John Molson Accounting Society 

What is JMAS?

The John Molson Accounting Society (JMAS) is a student run association operating as a subsidiary of the Commerce and Administration Students’ Association (CASA) of the John Molson School of Business (JMSB). As one of the oldest associations in JMSB, we have the honor to represent the largest major specific student base; the accounting student body. We strive to enhance the university experience of accounting students by providing opportunities to bridge the gap between the L’Ordre des Comptables Professionnels Agrées du Québec (OCPAQ), accounting professionals, faculty members and their peers.

What do we do?

Our main priority is to bring as many opportunities as possible to our student body. We do so by organizing academic, social and professional events. Our annual recruitment cocktail is the highlight of the year, with over 500 students and company representatives networking together. As a result, our students have been recognized as the talented professionals they are. Furthermore, we represent Concordia University at many external accounting conferences. We also represent the accountancy student body on the Board of Directors of the CASA. Throughout our mandate, we will strive to organize the best academic and social events possible to enhance the university experience of all students at JMSB.

Who are we?

The 2019-2020 team is composed of 15 regular, and yet special, undergraduate JMSB students. Even while taking a full course load, doing internships through co-op, working part time, participating in case competitions, and managing somewhat of a social life, we work arduously to bring added value to our peers. Our two co-Presidents formed the team with the goal in mind to shine a bright light on our school and it’s students. As an organization, we strive for three things; competence, excellence and character. Our team is composed of students who are on the precipice of graduation, others who are about to begin their second year, and some in between. However, we all have one thing in mind, and it is to make the most out of our mandates.

Message from Presidents

First and foremost, we would like to thank you for your interest in our organization. The John Molson Accounting Society’s mission is to enrich accounting student’s university experience here at the John Molson School of Business. We attempt to complement our University’s curriculum by providing a combination of networking opportunities, social activities and academic support. Our main values are notably community, through which we provide events tailored to the needs of our target groups. Excellence, while maintaining high standards in the execution of our activities. Lastly character, we strive to conduct ourselves professionally as leaders of our community. All of our actions are guided by the desire to provide our peers with tools that will permit them to excel in the academic and professional careers beyond their years at JMSB. We are proud to have been awarded titles such as “Best Association of the Year” from the Commerce and Administration Student’s Association (CASA) and the “Association of the Year” from the CPA Order of Quebec. We intend to honor these awards and continue tending to the development of the accounting student population at JMSB. We would not be where we are without the generosity of our sponsors, the support of our professors, the assistance of the JMSB community and of course our amazing students who attend our events. We strongly believe this network around us has allowed us to move to new heights and continuously provide more value to the accounting student body. To another amazing year.

Signed,
