Program overview

The John Molson Executive MBA produces leaders who flourish in times of ambiguity and fast-paced change. Ranked Top 3 in Canada (The Economist, CEO Magazine), Quebec’s first Executive MBA program is rooted in real-world experience, with a focus on business fundamentals, innovation, global integration and leading change for the future.

The program covers fundamental contemporary business concepts and is divided into four thematic terms, each capped by an integrative course applying the learned knowledge in a real-life context.

Collaborate with faculty members who are carefully selected based on their in-depth subject knowledge, proven teaching and facilitation skills and hands-on familiarity with the “real life” business world. They are able to draw on both their strong academic backgrounds and their extensive business experience to give students the well-rounded understanding of business that will be required of tomorrow’s executives.
