Why Sprott?

The Sprott School of Business is an AACSB accredited business school.

AACSB Accreditation represents the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide. Less than 5% of the world’s 13,000 business programs have earned AACSB Accreditation. – AACSB Website


I wanted a business degree with an edge.
The Bachelor of International Business program is highly recognized and unique in offering students the opportunity to learn a new language and conduct a mandatory yearlong exchange to study business in that language. As such, I learned Spanish and spent a year at the Faculty of Economics and Business at the University of Chile.

Upon graduation, I was featured in an advertisement run by the Sprott School of Business in the Ottawa Citizen and the Globe and Mail nationwide.
