With economic recovery gaining momentum in the U.S., continuing growth in Asian markets, and free trade with Europe on the horizon, the prospects for Nova Scotia's export industries are very promising.
The One Nova Scotia Report suggests we must increase both the total value of our exports and the total number of Nova Scotia firms participating in export-related activities by 50 per cent over the next ten years. That means that in the next decade we need 400 new businesses exporting and an increase in export revenue of over $6 billion CDN.
To meet these ambitious goals, Nova Scotia needs highly skilled international business professionals to step into leadership and operational roles. This makes the NSCC Advanced Diploma in International Business an attractive option for anyone wishing to start, re-start, or enhance their business career.
In this program, you will gain valuable international, ecommerce/digital business skills, and gain new knowledge – with an international perspective. Students learn from highly experienced instructors, benefiting from their knowledge, industry insights, and connections. Courses are highly practical in nature, with industry guest speakers, company visits, applied project work, internet business training, and networking opportunities in industries of interest.
The final term of the program consists of a four-month internship, usually paid, allowing those students wishing to transition into a career to do so more directly, and with the experience so many employers require. Other graduates, who wish to pursue further studies, do so with more confidence in their strengths and career fit, allowing them to maximize the value of their educational investment.
