Global Marketing Management with Co-op – HBSO CORe

The Global Marketing Management with Co-op – HBSO CORe diploma program is a combination of Sprott Shaws’ relationship with two partners i.e., the Forum for International Trade Training (FITT), and Harvard Business School’s HBSO Credential of Readiness (CORe). This diploma program focuses on the development of business understanding, both domestically and internationally; emphasizing the skills necessary to align processes and resources and to improve communication, productivity and effectiveness.

The students of this program benefit from the partnership with the Forum for International Trade Training (FITT).  FITT focuses on the practical aspects of international business, including logistics, nation-by-nation marketing opportunities, trade finance, market entry strategies and international management techniques. All FITT skills courses meet the standards of international business and trade training as prescribed by the International Association of Trade Training Organizations (IATTO). Successful completion of all eight FITT skills courses provides the student with a FITT Diploma, accredited by IATTO and satisfies the educational requirement for the CITP (Certified International Trade Professional) designation*.

The second partnership is with the Harvard Business School HBSO Credential of Readiness (CORe) which provides business fundamentals for early-career high potentials and aspiring leaders to improve on the job performance. The CORe curriculum includes Business Analytics, Economics for Managers and Financial Accounting. Students will complete the three-course HBSO CORe program during the co-op module of their studies.

This program includes a Co-op placement. This placement enables the student to gain first hand paid experience in the chosen career field while enabling Instructional staff to observe the student in a practice situation. Please note successful completion of the Co-op is required for graduation
