Dean's Message

Message from Dean Harjeet Bhabra


I am delighted to welcome our new and returning students to your Winter term at the Sobey School of Business.

The start of term is such an exciting time of year; whether you are coming to us from high school ready to embark on your first post-secondary experience or are coming from the work world to pursue a master’s or PhD, I know that you are excited to start this new chapter.  I want to assure you that we are here to support you and help you succeed.

The Sobey School of Business has a proud history of excellence in business education. The outstanding work of our faculty, staff and students is what makes us the business school of choice. Throughout your time with us, I know you will join us in our mission to make an impact with purpose.

This year, we will continue to advance the goals of our Strategic Plan, Elevating Impact, which include research intensification, enhancement of experiential learning opportunities for our students, engagement with the community of practice, integration of sustainability and corporate social responsibility in our curriculum and instilling an entrepreneurial mindset in our graduates.   

Attending the Sobey School of Business means that you are now part of a creative, passionate, and innovative community. The mindset of the school is evident in the design of new programs and redesign of existing programs throughout this past year. This year we are launching a new Executive Doctorate in Business Administration and a new Master of Business Analytics.  Together with these programs that address the emerging needs to provide education that fits the current business landscape, the Sobey School supported research initiatives targeting Nova Scotia and Atlantic Canada, and hosted events to support and uplift diverse communities. The Sobey School of Business continues to play a leadership role in our region and communities, and we cannot wait for you to make your mark.

Thank you for choosing to study at the Sobey School of Business. The school is AACSB accredited, an achievement held by just five percent of the world’s business schools. We are also a PRME Champion school, which recognizes our efforts to incorporate the principles of sustainability and responsible management education into our programs and operations. 

Once again, I am honoured to welcome you to an exciting Winter term at the Sobey School of Business. I wish you a safe, productive, and enriching year without limits.
