In addition to basic research we employ our scholarship it to build bridges with other universities, the business community and the public through collaboration, policy development, action research, consulting, and civic involvement.

Citizens of the World: Our internationalization mandate influences all of our operational and strategic decisions. Our students are mobile citizens of the world and we are preparing them to operate in the global business environment in the spirit of good citizenship.

Prepared to Lead: Our community of learners demonstrate initiative, take responsibility, create shared value and make a difference in the world.

Entrepreneurial: The Sobey School will foster an entrepreneurial mindset and personal traits such as courage, resiliency, risk-taking and determination. Graduates are entrepreneurial in their thinking and actions. The definition of entrepreneurial includes social entrepreneurship.

Businesses: This is a very broad definition that is inclusive of all organizational forms from business, non-profit and government to co-operatives and credit unions. It also reflects our commitment to professional organizations and the professions, such as accounting.
