BretMitchell“The Sobey EMBA is an important part of our executive development strategy. We have sponsored a number of our senior managers and have seen immediate results. The Major Research Project (MRP) provides additional ROI. Through the MRP, we have launched new business initiatives at NSLC including expanding distribution channels with agency stores, augmenting brand awareness through a new Air Miles rewards program, and positioning ourselves for further growth with a business plan in progress for online ordering.”
