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 honour 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 2020-2021 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 its 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 OUR PRESIDENTS
On behalf of the John Molson Accounting Society, the 2020-2021 executive team would like to thank you for support us. During these unsettling times, we have had to overcome a lot of barriers and innovate for our students, sponsors, and our accounting community. We have a lot of exciting new events and are continuing to do other events to bring all of you the true value you deserve as an accounting student.
This year, we will go over a variety of topics from academics, social, and professional – our 3 pillars of JMAS. As Presidents and leaders within the accounting student body, we strive to help our students as much as we can to guide them towards a path that is more structured - ultimately providing resources, information, and opportunities that will allow students for further success. With our experience, we have gone through almost everything in accounting and it is our duty to share that knowledge with not only our team but our students, because we are all an accounting society
