But it is an investment that you will find richly rewarding, both while a student and as an alumni of McGill University.

I have listed a few important reasons why McGill is the best choice in Japan. 

McGill University:

McGill is a North American acadmic powerhouse, and its long history as a leading research and teaching institution is widely recognised: McGill is ranked first in Canada and 21st in the world in the 2013 QS World University Rankings. The Desautels Faculty of Management MBA program, which includes McGill MBA Japan, with our Integrated Curriculum is highly regarded. In October 2013, the Desautels Faculty of Management was listed within the Top 10 worldwide–#1 in Canada, #2 in North American, and #6 Globally–by the ED Universal Rankings.

Our program is also the only program in Tokyo that is listed in the Financial Times Global 100.

Our McGill MBA Japan program offers a North American MBA curriculum, and is taught in English by respected and talented professors who fly in to Tokyo from our home campus in Montreal.

All of our students and alumni carry McGill’s reputation for excellence with them. As one of our recent gradutes, Bart Bagrowicz told me: “The McGill name has done wonders for me…and continues to on an almost daily basis…it makes my job easier.”

Study in Tokyo:
Tokyo is one of the world’s greatest centres of research, technology, information and finance, which makes it one of the best laboratories for studying business. With McGill’s very diverse student body and our own faculty from the Desautels Faculty of Management in Montreal, we offer a truly global educational experience, right here in Tokyo.

McGill MBA Japan Students:
Our students are the among strongest in any program in Tokyo. All are working in Japan, and they bring a wealth of experience and insights to the classroom

International Study Trip:

All of our students take part in our International Study Trip to Montreal, which takes place during Golden Week of the second year of their program. This is a wonderful chance to find out about Montreal, Quebec, and Canada’s unique economic organisation and position, as well as to enjoy the amazing cultural dynamism of Montreal itself.

This will help to develop your worldliness as a manager, and put you in touch with an even wider network of business people.
