NIAGARA

Life in Niagara
We’re located in the heart of the Niagara Region and are situated in close proximity to Toronto and Buffalo, N.Y.
St. Catharines and Niagara are part of the Golden Horseshoe region of Ontario, an area that contains more than a quarter of Canada’s population and boasts a large number of industries and corporate head offices.
There is much to enjoy in the Niagara region — it’s a major Canadian tourist destination where you can enjoy year-round festivals and events, diverse nightlife, theatre and fine dining.
St. Catharines is the ideal university town. Brock students play a strong role in their community, and get involved with local charities and community initiatives. Housing is affordable and available close to campus. Shops and services are varied and easily accessible. And the friendly size of the city means that you are never far from your friends and classmates.

The Goodman School of Business
The Goodman School of Business is one of the country’s newest and fastest growing business schools with one of the most international outlooks of any business school in Canada. The excellence of the School has been recognized internationally through accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International. In fact, we are among the top five per cent of business schools worldwide to hold this prestigious accreditation.

Why Brock?
We nurture both sides of the brain
Our unique philosophy takes students beyond the pursuit of academic excellence.
Brock is a place where left-brain and right-brain thinking come together. Students develop rational/analytical thinking in concert with their emotional/creative sides. We view community involvement as crucial to developing intelligent, well-rounded members of society.
Our rigorous undergraduate, graduate and doctoral programs include experiential learning opportunities and one of Canada’s largest co-op programs. Our cross-disciplinary and interdisciplinary programs offer multi-faceted degrees that help students build careers and get jobs.
We’re growing
For a decade, Brock has had the second-highest growth of students of any Ontario university.
More than $300 million in construction has been committed or commissioned to expand the campus. In recent years, we’ve constructed:
• new student residences;
• the Plaza building, home of a new campus store and academic space;
• the Jack and Nora Walker Canadian Centre for Lifespan Development Research, a facility unique in Canada
• a new International Centre
Construction is ongoing for the Cairns Family Health and Bioscience Research Complex, a state-of-the-art facility where students and professors will explore new frontiers in green science and health and wellness.
And in downtown St. Catharines, work has started on the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts, a landmark campus that will support digital media and creativity, and help revitalize downtown St. Catharines.
We’re green
Brock has a park-like setting atop the Niagara Escarpment in Ontario’s Niagara peninsula. Brock’s campus is part of a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.
We have the numbers to back it up
Consider the following:
• When students from across our seven faculties gave their ratings to the Globe and Mail Canadian University Report, Brock was one of Canada’s top medium-size institutions in terms of quality of education, quality of teaching and most satisfied students.
• With 18,000 students and nearly 600 faculty, we’re small enough to be intimate, big enough to be world-class and in demand among international students.
We care
Brock provides opportunities for social and academic growth that don’t exist at larger universities, like access to professors. Our emphasis on moderate class sizes in seminar settings makes more students full participants in the learning experience.

Student Life
Student clubs and activities offer you excellent networking opportunities, team building activities and leadership chances, as well as social events during your time at Goodman. Involvement in these activities looks great on your resume and strengthen your graduate experience.
We encourage you to become involved with a variety of activities during your time at Brock as a way to enhance your graduate experience. You can learn more about our student success at the Graduate and Undergraduate level
