Subject: John Molson MBA + CFA = Canada's #1 B-school
Concordia University is proud to announce the Goodman Institute of Investment Management at the John Molson School of Business(JMSB) has been named the first school in Canada and one of the first in the world, to become a Program Partner of Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Institute. This educational partnership with the Goodman Institute acknowledges that the program allows business students to study for both their MBA academic qualification and their professional designation at the same time.

To be awarded an official CFA partnership a university must offer at least seventy percent of the courses required for all three levels of the CFA Program. Concordia offers one hundred percent of these courses and Goodman students regularly double or triple the world pass rate for these exams. Because of its exacting standards, only the best of each incoming class graduate and fifteen JMSB students will receive their degree this coming June 12th, 2006.

Concordia?s President, Dr. Claude Lajeunesse, welcomed the announcement saying, ?This recognition by CFA Institute sends a clear message to potential students and employers that the Goodman program at Concordia is unique and internationally respected?.

Investment counselor Ned Goodman opened the doors to this partnership when he dreamed up and provided funding for the world?s first combined MBA-CFA track program for Concordia five years ago that prepared MBA students to write the CFA examinations.

This is a very important designation in the investment community that is recognized world-wide as the premier qualification for investment specialists, says Ned Goodman, founder and benefactor of the Goodman Institute of Investment Management. As the only Canadian school to receive this endorsement, the Goodman Institute of Investment Management MBA Program is honored to be recognized for its excellence.

CFA Institute is an international, nonprofit organization of more than 70,000 investment practitioners and educators in over 100 countries. This year alone, 116,000 CFA candidates will write the global exams, but it is likely only 30% to 40% will pass them.

The only other universities to be awarded CFA Program Partner designation so far are Sa?d Business School (Oxford University, U.K.), Boccani University (Milan, Italy), Boston and Marquette Universities (U.S.) and Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.

John Molson MBA + CFA = Canada´s #1 B-school

^ LOL

Why would you still pay tuition to the B-school if most of the cirriculum is the same??

CFA = Cheap MBA
Cheap MBA = Concordia MBA

i.e. CFA = Concordia MBA

Concordia is just too good for you McGilligans. We´ll just keep kicking you butt in business competitions.

Anyone who calls the CFA a cheap MBA doesn´t have a CFA.

John Molson b-school > Mcgill´s crappy b-school

Because Concordia is the only Canadian school that can properly teach the CFA. Concordia also hosts the best international MBA case competition in the world.
