Strictly undergraduate. It matters.
Excellence stems from focus, not spreading yourself thin. At the Schwartz School, all our effort, resources, and planning is focused on creating an undergraduate learning environment that’s second to none in Canada. It’s why more than 90% of our courses are taught by full-time profs—people who are available to students and attentive to their needs.
Our Intro to Business classes average around 50 students; second year BSAD classes average fewer than 45 students per class; third and fourth year class sizes average around 30 students. Smaller class sizes is one reason we’re able to design experiential components into our course structures. It’s something that simply wouldn’t be possible if we had classes of 250—like many other business schools.
Learn by doing
At the Gerald Schwartz school, you’ll benefit from real-world experiences that bring your learning to life. A large number of our case-based classes are modelled after the Harvard approach to business education. We supplement cases with other experiential learning opportunities like simulations, service learning projects, research projects, co-op, and global exchange.
Diverse class profile
About 70% of Schwartz School of Business students come from outside of Nova Scotia, and about 11-12% of our students hail from outside of the country. This ensures a more vibrantly diverse student body. And just as importantly, it speaks volumes about the value of our program that so many—from so far—choose the Schwartz School.
