Management Honours Programs

Honours programs:

Joint Honours programs:

Honours programs are available in Economics and in Investment Management. Joint Honours programs are available in Economics and Accounting and in Economics and Finance. For more information on these programs, please refer to www.mcgill.ca/desautels/programs/bcom/academics/course-information/honours.

The difference between the Honours and Major programs is not one of quantity but rather of quality, the Honours program involving study in greater depth. Students normally register for the Honours programs in U1 but special arrangements may be made for students wishing to enter the program at the beginning of U2.

Graduation with an Honours standing normally requires a minimum CGPA of 3.00 and an average of 3.00 in the specified courses of the Honours programs, although academic units may set higher requirements for their program GPA. The minimum grade acceptable in an Honours course is B-, although academic units may set a higher requirement for grades in their program.

Honours students who satisfy the 6-credit Statistics requirement by taking MGCR 271 and MGSC 372 (or ECON 227D1/D2) must complete ECON 468 and ECON 469 to fulfil the program requirements in Economics for the following programs: Honours in Economics for Management Students, Joint Honours in Economics and Accounting, and Joint Honours in Economics and Finance.
