A leader in experiential and innovative learning, we’re focussed on being responsive to the world around us and building strong relationships which facilitate social and economic good. We are an inclusive community driven by curiosity, integrity, and discovery. We welcome and celebrate diverse perspectives. Our research is relevant not just in our core areas, but also stretches across the University to fields like health, psychology, engineering, law, computer science, oceans, and agriculture.
With more than 2500 students (over one-quarter graduate students) and 80 faculty members, we offer undergraduate programs (Bachelor of Commerce & Bachelor of Management) and graduate programs (direct-entry and mid-career versions of the Master of Information, Master of Business Administration, and Master of Public Administration; and the Master of Science in Business). All of our degree programs are externally accredited. We actively participate in Dalhousie’s Interdisciplinary PhD program and the multi-Faculty Master of Digital Innovation.
