Toronto, New York City, London, Paris, Hong Kong, & Beijing Learning about the world and how to live in it is the essence of education. Why Study Business and English Together? The next phase of the world economy will see the East and West in close partnership to navigate the new world market.

As we cross the globe, you will engage with professionals of diverse backgrounds, from stockbrokers working the floor, business owners marketing their product and venture capitalists promoting a dream. The integration of English and Business into one cohesive program will complement the elements of each course. Studying classic literature from both Eastern and Western cannons will ground the Business course by providing context to the program and developing fundamental technical and critical thinking skills – all of which are key elements in the dynamic culture of international business.
