The Concordia University Executive MBA

John Molson School of Business

Montreal, Quebec

Concordia University MBA Program

The school kicks off the program with a trip abroad for first-year students. Participants typically meet with local managers, government officials, and academics to learn about the business environment in the destination cities, while completing a team project. Business trips have taken students to California, Argentina, Vietnam, Brazil, Poland, Czech Republic, Turkey, Chile, Colombia, China, and India, to name a few. At home, the program is divided into four themed terms, each ending with either a case competition, a Dragon’s Den-style pitch presentation to venture capitalists, or a capstone business consulting project. Classes are held on alternating Fridays and Saturdays. The program begins in August.
