The Graduate Certificate in International Business (IB) builds on previous post-secondary education to give students the skills they need to enter an exciting career working with people and organizations globally.

Offered by the Donald School of Business at Red Deer College, this post baccalaureate credential is the first of its kind in the Alberta post-secondary community and has, at its core, a blended model of delivery that will support the students in their studies, offer them the latest in access to IB experts (face to face and online), while giving them the technology environment that will promote their ability to function in a global economy.

Santiago Iñiguez, the Dean of Madrid’s IE Business School, in November 2013, supported the use of blended learning in business education, noting “It’s high-quality online learning combined with face-to-face sessions...Blended education is the future” (Jacobs, 2013).

Intended for instructional designers and post-secondary administrators, the learning outcomes for this session include understanding the global environment opportunities for learning, the reasons why the design team chose a blended model of technology enhanced executive weekends combined with wholly online delivery, and how this model supports the future design and development of business schools in Canada.
