Seminars Explore Current Business Topics In-Depth
To complement its MBA curriculum, The Concordia School of management offers a series of 1-credit topical seminars designed to help students hold in-depth discussions about business areas of interest. Another purpose of proposed seminars is to help MBA students comprehend concepts closely associated to their final capstone projects. For example, students choosing to develop an organizational assessment should benefit from the discovery of concepts presented in the Open Innovation and Quality Management seminars. Similarly, entrepreneurial students interested in the development of a business plan should benefit from the Raising Capital and Methods of Financing, Scenario and Contingency Planning and Zero-Based Budgeting seminars.
MBA seminars are offered through two teaching modalities. While some seminars are only offered through an online format, others are hybrid seminars conciliating the best of online and on-ground teaching practices. MBA students may replace some of their 3-credit elective courses with a series of three 1-credit seminars.
The seminars associated with the 2015/2016 academic year comprise the following topics:
- Corporate Restructuring & Revitalization
- Open Innovation
- Quality Management
- Raising Capital and Methods of Financing
- Scenario and Contingency Planning
- Zero-Based Budgeting
All seminars are taught by professors with professional experience and proven knowledge in their field. Participation in these seminars is a function of enrollment availability. Students should contact their Academic Advisor for more information.
