Growing Nova Scotia's economy requires a strong export industry. The One Nova Scotia Report suggests that in the next decade, the province must increase both the total value of its exports and the total number of Nova Scotia firms participating in export-related activities by 50%. This means the province needs highly skilled international business professionals to step into leadership and operational roles.
In this program, you receive:
In the first two semesters, you learn key concepts and workplace-related skills needed to build a successful business career. In the second year, you focus on specific international business topics and complete a highly sought after domestic or international internship (normally paid by the employer) to give you hands-on work experience that will help you successfully transition to the workplace. Most students receive jobs quickly after graduation and those who decide to pursue further studies do so with more confidence in their strengths and career interests.
You will complete the remaining courses (total of 6) required to obtain a FITT diploma which will allow you the opportunity to work towards a Certified International Trade Professional (CITP) designation after graduation (additional fees apply for this certification). You will also earn a selling skills certificate from the Canadian Professional Sales Association (a program bonus that will give you a wider range of career options) and a licensed course module that is recognized and approved by the Supply Chain Management Association of Canada as part of the Supply Chain Management Professional (SCMP) professional program (designation) – the most sought after and respected SCM credential in Canada.
