4 JOHN MOLSON MBA PROGRAM STRUCTURE The John Molson MBA Program is offered in two formats: JOHN MOLSON MBA JOHN MOLSON ACCELERATED MBA (B.COMM GRADUATES ONLY) Students in the JMSB MBA program are required to complete a 57-credit program comprised of the core courses and one of three elective options. Students in the accelerated MBA will complete a 45-credit program comprised of the core courses and one of three elective options. Full-time students will normally complete the program within 16 months to two years of their first registration and full-time students in the accelerated MBA will normally complete the program within one year. The curriculum is tightly integrated, so you can learn to analyze situations from the vantage point of each of the functional areas. Today, more than ever, corporate strategy crosses all boundaries. When you make a financial decision, you need to think about how it impacts marketing and how changes in operations will affect human resources. Our program will provide you with the strong interdisciplinary training you will need to create unimaginable solutions in a time we have yet to see. COURSES IN THE JOHN MOLSON MBA PROGRAM The first part of the MBA Program is made up of courses that are mandatory for all students. The purpose of these courses is to provide an integrated and rigorous body of functionally oriented knowledge and skills as a foundation for the second part of the program when you can choose one of the three options for fulfilling your degree requirements. At this point, you ll be able to really shape your degree to fit your interests and future prospects. Students in the accelerated MBA program are required to complete nine of these core courses. The required courses are chosen in consultation with the MBA Program Director, based on the student s academic background and career prospects. You can choose to undertake a Business Research Paper (which could be a study commissioned by your firm or a business plan to start your own venture), or a hands-on consulting project for a firm of your choice, or take extra elective courses. No matter what path you choose, the John Molson MBA will provide you with a challenging educational experience where you can cultivate your curiosity for new knowledge and engage in those that interest you most. -2-

13 MBA PROGRAM REGULATIONS AND POLICIES ACADEMIC REGULATIONS Students in the John Molson MBA Program are bound by the regulations and requirements in existence at the time of their date of entry into the Program as specified in the Concordia School of Graduate Studies Calendar published of that year. Students are responsible for informing themselves of all regulations and policies applicable to them in the John Molson MBA Program. STUDENT REQUEST PROCEDURES A Student Request is the formal procedure available to students to request exemptions from MBA Program and University policies. Students must submit their requests by sending an to Deborah Wright, Assistant Director, John Molson MBA Program, with the appropriate documentation attached. Exemptions from the regulations or policies of the University or the John Molson MBA Program are not an inherent student right but may be granted exceptionally in consideration of the student s academic record and the merits of the case. The MBA Office takes the view that unless there are excellent reasons to the contrary; a student is expected to be aware of and to satisfy all regulations and policies in effect. Students who are granted an exemption must replace the exempted course with another course in order to fulfill the credit requirements of the program. Students who have been granted an exemption for a course cannot subsequently take that course for credit toward the graduate certificate, diploma or degree. This is a reminder about the EXEMPTIONS policy which appears in the Graduate Studies Calendar: graduatestudies.concordia.ca/publications/ graduatecalendar/current/graduateregistration/ #exemptions TIME LIMIT The time limit to complete the John Molson MBA requirements for full time students is three years; for part time students, it is five years from the year of initial registration. COURSE LOAD FULL TIME STUDENTS The normal course load for a full-time student is a minimum of 12 credits of course work per term. Students can accelerate their progress by taking courses in the summer terms. A full-time student may not, without permission, register for more than 15 credits in each of the fall and winter terms or for more than 12 credits in the summer term. COURSE LOAD PART TIME STUDENTS The normal course load for a part-time student is a minimum of 12 credits per calendar year. A part-time student may not, without permission, register for more than 6 credits in each of the Fall and Winter terms but may accelerate their progress by taking courses in the Summer. COURSE LOAD REDUCTION In exceptional circumstances, students may be granted permission to reduce their course load below the normal specified in the sections describing full-time and part-time status while remaining as a student in good standing. Full-time students completing less than 9 credits per term will be reclassified as part-time and must abide by the course load requirements for part-time students as specified. Part-time students must complete a minimum of 9 credits per year including the summer term. Full and part-time students who have been granted such permission will be subject to specific conditions outlined in the section on Academic Standing. CHANGE OF STATUS On application, a student may be granted permission to change his/her status from part time to full time or vice versa. If a change is permitted, the student s time limit for the completion of the degree requirements will be adjusted accordingly. Part time students may change status and switch to full time if employment opportunities permit an educational leave of absence. Students who would like to take advantage of this possibility can contact Deborah Wright at (514) ext or by at for more information. TIME-LIMIT EXTENSION FEE A time limit extension fee of $ per-term will be charged to students who have been granted a Program time-limit extension. Program time-limit extensions are usually granted for one academic year (i.e. 3 terms). -11-

14 ACADEMIC STANDING The scholastic performance of all MBA students will be reviewed on a regular basis: at the end of each term for full time students and annually for part time students. This assessment will be based on the final grades obtained in all courses for which the students have registered subsequent to their admission into the John Molson MBA Program. The purpose of the review is to monitor the students status and progress, to maintain the standards expected by the John Molson School of Business, and to assist students in achieving success in the Program. To be considered in good standing at such a review, a student must have successfully completed the required course load; and Achieved a grade point average (GPA) of 3.00 or better since the previous review or since admission in the case of the first review; or Achieved a grade of B or better in each course taken during any term in which a course load reduction has been granted. A student who has not fulfilled the requirements for good standing is considered either a failed student or a student on conditional standing. Potential graduates who have not fulfilled the requirements for good standing must apply to the MBA Student Request Committee to determine the requirements which they must meet in order to be reinstated as students in good standing, and thus be considered for graduation. CONDITIONAL AND FAILED STANDING Students who have not met the conditions for good standing will be considered either students on conditional standing or failed students. Conditional standing is used to monitor the progress of a student experiencing difficulty and to assist him/her in successfully completing the Program. A student on conditional standing will normally be required to achieve a GPA of 3.3 or better in the courses taken during this period. A student on conditional standing is not normally permitted to drop any courses. Additional requirements may be imposed in individual cases. A student who does not meet the requirements of his or her conditional standing is considered a failed student and is dismissed from the Program. FAILURE REGULATION A student who fails one or more courses in the Program, or the conditions of his/her conditional standing will be dismissed from the Program. PROGRAM WITHDRAWAL A student who wishes to apply for withdrawal from the John Molson MBA Program must do so in writing, addressed to Deborah Wright, Assistant Director. Please note: Not attending classes, or informing an instructor of intent to withdraw, does not constitute official withdrawal, nor does it entitle a student to a refund of fees or cancellation of registration. Without formally dropping the course by the appropriate academic withdrawal deadline, non-attendance of a class will result in the assignment of a failing grade. If you are registered for a Quebec inter-university agreement you are responsible for being aware of all registration regulations and deadlines at Concordia University and the host university STUDENT IDENTIFICATION CARD The I.D.
