Since its launch in January 2020, the Sobey EMBA at Saint Mary’s in Halifax has specialized in the growing field of evidence-based management, which uses six A’s (ask, acquire, appraise, aggregate, apply and assess) to define and solve problems. Sobey is also the first school in Canada to receive Silver Certification from the International Center for Evidence-Based Management. Students attend two days of classes every three weeks and otherwise use self-based learning modules online. In the past, groups of Sobey students have travelled together to Vietnam, Belgium and Poland to tour production facilities and meet with trade officials and diplomats.
