Attending the Sobey School of Business means being 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. In 2023, we are launching a new Executive Doctorate in Business Administration and Master of Business Analytics.  Together with these programs that address the emerging need 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 EQUIS and AACSB accredited, an achievement held by just one percent of the world’s business schools.
