October 28, 2016

The Sobey School of Business at Saint Mary’s University has become the first school in North America to take part in BSIS, an international process designed to assess an institution's economic, intellectual, cultural, and social impact on a region. The report found that the business school contributed $329M to the Nova Scotia economy while helping 250 international students obtain their first job in this region. Students in the school’s Enactus community launched 34 businesses while creating 156 jobs. “We know that through collective impact we can accelerate change and create a better world for those who come after us,” says Sobey School of Business Dean Patricia Bradshaw. “These results demonstrate that we make a significant contribution to the economy of Nova Scotia and to the social and intellectual fabric of the region.” SMU
