|School:||Saint Mary’s University|
|Faculty:||Sobey School of Business|
|Field of Study:||International Business/Trade/Commerce
|Description:||Even small local businesses must compete with imports and be prepared to look for markets beyond their national boundaries. To survive in this international arena, you need not only astute business sense, but also an understanding of other languages and cultures. The global business management major, unique in its broad interdisciplinary outlook, prepares you for opportunities in international business at home or abroad.
The Sobey School of Business offers cooperative education options to the Bachelor of Commerce program. Cooperative education is a dynamic approach to university education which integrates academic classroom studies with related practical work experiences outside the formal university environment. The principle upon which this concept is based is that learning and individual development are greatly enhanced when the concepts studied in the classroom are periodically applied, tested and observed by the students in meaningful work situations. Through this program, participating businesses have an excellent opportunity to observe and influence the education of bright enthusiastic students. They also benefit from the access gained to university faculty and expertise, while university faculty and students become aware of the concerns of business and the varied problems which they face.
