Case Study

Name: Iuliia Martynova

Age: 22

Country of origin: Ukraine

Programme: Forum for International Trade Training Diploma Co-op


I am currently in 3rd semester at The Canadian College (CC) taking FITT – International Trade Diploma Co-op Program. Hundreds of websites, endless researches, and long phone calls finally brought me to CC where not only I met people passionate about what they are doing but first of all I found friends who helped me connect my passion to travelling with my business oriented objectives.

I wish I could tell you that it is so easy to study at CC, but the fact is it involves a lot of sacrifice, juggling and hard work. However, despite the hard work on my self-discipline and my time management, spending free time on lot’s of reading and researching instead of relaxing with my fiends I do understand how much I have already achieved and will keep this pace.

What has kept me going and consistently able to excel academically and professionally was the absolutely captivating nature of the material, the superb quality of the professors, the flexibility and understanding of the administrative staff, the sheer number of students forming an outstanding support network, and last but certainly not least, the support of my classmates who became my close friends here in Canada!

In my opinion Vancouver is a perfect place to study International Relations and Trade. My classmates represent more than 10 countries from different continents which for sure make it much easier to learn about each aspect of international trade.

Next semester I will do my Co-op at one of the export companies in Vancouver where I will have the chance to apply my knowledge on practice plus will develop individually, professionally and hopefully internationally.

Right now I am able to help my friend, a private entrepreneur in Ukraine, to establish successful trade relations with Canada. We have already signed our first contract with a Canadian company to export some goods to be distributed in Ukraine. And I can proudly say that most of documentation writing, market research and choice of the strategy have been done by me based on my program materials.

The successful completion of 2-year program will give me an opportunity to apply for becoming a Certified International Trade Professional.
