Two qualities that you absolutely need for an international trade career

Speaking from three decades of experience as a business professional, I believe that the most important requisites for success in a career in any field are personal characteristics and values.

Fanshawe College’s weekend international business program for busy, working professionals

Our weekend college courses will be offered either fully online or blended with in-class sessions offered on some weekends (Friday evenings and Saturdays). Busy working professionals will now be able to obtain the graduate-level skills they’re looking for while networking with like-minded professionals in the field and embarking on an enhanced career.

It only takes 12 consecutive months to achieve a graduate level certificate. And another great thing is that if life gets in the way—for me, it was my wedding—you’re able to continue with your cohort and pick up courses you miss at a later date online. We want to offer flexible delivery that meets the needs of professionals.
