CMC‑Canada is proud to partner with
Saint Mary's University

The Sobey School of Business makes an impact with purpose by engaging our students with active learning and connecting with the business community. Fifty percent of our student body comes from outside Canada, ensuring students benefit from a global perspective.
Responsible management, encompassing sustainability and a commitment to ethical practice, is important to us, which is why the Sobey School has signed the UN's Principles of Responsible Management Education (PRME). We are accredited by the AACSB, a distinction held by only 5% of the world's business schools. Through our Bachelor of Commerce and MBA programs, we offer top quality management education.
MBA students interested in consulting can take advantage of our longstanding partnership with CMC Canada. We offer elective courses in management consulting and project management, that academically qualify students to pursue the CMC designation. Students also have the opportunity to work hands-on with local businesses in a Masters Consulting Project course, helping clients address challenges and opportunities in real-time.
