Gillian Ward is a third-year Bachelor of Management student, majoring in Globalization, with interests in marketing and international business. She attended the Halifax Corporate Tour in 2016, and participated in the marketing stream, visiting Cosette, Emera, Corporate Research Associates, and Affinio.
Offering Marketing, Accounting/Finance, and Career Discovery streams, the Halifax Corporate Tour provides students the opportunity to learn about different industries and companies in the city.
