The Goodman Institute of Investment ManagementEdit

The Goodman Institute of Investment Management is a program at the John Molson School of Business. The Goodman Institute's MBA in Investment Management Program is the world's only MBA program that fully integrates the requirements of the CFA Program. This combined curriculum permits students to study towards two world-recognized designations simultaneously, either in Montreal or Toronto. Classes are given Wednesday evenings and Saturdays to allow students to work full-time while earning the MBA and CFA.

Both undergraduate and graduate students are active participants in international business case competitions. The school also hosts two of its own competitions: the John Molson Undergraduate Case Competition and the John Molson MBA International Case Competition.

Kenneth Woods Portfolio Management ProgramEdit

A selected group of undergraduate students manage a $3.1 million endowment portfolio every year as part of the Kenneth Woods Portfolio Management Program (KWPMP)[citation needed]. The portfolio was donated by Ken Woods in 2000 for the primary purpose of training undergraduate students in investment management.

Name originEdit

John Molson (1763-1836)

The John Molson School of Business is named after businessman John Molson who was an entrepreneur in Canada during the late 18th century and early 19th century after having emigrated from England. Shortly after his arrival, at the age of 23, he founded the Molson Brewing Company, which is North America's oldest brewery.[5]

Concordia University renamed its Faculty of Commerce and Administration after John Molson in November 2000 following a $20 million donation by the Molson family towards the construction of the new JMSB building.[3][6]
