Concordia takes pride in its emphasis on teaching and learning. Our focus on our students enables them to develop competency in areas such as communication, motivation, team-building and decision making. Many courses employ case studies or simulations of business problems, issues or dilemmas that students will encounter in the business world. This approach enables students to evaluate their decisions and strategies while learning from others as well.
To facilitate a practical as well as theoretical orientation, the program utilizes industry experts to discuss course material which will enable students to begin the important process of building relationships with influential industry leaders. The program is grounded through student evaluations, an external and independent Advisory Committee to ensure quality, a formalized practicum, and ongoing course assessments.
