That depends who you talk to. I don't think anyone looks down on the people. I think it's actually the most selective faculty just based on the number of applications vs spaces, so the students are smart. I'm in the faculty of science and there is definitely a tendency of science students to be pretty snobby about the level of difficulty of their work as compared to other faculties. It's true management classes are somewhat remedial when compared to their science/engineering equivalents, but I think that comes with the territory. It's probably exasperated by the strong reputation of the science programs (more graduate than undergraduate for that matter) and the lack of reputation of the management program. People tend to joke that the management students tend to act a bit like contestants on "The Apprentice," but that's typical of business students. If I recall correctly, Desautels is based on the Wharton School of Upenn, if that means anything to you. Overall, I'd say it doesn't have much of a reputation as a business school, but it still has the merit of being a McGill degree.
