*Please note that progression to the MSc International Business in the UK at the University of Hertfordshire is subject to the student successfully completing the fall term at Capilano University and to meeting the minimal entry requirements as governed by the recognition agreement between the two universities.
The program is of great calibre, and I don’t say this lightly. The fact that we are surrounded by professionals, both professors and fellow colleagues, adds to the learning environment – just as a Master’s program should be in my opinion. It is a program that challenges the boundaries of your existing knowledge, encourages you to think outside the box, and allows you to experience a new learning experience and culture through the UK Exchange. By moving to the UK, it has been an opportunity for me, personally, to grow as an individual and professional, learn about the cultural diversities that are so prevalent in today’s business world, and create bonds and friendships with people from allover the world.
