Saint Mary’s University Entrepreneurship Centre (SMUEC) invites SSB faculty members to participate in the Faculty-In-Residence program. As part of the RBC Talent Hub program, the primary objective of the Faculty-In-Residence is to mobilize the business expertise that exists within the Sobey School to help budding entrepreneurs improve their operations, strategies, and services.
Through co-operative education and internship placements, training, Entrepreneurial Mindset Success Certificate, and an Entrepreneur-in-Residence program, the RBC Talent Hub is an answer to our students’ requests for additional hands-on learning opportunities. The skills developed through this program aim to give students a leg up in the job hunt and help them to excel in the workplace post-graduation.
