MONTREAL/October 30, 2006 ??

The Quebec Minister of Education, Recreation and Sports, Jean-Marc Fournier, today announced an investment of $60 million towards construction of a new building for Concordia University??s John Molson School of Business (JMSB). The announcement was made in the presence of Jacques Chagnon, Member of the National Assembly for Westmount- Saint-Louis, Benoit Labont??, Ville-Marie Borough Mayor and Eric Molson, Chairman of the Board of Molson Coors Brewing Company.

Minister Fournier made the announcement during a ceremony at Concordia. The government??s $60 million represents about half of the total construction costs.

??The John Molson School of Business building project is an excellent example of how private donors and government can work together to support higher education and our community,?? said Eric Molson. ??Together, we are encouraging a new generation of students to become strong business and community leaders who understand the value of hard work and community service.??

Concordia President Claude Lajeunesse confirmed today that the Molson family, who as long-term supporters of Concordia originally donated $10 million in 2000 to name the John Molson School of Business, will contribute an additional $10 million in support of the government??s investment toward the construction of a new building.

??With these investments, both the Quebec government and the Molson family are recognizing how important Concordia??s educational and social missions are,?? said Concordia President, Dr. Claude Lajeunesse. ??We??ve been teaching Montreal??s business leaders for more than one hundred years and will now be able to do so in state-of-the art facilities that will become a vital part of Quartier Concordia.??

Construction of the new building will begin in December, 2006 with completion expected by summer, 2009. The fifteen story building will house the JMSB??s 6,000 full- and part-time students under the same roof for the very first time.

This building will be designed by the architectural firms Kuwabara, Payne, McKenna and Blumberg and Fichten Soiferman, the same companies responsible for the exceptional construction of Concordia??s Integrated Engineering, Computer Science and Visual Arts building, located just across the street from the future JMSB site

"John Molson School of Business = Canada?s Wharton"

LMAO!
JMSB is nowhere near the top of Canadian B-schools.

The top b-schools in Canada are...

Rotman (UofT)
Ivey (UWO)
Schulich (York)
Sauder (UBC)
Queen´s

All others are cosidered good or average.
Read any business magazines from the US, Canada or UK and you will get the rankings.

JMSB´s undergrad student body is 2 to 3 times larger than the b-schools you´ve listed above. As you UofT fanboys like to boast, size does matter.

John Molson is underrated, but it will have a nicer business building than the others once completed in 2009.
