The Centre for International Business Studies was established in 1994 by the Faculty of Business Administration to help provincial businesses enter the international marketplace. The Centre also facilitates international exchanges for students and faculty and provides them with the opportunity to research issues in international business and trade.

The Centre works with local businesses to enhance their effectiveness within the international business community by matching skills and programs within the Faculty of Business Administration with a company's needs.

The Centre develops international student and faculty exchanges which allow participants to gain experience in foreign business practices and develop international contacts. The faculty's list of international exchange sites currently includes universities in Belgium, China, the Czech Republic, Denmark, England, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Scotland, and Sweden.

The Centre also facilitates internships for recent graduates. International in scope, the internships allow recent graduates to gain experience with provincial companies that wish to expand their business on an international level.
