Students from across Canada – and the world – choose the Gerald Schwartz School of Business. 

A program with a diverse student body is a more valuable program, due to varying cultural viewpoints, exposure to broader perspectives on global issues, and a more dynamic campus environment. It’s exactly what the Schwartz School delivers. 

From across Canada 

StFX attracts the largest percentage of students from outside of our home province of any university in Canada. And about 70% of Schwartz School of Business students come from outside of Nova Scotia. Students clearly believe there is something different about StFX and what we have to offer. 

From around the world 

About 7% of StFX’s undergraduate population is from outside of the country. For the Schwartz School of Business that’s closer to 11-12%. We’ve made strategic efforts to increase our international student population over the next few years with a goal of 12% university-wide, which means closer to 15-18% in the business school.
