First years about to start studying at the Desautels Faculty of Management are ready to join the elite of McGill campus – the McGillionaires, as it were – and become part of an incredible, tight-knit community with decades of heritage. We like to call it Bronfman High. There will come a day when they’ll have more amazing memories, crazy stories, stunning achievements, and new partners in (white collar) crime from your time in university than the rest of their friends – combined. And every year, the MUS invites them on a journey to kick off this new chapter in their lives, fuelling the start of a wild ride.
Management Frosh comprises of four of the craziest days and nights to ever experience. It features events like an Amazing Race through bars, restaurants, and landmarks across downtown Montréal, buses to a day-long beach club party, and our exclusive, Management-only night events with a surprise twist every night. Frosh is the time to make the best friends that will be by one’s side for the next few years and beyond. It’s the time to truly get acquainted with what it is to be in Management.
5 a 8, that party in the basement on Thursdays that disrupts all of the 5:00 classes. Whatever you would like to call it, come down to the Bronfman Concourse (basement) on selected Thursdays to celebrate the end of classes for the week. Enjoy refreshing beverages, good friends and good tunes with your fellow BComs and other students from across campus. Check out the 5a8 dates for this year on the MUS Calendar and make sure that you start off your weekends right!
Welcome Back Concert
The MUS Concert Series kicked off the 2014-2015 school year with a tremendous bang by opening in not one but two showrooms: the forever classic Telus Theatre and its neighbor club La Mouche. Straight out of Frosh, McGill welcomed a superstar crew to remind both incoming and returning students that McGill truly goes harder. With global artists Will Sparks, Joel Fletcher, Timmy Trumpet and the Dutch duo Vicetone returning for a second year on McGill’s biggest main stage, the Welcome Back concert was a sold-out raging success that set the tone for what the MUS has to offer in terms of social events for the rest of the year.
Halloween is upon us once again, and what better way to celebrate it than the time-honored tradition of hitting the dancefloor for one of the most intense nights the MUS Concert Series has ever seen? McGill definitely proved once more how hard it can party with this sold-out banger featuring Meaux Green and Beatport chart-topper Party Favor. Having played besides the likes of Skrillex, Jack U, and Carnage, Party Favor showed McGill how trap music is truly done. With hit singles such as “Meow”, this Los Angeles producer brought the bass to a crowd that was eager to celebrate a truly memorable Halloween.
Valentine’s Day Concert
Valentine’s day is often criticized on how it commercializes the noble traditions and virtues of love, romance, and dedication to one’s significant other. The MUS Concert Series was a tad too eager to battle consumerism and launched for its second year in a row its aptly named “F**K Valentine’s” concert. Both couples and singles were more than welcomed to make the now-classic pilgrimage to Telus Theatre to enjoy the ever-so-fine work of Torro Torro and ETC!ETC!. With a finely curated blend of big room electro, trap, and underground, these Mad Decent artists helped the MUS Concert Series redefine how Valentine’s Day weekend is celebrated at the fine scholarly institution that is McGill University. This showed closed the MUS Concert Series’ successful and sold-out calendar for the 2014-2015 school year that will undoubtedly set the bar for the years to come.
Bronfman Ball is an annual formal hosted by the MUS for all graduating students. For more information on ticket sales, please stay tuned.
Desautels Management Achievement Awards
The Desautels Management Achievement Awards luncheon gives students the opportunity to connect with corporate sponsors in a unique and professional setting. The luncheon is held once annually, where the Desautels Faculty of Management honours prominent business leaders with a Management Achievement Award. Past award winners come from a variety of industries and demonstrate outstanding leadership, entrepreneurship, ethics and corporate social responsibility – core values that capture the spirit of Desautels Management students. Not only does the event honour these prominent business leaders, but it also facilitates the connection between the academic and professional worlds by encouraging students, alumni, faculty and corporate sponsors to enjoy a three-course meal while networking and learning from the inspirational experiences of the award winners.
