Located in the vibrant heart of downtown Montreal, Concordia University’s John Molson School of Business (JMSB) is one of the leading business schools in Canada. Recognized as one of the world’s top 100 and Canada’s Top 5 MBA programs (The Economist & Bloomberg Businessweek rankings), the program takes a practical, hands-on approach to business education. Our MBA curriculum emphasizes the use of timely case studies to present material in a way that closely resembles how the business world presents situations to managers. This curriculum is customizable as students can choose to focus on a specific area or explore different aspects of management.
Work with John Molson professors who maintain close links with the business community, frequently acting as consultants to the country’s top enterprises. Many of our 50,000 alumni, 4,500 of which are MBA graduates, maintain connections with the university as advisors, employers, volunteers and guest lecturers. This provides a real benefit to MBA students, over 97% of whom find employment within three months of graduation.
