Ever wondered which Canadian universities best prepare its students for business leadership positions? According to a study conducted by the European École des Mines de Paris, anaylysing the development training programs of 338 universities accross the world, Concordia University ranked as the highest rated Canadian university on its world-wide ranking table.
It must be noted that Concordia University has produced the highest number of CEO's in a Fortune 500 company: André Desmarais of Power Corporation, Domenic D'Alessandro of Manulife Financial and Gerald T. McCaughey of the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce. Being a former graduate of Concordia University, this is something to be proud about! The world's top five universities with graduates occupying a Fortune 500 position are: (1) Harvard University, (2) Tokyo University, (3) Stanford University, (4) Ecole Polytechnique of France and (5) HEC of France.
As I like to compare Concordia to McGill, according to the above report, Concordia is ranked 33rd followed on this world-wide ranking out of 338 universities and McGill is ranked.....roll the drums..... 318th!!! This reconfirms my firm belief that Concordia's business faculty is a exemplary school of business and undoubtedly among the elite in Canada.
