I couldn’t figure out which concentration I wanted to go into. Luckily for me, the Haskayne School of Business offered many courses in all concentrations that would help me figure that out. When I took a few international business classes, I found them very interesting and knew this concentration was meant for me. One of the classes I found interesting was international trade management. Producing an international business plan for a real company that could be implemented in the real world was an amazing experience. The information we were exposed to and how it all came together was extremely useful.
