Personalized Assistance


EMBA students have unique demands on their time, so we have developed a sophisticated support system and offer a high level of service at each stage of the program. With a Sobey EMBA, we’re with you every step of the way.

Applicant Support

From the first time you contact us, you’ll notice something different at Sobey - our strong commitment to personal attention and interest in you as an individual. Program Manager Kelly Smith works exclusively with EMBA candidates and students and serves as your main point of contact. She is pleased to answer all of your questions, provide preliminary feedback and assist you through every step of the application process. Kelly will work with you to ensure your application is not only complete, but also presents you and your qualifications in the best possible light.

Participant Support

Our team works very hard to ensure that your EMBA experience is nothing short of exceptional. Staff members work behind the scenes to take care of all administrative details on the program, such as sourcing textbooks and class materials, so your time can be devoted to learning.

Here are some examples:

  • Case studies, textbooks and professors’ notes are always available before class.
  • You will have full access to the Saint Mary's University Library, and any books you request will be sent directly to you.
  • The Program Manager is your frontline resource person and is able to handle issues that may arise during the program.
  • Program faculty members are available outside of class by telephone and email. You will find them very responsive and committed to your academic success.
  • Students meet in comfortable, attractive classrooms in the World Trade and Convention Centre (WTCC) in the heart of downtown Halifax.
  • All meals are served in the graciously appointed dining room at the WTCC, overlooking Halifax's downtown and scenic harbour.

Only Sobey offers this unparalleled level of service, so you can focus on your studies with less stress.

Our commitment to service continues long after graduation. You will be able to stay in close contact with the Sobey School of Business, your fellow graduates, and faculty through:

  • Sobey EMBA Alumni Association
  • Professional Development
  • Alumni Events
  • Sobey EMBA Alumni Directory

Professional development workshops and guest speakers

Throughout the year and as part of your EMBA experience, you will have the opportunity to attend professional development workshops and special lectures that feature local business leaders and innovators.
