The executive MBA program offered by Concordia’s John Molson School of Business (JMSB) was ranked 47th in the world in the first-ever ranking of EMBA programs conducted by The Economist. Programs were ranked on two broad measures: personal development/educational experience and career development. JMSB placed second among solely Canadian programs.
In the article accompanying the rankings, it was noted that of all surveyed schools, Concordia’s program had the highest proportion of female students at 41%.
The Economist collected data using two web-based questionnaires between February and May 2013. One questionnaire was filled out by business schools and included quantitative measures such as details of students and faculty, the number of overseas assignments required and statistics on alumni. The second questionnaire was circulated to current students and alumni from schools’ last three graduating classes. Over 8,400 questionnaires were completed.
“I am pleased to see our EMBA program recognized by The Economist," said JMSB Dean, Steve Harvey. "These results reaffirm the value we place in the continuous improvement of JMSB’s professional programs."Posted July 19, 2013
