For those looking for a career in global business enterprises, this program is well suited for you. The first year of the program will provide you with a broad knowledge base in the four major areas of global business - Accounting and Finance, Marketing and Sales, Supply Chain and Operations, and Human Resources. Furthering your knowledge and skills, you will build your management and leadership capacity in the second year. Through a variety of case studies and interactive learning opportunities, you will develop skills needed to make strategic international business decisions. As a graduate, you will acquire specialized knowledge and skills in international business allowing you to carry out international business functions in today's global marketplace. After completion of Levels 1 and 2, you will have the skills and education you need to apply for the FITT Diploma from the Forum of International Trade Training, and the CIM designation from the Canadian Institute of Management. You will be well positioned to be successful in entry-level and junior management positions in all areas of international business.
