How to prepare before the course

1. RECEIVE YOUR MATERIALS

About two weeks prior to the course, you will receive an email containing your course material to read and print (if needed) before the course.

Remember to bring a printed or virtual copy, as no copy will be supplied in class. You are welcome to bring your laptop or other device if you wish, but this is not mandatory.

2. HOW TO GET TO YOUR CLASS

Our courses take place at the McGill University Downtown Campus, Montreal, QC.

An email sent about two weeks prior to the start date will contain the building, classroom number and any other important information.

Cancellation policy

Cancellations are accepted if the email request is received at least two weeks (14 days) prior to the course start date. A full refund will be issued under these circumstances.

Late cancellation requests (received less than 14 days prior to the course start date) are not subject to refunds. However, participants may send a qualified substitute in their place at no charge. If a participant gives no notice prior to the course start date and fails to show up, the full fee will be forfeited on the first day of the course.

Course Date Cancellation

The McGill Management Centre reserves the right to cancel a course for any reason up to two weeks (14 days) before the start date.
