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 Agreés du Québec (OCPAQ), accounting professionals, faculty members and their peers.
Who are we?
The 2016 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. The team was formed by our two co-Presidents, 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.
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.
