"The Concordia MBA program proved to be the accelerator I needed to reach the next level of my career. Within 12 months of earning my degree, I went from an Individual Contributor at my current job to a Director level role at another firm as the head of the department. Concordia’s MBA program taught the knowledge to contribute at an executive level and gave me the confidence to pursue additional opportunities. 

The cohort design built long-term friendships and networking amongst my peers and we stay in touch on a regular basis. Also, the 1-day per week schedule at night allowed me the flexibility to continue working full-time and being there for my family without sacrificing quality time."
