Candidate Profile

The ideal candidate for the MCI is someone who has an unshakable, near-native command of his non-dominant languages. This command may have been acquired through extended periods of time living in places where the languages are spoken, advanced education in those languages, or lengthy use of them in a professional setting. The candidate’s dominant language should also be very refined, to the point where the candidate can use it to speak effectively and convincingly about an array of topics. Students in the MCI Program should be extremely well-read, with a nuanced understanding of world events, financial structures and political realities.

Program Requirements

  • An undergraduate degree or equivalent (typically a four-year, full-time program) from an accredited post-secondary institution.
  • A grade point average of B in the final two years of full-time study.
  • Proof of English proficiency (for candidates who did not study at a university where English or French are the official languages).
  • Pass the MCI aptitude test (Round 1 and 2)
