June 28, 2010 – Concordia University’s John Molson School of Business MBA program is ranked third in Canada according to the seventh annual “Knights Schools Survey” published by Corporate Knights Magazine. JMSB’s undergraduate program made remarkable improvements and rose from sixth to fourth in the country. Both programs have ranked first in Quebec since the survey’s inception in 2004.
The ranking is modeled after The Aspen Institute’s “Beyond Grey Pinstripes Survey” and evaluates how sustainability is integrated into the Canadian business education experience. This year, 47 undergraduate programs and 35 MBA programs were assessed in the areas of institutional support, student initiatives and course work.
Dean Sanjay Sharma was pleased with the 2010 survey results and noted that JMSB is committed to integrating sustainability in the overall student experience. He added: “Sustainability is embedded in JMSB: whether it’s the David O’Brien Centre for Sustainable Enterprise organizing a climate awareness event, or students raising money for the Montreal homeless, or core courses focusing on ethics and corporate social responsibility. JMSB is preparing students with the skills and knowledge to deal with environmental and social concerns in a global economy.”
