How do you use the Arbitrage Magazine website?
Once, we had a reader ask us, “How do you use the Arbitrage Magazine website?” Honestly, we never thought someone would ask this. So to answer this person, we decided to go all out and create an infographic answer! And now, we’re sharing it with you (click on the image below).
What is the ARBITRAGE magazine?
The Arbitrage Magazine is Canada’s first, and world’s largest, student-driven business magazine. We examine current business trends in a way that matters to student minds, by having interesting content that’s written and designed by students, for students. We work hard to make our content insightful and UN-boring.
What is the Arbitrage Magazine’s vision?
To be a resource for young leaders to examine those business trends of tomorrow that they will help shape today.
Where did the Arbitrage Magazine come from? How did it start?
The Arbitrage Magazine started in late 2007, originally envisioned as a simple newsletter for the National Finance Students Association (NFSA.ca). After David Alexander joined the NFSA as the loosely defined Chief Editor, he decided to turn that simple newsletter into something bigger.
___Soon after, the Arbitrage Magazine was born. Because it received such a positive reception, more issues were created – one per school term. Over time, new writers and designers joined the team and ensured that each new issue was better than the last.
___David chose to continue running the ARB after he graduated in June, 2010, and since then the Arbitrage has launched this website, grown in staff (still growing) and grown its readership.
___The goal now is to make the ARB the most widely read student-run publication in Canada (and North America) and we’re taking baby steps in that very direction every single day.
How much does the Arbitrage Magazine cost?
The ARB, in its electronic form, is free to download by all. We hope you don’t mind.
___That said, if you insist on buying high quality print copies of the ARB, options are available to you in our Sales Page.
What subjects does the Arbitrage Magazine cover?
The ARB covers all types of subject matter as long as there is a business angle to it. See the Topics menu for a list of topics the ARB covers.
What makes the Arbitrage Magazine different?
The ARB is different in a number of ways. First, we’re a student publication that is not confined to any one school. Specifically, we’re a national business magazine, which allows us to cover broad subject matter that you may not be able to find in your regular school newsletter or newspaper.
___Second, we do our best to encourage our writers to produce in-depth feature and sectional content. Whenever possible, we try to highlight issues and topics that are on the fringes of society’s psyche. We try to explore trends that are changing the world now and in the future.
___We also have one of the largest and most talented design staff of any student publication out there. We care about how our design is presented and work hard to ensure our content stimulates your eyes, as much as your eyes.
___It is our hope that the longer you read the ARB, the more you’ll find yourself saying in conversations with others, “Hey, I remember reading about that in the ARB. You want me to tell you more about it?” Of course, try to sound more natural when you say it.
When did the Arbitrage Magazine website launch?
The ARB website launched on Oct 18, 2010. We’ve been taking baby steps to build it up ever since!
Does the Arbitrage Magazine support any charities?
Presently, we have allocated 2% of all future profits to charity. The two charities that we donate to are The United Way, Unity Charity, and Toronto Youth Development.
___In the future, we hope to increase the percentage we donate out of our annual profits, as well as the number of charities we donate to.
___If you know of any charities worth donating to (non-religious or denomination) that the ARB can support, please let us know at: firstname.lastname@example.org
How often does the Arbitrage Magazine release new issues/content to its website?
Presently, we release four issues of the ARB per year. As for the ARB website, we update daily.
___By 2012, we hope to grow to at least eight issues per year. Soon after, we will become a monthly publication.

How does the Arbitrage Magazine relate to other student publications?
The ARB believes in supporting a strong student press community in all the universities and colleges within its reach. Although the ARB poses as another competitor for student readership, the reality is that our being a national publication, with a more global perspective, largely removes the ARB from being a direct competitor to local, student papers, which focus more on matters related to their respective schools.
