What will the Sobey Executive MBA International Trade Mission do for you?

Expand your networks.

Students connect with Atlantic Canadian businesses to prepare for the Trade Mission. During the Mission, you’ll meet with high-level contacts in intercultural settings to secure partnerships for the business you represent. In addition to business meetings, you’ll gain unique access to prestigious experts and global business leaders from a diverse group of international companies around the world.

Build your confidence and competence.

Experience the world.

The Mission immerses you in the international business arena and offers a unique opportunity to develop cross-cultural competency and sensitivity along with firsthand knowledge of how business is conducted abroad.

 

“The Mission takes the student outside their comfort zone, pushes them to their limits, and teaches them to stay calm and perform under intense pressure.”

- Dr. Mark Raymond, EMBA Faculty
