Number one in Canada for entrepreneurship

For the first time, the Princeton Review has named Concordia’s John Molson School of Business in its 15th annual Top 50 Entrepreneurship: Grad rankings. John Molson placed 47th in the world for its graduate entrepreneurship studies offerings. It was the only Canadian institution included in the top 50.

The Princeton Review evaluated entrepreneurship studies at over 300 schools globally. Entrepreneur magazine will publish the results its December issue.

The Princeton Review is an American tutoring, test preparation and college admission services company. The entrepreneurship survey considered a number of areas, including academics and requirements; students and faculty; alumni entrepreneurship ventures; outside the classroom; competitions hosted by the school/program; and scholarships and aid.

“The schools that made our ranking lists for 2021 all offer exceptional entrepreneurship programs,” said Rob Franek, the Princeton Review’s editor in chief.

“Their faculties are outstanding. Their courses have robust experiential components, and their students receive outstanding mentoring and networking support. We strongly recommend these fine schools to anyone considering a college major or graduate degree in this burgeoning field.”

The John Molson School offers a number of courses devoted to entrepreneurship, specifically in the areas of new product development, new technology ventures and social entrepreneurship.

The faculty is also home to the National Bank Initiative in Entrepreneurship and Family Business, the Bob and Raye Briscoe Centre in Business Ownership Studies, the KPMG Entrepreneurial Indices research centre, the Dobson Practicum, the District 3 Innovation Hub and several research chairs in the field.

Together, these have helped the business school stand out in entrepreneurship-focused education and research.

“We are extremely proud of our entrepreneurship offerings at the John Molson School of Business, and being the only Canadian school ranked is a prestigious honour,” says Anne-Marie Croteau, dean of the John Molson School of Business.

“I want to thank our dedicated entrepreneurship team at John Molson, who work tirelessly to provide our students with such a high-quality education in this field.”
