“Businesses and investors are learning that we need to understand and measure success in new ways. Above all, we must excel at capturing economic, social and environmental value added or destroyed,” said Professor Zohar. “At Trent, we believe that the leaders of the future need to embrace this mindset as the basis for wealth creation.

“A growing number of students are choosing the Trent University difference. What sets Trent apart is not only our commitment to education for a sustainable future, but also how we engage our students. In order to meet students on their own terms, our B.B.A. program offers options, alternatives and flexibility.”

According to Prof. Zohar, the road to success is through distinct values that are embedded in the Trent University culture and Business Administration program, such as sustainable practices, ethics, socially-responsible business, community engagement and a strong interdisciplinary liberal arts foundation.
