EXTRAORDINARY STUDENT LIFE International Summer Program courses are held at our campus in downtown Montreal, one of the most sophisticated and multicultural cities in North America. Infused with a rich French heritage, Montreal offers students a unique blend of European and North American culture. There are many opportunities to learn and to communicate in both English and French. This acclaimed metropolis of over three million people offers great restaurants, museums, nightlife, music, theatre and tons of free outdoor activities.

Montreal was voted the best city for student life in Canada, according to the Globe and Mail’s 2012 Canadian University Report.

“Montreal is a festive city in the summer. The ISP not only gives me a chance to learn inside the classroom, but also allows me to explore the diverse culture of Montreal and enjoy different festivals, such as the Jazz Festival, Just for Laughs, and the International Fireworks Competition. It is just marvelous!”

“I think what makes the International Summer Program at the Desautels Faculty of Management unique and different is the people. I’ve met so many people from other cultural backgrounds, such as Brazil, USA, the UK, Singapore.... What’s also great is the professors. They know how to share their knowledge with you, and each has a very interesting teaching style.”
