Concordia University MBA Program

Starting in September 2017, Molson is rolling out a curriculum redesign which will see the 57-credit program shrink to 45 credits, allowing students to finish their MBA in as little as 16 months. No specializations are offered, but the revised curriculum feature electives organized into six themes, including business analytics, entrepreneurship, and family firms and globalization. The program will continue offering its international exchange program and case competition. New MBA candidates can also expect work in Concordia’s downtown Webster Library, where renovations should be wrapping up by the time of enrolment. The modernized facility, which houses the business library, will include new study spaces, more natural light, both zero-noise and social-learning zones, as well as a “technology sandbox” where students can experiment with digital gadgets, such as 3D printers. Classes start in January and September.
