I see Concordia has the single worst reputation of all schools in Canada. Good stuff.

As a Concordia alumnus, I know Concordians are too critical of themselves and they have a inferiority complex much like Canadians have to Americans. Let me just say, Concordia isn´t that bad, and Concordians should stop comparing themselves to McGill. Concordia has the potential to be one of the top 10 or 12 universities in Canada, but it cannot compete with U of T, McGill, Queens, UBC, and Western. Those schools are just too rich for Concordia to compete with, but the rest are fair game.

Concordians should look at their school like it is New York University (new and progressive) and McGill is like Columbia (old and traditional) in NYC.

Concordia´s John Molson School of Business is already one of Canada´s top 10 business schools according to the National Post, Forbes magazine, the Wall Street Jounal, and the Financial Times. It´s the rest of university that needs to catch up to the business school.

JMSB students win top prize at International Business Challenge (IBC)

October 26 - 29, 2005 - Steven Bento, Christian Bonneau, Elissa Morrissette and Ian Selvarajah earned first place at the 11th edition of the International Business Challenge (IBC), held by the University of Texas in Austin. The four undergraduate students were coached by Professor Mark Haber and veteran IBC competitor Cameron Fortin.

Twenty of the best international business schools competed in this annual competition, including Harvard, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Babson, Berkeley and Case Western. For this competition, students were given 60 hours to research, analyze and solve a case reflecting a current problem faced by a major corporation. This year´s case required teams to decide what strategy Ford Motor Company should pursue in order to restore its profitability. Students then presented to a distinguished panel of judges, headed by Professor John N. Doggett, senior lecturer at the University of Texas, as well as representatives from established corporations such as Ford, Dell and General Electric.

JMSB advanced to the final round after defeating the University of Edinburgh, the University of Hong Kong, Purdue and the University of Florida in their divisional preliminaries. The Montreal team then went on to compete against the three other finalists: Queen´s, University of Washington and Georgetown University. In addition to being selected as the winning team by the panel, JMSB was also awarded the Students´ Choice Award, determined by the votes of all competing teams.

So switch to McGill you loser! It´s a friggin free country aint it? Concordia doesn´t need weak individuals like yourself who can´t contribute to their own university. Get a life!
