Take command of your business acquisition.

Let the John Molson Executive Centre guide you on your path to ownership!   

Business acquisition can be challenging. The purpose of this highly engaging and experiential program is to align your strengths and interests with the business you wish to acquire, and to get tools and support from business owners who have experienced the highs and lows of acquisition and ownership. The program is a blend of theory and stories from industry experts and specialists. They will help you fill the gaps in your knowledge and experience.

After you develop a successful business plan, you will be eligible for a mentor to guide you through the first 6-12 months of acquiring your new business. The role of your mentor will be to: ask the tough questions; share experiences and examples; and, offer a fresh perspective.
