_Graduate Certificate in International Business (Program as of Fall 2018)


Program under review. Admissions currently not accepted.

In today's marketplace, borders are no longer a barrier to trade. Indeed, the most successful corporations operate in global markets. Companies must therefore develop an understanding of how cultural differences, business etiquette, and political and social differences affect how business is conducted. These developments have in turn led to increased demand for international business education and for credentials that are recognized and valued around the world. This program is designed to enable students, who hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Commerce (or equivalent), to learn how to conduct business with and in other countries whose local practices may differ markedly from domestic practices. Students will also study global marketing, leading in global workplaces, key factors to consider when entering foreign markets, and communication practices for developing optimal business strategies. Additional topics covered include Canadian import, export and customs regulations, venture growth strategies and business in Asian and other emerging markets.

The schedule is tentative and subject to change.
