    Learning Outcomes

    Program Learning Outcomes, often referred to as ‘Program Standards', set out the essential learning that a student must achieve before being deemed ready to graduate.

    In many cases these program learning outcomes were developed by the Ministry of Colleges and Universities (MCU) in consultation with employers and educators who are experts in the program field. To ensure the outcomes remain current and in line with industry needs, we invite our employers, graduates working in the field and current students to re-examine and update them during regular, ongoing program review focus groups.

    Pre-Departure Assignment

    To help you prepare for this graduate level program, we would like you to do the following:

    1. Interview traders in your region to get a feel for their international trade issues and concerns. Find out what forms/documents are required to import goods into your home country to help you get an understanding of the rules and requirements before you leave.
    2. Fine tune your communication skills. An IELTS of 6.0 is not strong enough to effectively communicate in international markets. You need to register immediately for formal English training to improve your ability to effectively communicate. By the end of your program you need a plan to communicate at an IELTS equivalent of 7.5 overall to maximize your point score on the Express Entry Profile.
    3. Write a “Statement Of Purpose” that summarizes the RESULTS you would like to gain from study abroad experience and submit it with your application.
