Desautels students are behind some of the most significant charitable initiatives
Ramzi Cotran, BCom’17
Former Vice-President of the MUS
Recent Desautels graduate Ramzi Cotran (BCom’17) embodies the values of social consciousness and community engagement that the Faculty prizes. As Former Vice President of the Management Undergraduate Society (MUS), he, along with other executive members of the MUS, helped support many local charities over the course of their studies.
Every year, the MUS raises over $70,000 for local and national charities through their community involvement, and is recognized as the second largest organizational donor to the Canadian Cancer Society. Additional donations extend to organizations working to address homelessness and HIV/AIDs and to the Montreal Children’s Hospital.
For example, the Commerce and Administration Student Charity Organization (CASCO) donates all of its proceeds raised toward the Montreal Children’s Hospital. Every year, they present a philanthropic dance and fashion show, which features student performers from across the McGill campus in a movement to demonstrate social responsibility.
The MUS represents all full- and part-time undergraduate students at the Desautels Faculty of Management. They protect the interests of all shareholders and proactively try to improve the student experience at Desautels.
