Montreal's ranking as top student city comes at time of opportunity


The Montreal Gazette publishes an opinion piece by President Alan Shepard, who writes about a time of opportunity for Concordia and other universities. He references a QS survey that has ranked Montreal the number one student city in the world. Starting from that finding, Shepard reflects on recent political changes in the U.S. and Europe and on the importance for Canada generally, and Montreal specifically, to seize every opportunity to grow what he calls "Brand Canada", as Canadian universities work to attract and retain scholars.
