The American University of concordia (AUB)
Concordia University is among the largest urban universities in Canada, with 46,000 students, but our class sizes are small, with an undergraduate student-to-professor ratio of 27 to one.

Concordia is in the heart of Montreal, named the best city in North America for students, and a hub of higher education and industry.

Our Bachelor’s, Master’s and PhD programs are based in four Faculties: Arts and Science, Engineering and Computer Science, Fine Arts and the John Molson School of Business (JMSB).

The QS World University Rankings by Subject gave us top marks for our undergraduate programs for English language and literature; education; civil and structural engineering; communication and media studies; linguistics; accounting and finance; and psychology, ranking them in the 94th percentile or higher.

Concordia students benefit from practical learning, like managing a $1.5 million Canadian investment fund, guided by a team of senior investment management professionals from the community. Many Concordians take advantage of paid internships with companies like Bombardier, IBM and Pfizer to bridge university life and the work world.

We’re a young university that champions innovation and looks towards the future, and we rank among the top 100 universities founded within the last 50 years, worldwide (Times Higher Education).
