The Power
of Teams

Smith School of Business has been a pioneer in the important area of team-based learning, utilizing an approach that is far more sophisticated and integrated than that used at other business schools. Our students graduate better-prepared to lead and be productive members of today's collaborative workforce.

Experiential
Learning

We recognize that there is often no substitute to the learning imparted by hands-on experience. Our students put theories and best practices to the test through internships, new venture opportunities, and student-run businesses, including Canada's first hedge fund run by MBA and graduate students.

Committed to
Student Success

Our dedication to student success extends well beyond the innovative classroom experience. Our comprehensive career support programs, coaching services, alumni networking events and life-long learning opportunities are all designed to help our students realize their goals and ambitions.

Learning Environment

Goodes Hall, the home of Smith School of Business, combines an exquisitely restored 45,000 square foot 120-year-old Victorian schoolhouse with 143,000 square feet of bold new design and structure. The building is named in honour of the family of Mel Goodes, a Commerce '57 alumnus and former Chairman & CEO of Warner-Lambert worldwide.
