JMSB LIFE

Supporting the needs of JMSB’s international students

JMSB LIFE (Living the International Faculty Experience) is an initiative intended to enhance the experience of international students at the John Molson School of Business. Through a series of workshops, social and cultural events that complement the activities of Concordia’s International Students Office, JMSB LIFE engages international students and their parents from the moment they arrive and provides them with a sense of community that helps them overcome issues like language barriers and culture shock.
