Concordia University Attracts More Canadian and International Student Enrollments

The 21st century has been very good to Concordia University so far. Their enrollment numbers are way up across the board, from both Canadian and international students.

Since 2000, Concordia has gone through, what they describe as, “a millennial renaissance.” Over the past decade the school’s enrollment has skyrocketed, while they have invested more into their campuses and programs, as well as research funding.

Closest to home, the university attracted 99 per cent more Ontario-based students, in both undergraduate and graduate classes. They also doubled their out-of-province enrollment.

Over the same time period, Concordia has seen their international student enrollment grow by 150 per cent. In 2000, they had 1,785 international students, and now their campus is home to some 4,709 international students.

Overall, Concordia’s current total body is 45,126 students.

In recent years, Concordia has invested $500 million in new building projects that are central to the architectural renaissance of downtown Montreal, now known as Quartier Concordia. The revitalization began with the 2005 construction of the $171.8-million Engineering, Computer Science and Visual Arts Integrated Complex. Across the street, a $118.5 million building was constructed to house Concordia’s John Molson School of Business.
