The Vision

JSBA strives to become an association that is recognized for the value it add to students’ university experience, as well as for the professional, career, and growth opportunities it provides to any undergraduate student at JMSB, Concordia, or the Montreal community at large willing to seize them.

At Concordia, JSBA sees itself becoming the main point of reference for matters regarding BTM, SCOM and DI, and seeks to enhance students’ overall academic experience during their university journey while inspiring them to pursue studies in the elds the association represents.

For its part outside the university, JSBA intends to become an integral part of the professional communi- ties associated with the programs it represents, to act like the spoke of a wheel, connecting and integrat- ing its members into those communities.

Moreover, JSBA’s vision is that of a business community that understands the value that the graduating professionals from the fields of BTM, SCOM and DI bring to today’s organizations. Being the newest fields in business, there is a lack of such understanding. JSBA aims to x this by providing exposure of these new branches of business professionals to the business community.
