversations all the time during the coffee breaks. Having said that, there are two things students do: 1. Learn French. 2. Look for jobs outside Montreal (which is what I've opted for.)

Montreal is Francophone. But you'd do fine when it comes to living in Montreal and getting through the program, as the program is entirely in English and everyone in the faculty will use English as primary as long as you are not alone with them and they know you speak French. You'll have no problems whatsoever finishing the program. People are friendly and like you more if you make an attempt to speak French. Hope that helps.

Regards,
Vijay G



Vijay,

can you please elloborate a little bit more on the JOB prospects and ROI part of an McGill MBA.

and please add a bit about life at McGill for indian students

Okay Nice questions
1. Mcgill over Schulich:
Schulich- More expensive, did not offer scholarship, Location away from downtown Toronto, Mcgill has better reputation compared to Schulich.

McGill Over Sauder:
This was a tough one for me because Sauder was my dream school. But Sauder increased its tuition fees to 65K last year plus no scholarship to me. Living expenses in BC are more as compared to Quebec. Moreover, Sauder didnt guarantee me a 3 year work permit after 16 month program.

2. Yes, Montreal is a fabulous city. If you French, then its even better. Even if you don't, you can still fall in love with it. ( If you don't mind excessive construction going on everywhere). McGill is a really good school and career services put a lot of effort in making the program a success.

3. McGill is Harvard of Canada. Don't worry about placements. Having said that, it doesn't mean you will get a job just because you are a McGill student. You have to put in a lot of effort. For Indian students and those from Asian subcontinent, The biggest problem is networking because we are usually not used to it and here in North America, your resume wont get you a job but building relationship with people. So start practicing on networking right away because once you are here, that's the word you are going to hear everyday 100 times.

4. Being bilingual is an asset in Montreal but that doesnt mean you cant get a job if you dont speak French. Many of our seniors have done their internships here in Montreal and they dont speak French. We recently had a Toronto Trip to network in Toronto. Again, you have to make contacts in Toronto, invite people for coffee chats and that can mean travelling to Toronto on your own expense.

Hi Aakash,

please let us know a bit more about life at Montreal, necessasity of French, Job prospects and ROI.

I know its a very generalistic question without a specific answer but please throw some light on those aspects, so that we can come prepared.

regards
ARUN

Asked the current students from IIT - they said they didn't. Always to be on the safe side, email the admissions team to confirm - you might get other waivers too.

I do not think so as long as your UG degree was in English. But like Yashsinha has mentioned, would be best to write to Antoinette Molino and get it confirmed. I see that most Canadian universities do not care about IELTS/TOEFL if you are from India and your previous degree was in English.

There is a question in the form that asks if you have taken some form of a language test, yes, but didn't have any field asking for us to submit an artefact proving it. May be they'll ask for it if they get suspicious, but yeah you are right, best to complete it and be ready. :)

Best,

Hi,

I'm filling out the Desautels app form. Where do I have an option to upload the essays? I'm sure I selected the FT 2-year MBA and have options to fill my recommendor's names and email addresses etc. However, I don't see anywhere to write info about academic/work history and upload the essays. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

For those who have McGill essay/referee related query for application: McGill MBA online application procedure is somewhat different than most other MBA schools. You have to first submit the application fees and then only you can get access to essay, enter referee information, work history, and other application stuffs such as uploading transcript, etc. Hope this helps.
