The Edwards School of
Business at the University of Saskatchewan and the Saskatchewan Indian
Institute of Technologies have signed their first agreement that will lead to
more Aboriginal students holding university business degrees. Through the
partnership agreement, graduates of SIIT’s two-year business diploma program
will qualify as having completed the first two years required for the four-year
U of S bachelor of commerce degree offered through Edwards. “This agreement
establishes a clean and clear route from SIIT to the Edwards School that will
develop the next generation of Aboriginal business leaders. We know there is
appetite for this route and we look forward to welcoming SIIT graduates into
our program,” said Edwards’ Dean Daphne Taras in a news release.
