About This Program

The need for expertise in international business is growing in Canada. The International Business Advanced Diploma program prepares you to meet the challenges of adapting to the global marketplace.

Because International Business involves teamwork, you should have the ability to be flexible and enjoy the group process. As program is academically demanding, time management are essential. Projects and assignments will require time outside of class hours.

This program requires you have an above average ability to learn, reason, and make decisions based on integrated knowledge. You will need highly developed communication skills coupled with a keen interest in current international events and sensitivity to cross-cultural relations.

When you enroll in this program you will be involved with a student team that will be working with a local enterprise to prepare a marketing plan for entry into a new foreign market. Your plan will be evaluated by a panel of judges.

In Term 3 , you will be required to seek and complete a minimum six-week work experience component (assistance provided by RRC).  

Course Delivery

This is a one-year program that is being offered at the Exchange District Campus, with limited intakes at Notre Dame Campus.  Small classes are taught by a team of professionals who have real business experience.  They offer innovative projects designed to apply international business theory through case study and discussion. You will be given opportunities to listen to guest speakers and to participate in relevant conferences, seminars, and other events.

Please note that students are responsible for their own transportation in order to complete co-op requirements. Red River College cannot guarantee locations that are readily accessible by public transportation. Students are responsible for all costs connected with such transportation.

Work Experience


Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a process which document and compares an individual's prior learning gained from prior education, work and life experiences and personal study to the learning outcomes in College courses or programs. So if you think your grades are good enough, apply for Recognition of Prior Learning for some of the courses of this program to decrease the number of subjects you have to take.  Talk to your assigned IVC Visa Counselor or Documentation Officer for advice.
