OUR STORY

The Emerging Markets Project is an educational service provider and travel company located in Montreal, Canada. EMP specializes in offering two-week intensive educational tours to emerging markets for aspiring professionals who are looking to learn more about international business within these markets. EMP works closely with university and business partners to offer a one of a kind tour experience that seeks to bridge the gap between theoretical, and experiential learning.

We founded EMP in 2015 as a student initiative. As a university student, the company's Co-Founder Chelsea wanted to add value to her business degree by learning how international business works in developing countries. In its first year, we worked with the China-Canada Junior Chamber of Commerce (CCJCC) to launch our first trip to China. Through this trip, 32 students got to experience one of the world's fastest developing nations first-hand alongside us! After this fantastic success, we ran a similar trip to South Africa one year later.

Along the way, we met many individuals on the trips over the two years who voiced their support for this project that bridged Canada and developing nations. The initiative was praised by Chinese officials, the South African High Commissioner, the businesses visited in both countries (including Bombardier, Alibaba, Johannesburg Stock Exchange, and BMW), and even university faculty who wanted to integrate the trips into their courses.

In 2016, EMP became a certified travel operator in Montreal and has continued to grow exponentially ever since. We now offer a wider variety of destinations each year, now including India and Colombia. The goal is to continue to offer an all-inclusive experience that fits the student and young professional budget, while providing tangible experiences to help them stand out in their career!
