How to Get Involved
Students can become involved at McGill in a myriad of ways through the many student societies. The Management Undergraduate Society has its own sub-organizations broken into clubs, competitions, conferences, social events, and committees. All of these organizations operate within the MUS and exclusively employ student volunteers in the Management Faculty. Students can become involved as volunteers, case competitors on delegations, directors, and more. All positions are released and can be applied to through the Apply Now section of the MUS website twice a year; once in the fall, and once in the winter. Visit ‘Apply Now’ under involvement to learn more.

Clubs exist in the MUS to foster student experiences in particular fields such as majors, or sectors of management. They are run year-long by a committee of vice presidents and aim to host a series of events ranging from competitions, to forums and tutorials. Students can sign up to be ‘Members’ of these clubs in which they pay a fee to attend events for free, and are subscribed to the club’s listserv.
The MUS sends delegations of students to different case competitions hosted locally or out-of-town to represent the faculty. Case competitions aim to put classroom knowledge to the test by having different teams compete to solve business challenges in front of judges. Case competitions can be applied to through their relevant committee and selected students are sent as teams.
Committees fall directly under an MUS Executive’s portfolio and are managed to achieve a certain task (except the Bull & Bear). Committees can handle things such charitable outreach, or apparel management for the entire MUS. Students can apply to work on a committee similarly to how they would apply to clubs, through the involvement package during one of the two yearly hiring periods.
The MUS itself hosts an array of major social events under both the VP Events, and VP Academic. Social events are run by a student committee that applies through the involvement package, and spend months planning and organizing the event that they work on. Some major events include the Cancer Auction for charity, the MUS Concert Series, and the end of year Bronfman Ball.
The MUS hosts an array of academic conferences around the year to explore different fields and subjects of management. The conferences are each run by their own student committee of executive directors and regular directors. Conferences vary from 1 day to 4 days and are open to students at McGill University. They are usually hosted in private venues around the city.
