Cape Breton University is proud to offer world-renowned programs through the Shannon School of Business (SSOB). The SSOB is a unique and specialized opportunity for undergraduates and postgraduates to earn the business degree they need to succeed.
The SSOB maintains close ties with the local business community, providing the chance to learn first-hand from our best and brightest business leaders and entrepreneurs. Our faculty is made up of skilled practitioners and accomplished academics, who have practised on Cape Breton Island and around the world. SSOB’s namesake commemorates business veteran, Joseph Shannon, who built an international business from Cape Breton Island.
There’s a strong link between SSOB students and the business community because of the many opportunities to learn from one another through real-life business experiences, including Co-op Placements and community-based projects. Limited enrolment and small class size allows our faculty to get to know each student, providing the individual attention and unique learning opportunities critical for success in the competitive business environment.
