Considering the MBA in Investment Management?
Don’t think you have what it takes to get a scholarship? Think again.
For those applying into the MBA in Investment Management at Concordia’s John Molson School of Business, all it takes to be considered for a scholarship is submitting an application.
The program offers a number of scholarships, including entrance scholarships, to incoming Canadian citizens or permanent resident students.
Every year, three admitted students in Montreal, and three in Toronto, are granted $9,000 each towards tuition in their first year.
These scholarships are awarded based on the overall quality of applications, including academic standing, GMAT or CFA Level I, students’ statements of purpose and their references.
Entrance scholarships are awarded after each of the three deadlines during the application period: April 30, May 31 and June 30. Accepted students whose applications were submitted before the April 30 deadline are considered for scholarships three times.
“It can literally pay to apply early,” says Marie Lyster, JMSB’s manager of business development and recruitment. “The earlier you apply, the more often you’re considered for a scholarship.”
The program also offers fellowships and awards based on exceptional academic performance and financial need.
Chase Nguyen, a second-year student, has benefited from scholarships in each of his years in the program.
"There are so many responsibilities, challenges and commitments that come with being an adult student,” says Nguyen. “The financial aid I received allowed me to devote myself 100% to my studies, making my learning experience not only possible, but truly remarkable."
