Bernard Landry teaching in JMSB Masterís program

Former premier Bernard Landry is an adjunct professor this term in the John Molson School of Business. He is teaching a course called International Economy to students in the Master’s of Business Administration program, the English-language version of a course he teaches at the Université du Québec à Montréal.

Associate Dean (Master’s and Graduate Diploma Programs) Michel Magnan said, “I am enthusiastic about the idea that Mr. Landry is willing to share his extensive and long experience with our MBA students so that they can better appreciate the risks, challenges and opportunities of doing business in a globalized economy.”

Landry is a practicing lawyer with a degree in economics and finance from the Institut d’études politiques de Paris. First elected to the National Assembly in 1976, he was leader of the Parti Québécois from 2001 to 2005, and premier from 2001 to 2003.

It was during that period that the Quebec government provided $97 million in capital funding to Concordia, of which $50 million went towards the building of the Engineering, Computer Science and Visual Arts Integrated Complex at Guy and Ste. Catherine Sts.
