Community engagement

The University of New Brunswick’s Faculty of Business is known for its commitment to community engagement and exceptionally strong connections with local industry and non-profit organizations.

Student and faculty contributions

This connection fosters an environment where students have opportunities to work on real-world projects that help to develop their skills — and make an impact in the community.

Faculty members focus on research that directly supports the needs of our local industry and the province’s economic development efforts. They take on applied research consulting projects for government and industry and serve on the boards of local companies and non-profit organizations.
