At the John Molson Executive Centre, we welcome leaders and executives from a broad range of industries, positions, countries, and backgrounds because we believe that a big part of offering valuable learning experiences is ensuring that our programs include a diverse mix of participants.


Courses offered by JMEC are designated as “non-credit” and may be used to obtain a non-credit diploma or certificate at JMEC. Non-credit courses cannot be counted towards any of the degree, diploma or certificate programs offered by the Faculties or Schools of Concordia University. That said, courses offered by JMEC are recognized by industry and participants who fulfill the requirements of the program are awarded a non-credit certificate or diploma from JMEC.


Certificates of attendance are distributed to participants upon completion of the program.

You can begin the registration process on each  program page. There are two types of programs at JMEC. 

  • Application: Programs require all candidates to first apply for and be accepted into the program before they may secure their seat through payment. 

  • Registration: Programs may be entered directly by filling out the registration form and paying the applicable fee in full. 

It is strongly encouraged that you begin the registration process as early as possible to ensure time for the approval of your application and visa request if applicable, and time to ensure full payment is received in order for JMEC to confirm your seat.

Prerequisites & Qualifications

Anyone eighteen (18) years of age or older is eligible for admission to a program or a course at JMEC. There are no formal educational prerequisites to attend our programs, however every JMEC program does have a set of admissions requirements and guidelines. Please visit the specific program pages for additional details and access to the registration page.

In order for our programs to be beneficial, we require your full commitment. We aim to develop programs that fit into every participant’s busy work schedule, however we ask that you please contact us if you have any questions about the time commitment that any of our programs require.

Academic Offenses

In accordance with the Academic Code of Conduct of the University, any form of cheating, plagiarism, as well as any other form of dishonest behaviour, intentional or not, related to the obtention of gain, academic or otherwise, or the interference  in evaluative exercises committed by a student is an academic offense. Academic offenses will not be tolerated and may result in a number of sanctions including an automatic failure in a course, suspension or expulsion.  

Language Proficiency

Our programs are designed with a variety of interactive elements which may include case studies, group work and assignments. In order to really digest the information provided and grow from our programs, we highly recommend that participants have an intermediate to advanced level of English writing, speaking, and comprehension in order to keep pace with assignments, group interactions, and classroom discussions.

Team Attendance

Having a team attend a program together is an excellent opportunity to promote team building and to maximize the return the organization will see from the program. Many of our programs offer an ideal environment for teams to grow, regardless of whether the team is a group of colleagues who work directly with each other, or simply a group of leaders from the same organization.

Our team of advisors at JMEC will be happy to assist you in choosing the best program for your team to attend. Alternatively, have a look at our Custom Solutions page where we can build a program tailored to your organization’s development needs.

Programs, dates, fees, and faculty are subject to change.

JMEC reserves the right to cancel any course, workshop or program if it is deemed by JMEC that there is insufficient registration or if there is a situation that is out of JMEC and Concordia University’s control (including, without limitation, flood, fire, adverse weather conditions, strike, lockout, war, civil unrest). In this case, all fees paid to JMEC will be refunded in full and no other amount or reimbursement will be due to the attendees due to this cancellation. If applicable, it is your responsibility to obtain adequate trip cancellation insurance to cover the cost of any potential losses that may arise due to cancellation.
