Certificate in American Canadian Business

Strategies for bringing your business across the 49th Parallel

Although Canada and the USA share many values and ways of life, there are important differences that lie unseen beneath the surface. These include cultural attitudes, government policies, economies of scale, taxes and ways business gets done, to name a few. To ensure the health and longevity of their enterprise, business owners wishing to expand across the border need to be aware of these differences and know how to handle them in a nation-appropriate context.

Delivered in partnership with Washington State University (WSU) Carson College of Business, this new certificate program is designed to help entrepreneurs and small-to-medium size business owners expand their market to the other side of the border. Understand the connections that facilitate opportunity, as well as the differences that could sink the ship. Grow your intercontinental networks. Apply strategies for success across the 49th parallel, and do business like a local.
