The Economist ranks Concordia University’s MBA program 78th in the worldThe John Molson MBA, offered by Concordia University’s John Molson School of Business was ranked 78th in the world and third in Canada by The Economist in its 2012 “Which MBA?” survey. The program moved up two spots from its position in last year’s survey.
The ranking evaluates full-time MBA programs around the world to assess what students find vital: career opportunities, personal development, educational experience, earning and networking potential.
“The Economist's survey results have once again recognized the quality of our MBA program," says JMSB Dean, Steve Harvey. "Results such as this confirm that that the JMSB is increasingly being viewed as a leader in a highly competitive business school market."
The John Molson MBA focuses on interdisciplinary general management and prepares students for managerial success in the complex and competitive business environment. The program is student-centric, is offered in a diverse and multicultural environment addressing the global economy’s most relevant issues.
“Universities have to embrace the global reality”, says Concordia’s president Alan Shepard. “Our graduates will know no boundaries in their careers.”
This approach serves Concordia students well and is recognized on many fronts. The university recently earned a spot in the 100 ‘new’ (under 50 years old) universities in the world by the British-based publication, Times Higher Education.
The top spot in this year’s Economist survey went to the Booth School of Business at the University of Chicago. Ranked 16th, York University’s Schulich School of Business was the highest ranked Canadian institution, followed by McGill University’s Desautels Faculty of Management, which placed 75th.
