Business Studies Student Award

With one out of every three jobs in Canada linked directly to goods and service exports, few would dispute that trade is a vital component of Canada’s economic health. By the same token, we believe the development of today’s youth – tomorrow’s international business leaders – is equally important.

Leaders of the Future

In a continued effort to foster an export culture in Canada, and create a workforce that is globally minded, the Alberta Export Award Committee is pleased to offer the Alberta Export Award for International Business Studies.

This award recognizes students who have demonstrated leadership, excelled in their international business studies (be it international business, finance, relations or economics) and have made a significant contribution to the export community in Alberta.
