The GIE will focus on sustainability. As a leader in global sustainability, Canada is a key voice in the global discussion on going green. Students will be able to explore current challenges related to sustainability in Canada to gain better insight into the topic and long-term initiatives in the region. Students will partake in company visits related to themes of green energy and sustainable initiatives. Students will also have the opportunity to visit Old Montreal and the Montreal Observation Wheel and participate in art and food tours of Montreal.

Students will also engage in a hands-on service-learning activity during their time in Montreal, actively working to better the community they are visiting while learning about the challenges unique to the area through a management discussion.

Jeff Mittelstadt, Professor of the Practice of Strategy and Entrepreneurship and Executive Director of the Ackerman Center for Excellence in Sustainability, will lead this program.
