Miami, FL (PRWEB) July 17, 2013
Manchester Business School has partnered with the British Canadian Chamber of Trade and Commerce to grow positive business relationships between MBS’ Global MBA program, students and business leaders on both sides of the Atlantic.
MBS Miami Director Melissa Holland made the trip to Toronto on July 8 to help welcome the new British High Commissioner to Canada Mr. Howard Ronald Drake OBE and to enjoy a BCCTC barbeque held at the Novotel Hotel in downtown Toronto.
Toronto is an excellent market for Global MBA students, as CBCNews reports that almost half of Toronto residents are foreign born.
“The latest census statistics show that immigrants make up 45.7 per cent of the Toronto area population. Five years earlier, immigrants represented 43.7 per cent of the population. In terms of recent immigration, the number of immigrants who lived in the region increased to 2,320,160 from 2,032,960 between 2001 and 2006.”
Founded in 1951, the British Canadian Chamber of Trade & Commerce aims to provide a business-networking forum for companies and individuals engaged in business between Canada, the UK, and Europe. This consists of Breakfast Seminars, Networking evenings, Golf Tournament, Christmas Luncheon, and, soon to be, a conference on "Doing Business with Britain."
The BCCTC, through a Memorandum of Understanding, maintains close ties with the Canada-United Kingdom Chamber of Commerce and other Chambers based in Britain. This agreement encourages meetings of key leaders in both the UK and Canada. In addition the BCCTC is a member of the British American Business Council (BABC - babc.org) that is made up of an association of 33 British American Chambers across the USA and Mexico; and has a seat on the Board of the European Union Chamber Commerce of Canada, which is made up of the 25 countries with active associations here.
