MRU, OSCC create Indigenous Business and Economic Development Program

April 20, 2022
Mount Royal University and Old Sun Community College have announced a new Indigenous Business and Economic Development (IBED) concentration within MRU’s Bissett School of Business. The program was inspired by a vision from Dr Andrew Bear Robe, and will help to advance Indigenous business leaders and drive economic growth in Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities. “The IBED program is a shared educational space rooted in mutual understanding and allyship and reflects our Indigenous worldview and community-based economic and business acumen,” says Maria Big Snake, VP of Business Affairs and Government Relations at OSCC. “This program strengthens the knowledge base of our Indigenous leaders and business administrators and provides transformative business tools to carve the path forward to community economic prosperity.” MRU (AB)
