Concordia University's John Molson School of Business (JMSB) offers an MBA specifically tailored to address the leading-edge issues facing a global economy and to enable students to become business leaders and responsible global citizens. In a diverse, urban, multicultural environment, students benefit from both the school's commitment to quality education and its flexible, client-centered approach to program design.
The John Molson MBA program is designed to help students:
-Apply their knowledge and skills towards the achievements of corporate goals
-Make decisions that are socially, economically, ethically and politically responsible
-Acquire analytical, interpersonal and communication skills,
-Develop the confidence needed to succeed in an ever changing business environment.
The MBA program can typically be completed in 16 months. Studies commence in September or January. JMSB also offers an accelerated one-year (full-time) or two-year (part-time) "fast track" option to students with an undergraduate commerce degree.
Students require a dynamic business education to meet tomorrow's industry challenges. To that end, the MBA program's keystone is an interdisciplinary general management focus with a practical, case-based approach, adapted to student needs and schedules. All students complete twelve core mandatory courses and then complete the program through any of three options:
Students may further their understanding of important business concepts through the electives option, choosing seven courses of personal or professional interest.
The Business Research Project (with five additional electives) allows students to work with a faculty member of their choice to write a business plan, carry out research analysis or market study, or develop a project related to a current employment situation.
Finally, a hands-on consulting project allows students to practice management consulting skills in a real-life context as students carry out an in-depth investigation of a complex business problem within a corporation or other economic entity.
The MBA Co-op offers students the opportunity to participate in paid internships in the Canadian, US or international workplace. Other MBA alternatives include the Executive MBA (EMBA) and the MBA in Investment Management. Both of these are designed for those wishing to continue working while they pursue a degree.
