Concordia can attract a more prominent and distinguished person to be their chancellor compared to Toronto, Queens, and McGill.

It indicates Concordia deserves more respect and recognition.

Concordia Rocks!

Huh?

What are you talking about?

He might be rich but his history doesn´t have anything to do with academics and he didn´t even graduate from Concordia! He´s not a renowned scientist or anything. He may know how to bring Concordia out of debt but he doesn´t know much about bringing up Concordia´s academics.

Universities like UofT and Mcgill would never accept someone as their president just for being rich. Toronto´s presidents are almost always renowned scientists who are alma maters.

Actually he did graduate from Concordia (loyola college). Concordia is the product of the merger between loyola college and Sir george williams University.

The guy did his BA in economics (honours) at Loyola.

He then went to Mcgill to do his law degree.

A chancellor is not the same as president. Anyway, it´s great news to know Concordia has a rich businessman at the top that can donate some money to ConU. Concordia badly needs more money!

If you haven´t realized it yet, all Canadian universities are like corporations and they all compete for consumers which are students. So, it makes sense to have business leaders help manage universities, not scientists.

I dont think he will donate any money, but he has an excellent track record in executive management and thats exactly what Concordia needs. You really dont need a scientist to be on the board, why would you want that? You need leadership and foresight.

Oh, I´m sure he will.

Don´t forget Concordia´s last chancellor, Eric Molson has already donated millions to Concordia´s business school (aka John Molson School of Business).

"He then went to Mcgill to do his law degree."

HAhahaha, and is that supposed to make him prestigous? McGill law is easy to get in to, you don´t even need to take the LSAT!!

The Molson foundation donated 10Million to the commerce faculty, but that money has yet to be used. Most probably, the school will never get the building they wanted, and then the Molson name will be dropped. That would not be good.

Mcgill law school easy to get into? Yeah right. There´s no law school in Canada that´s easy to get into, at least for the regulars in this forum. Mcgill also requires the ability to read and understand French, the only Canadian law school that requires that to the best of my knowledge. The few law schools that don´t require LSAT scores (UofT is also one) tend to be the more elite places that can say f*k you to normal conventions.
