A Message from the Dean
Thank you for your support
As I step into my new role as Dean, I first would like to thank you for the support and encouragement my team and I have received from the entire Schulich community over the past 15 months. Your support was the reason we were able to turn a uniquely difficult year into a remarkably successful one for the School.
I am very excited to have the opportunity to continue to work together with you and move the school forward. I was eager to join Schulich almost 20 years ago because I saw it as a place that values innovative research, espouses the notion that business education ought to include broader ethical, social and environmental considerations, and because it graduates students aspiring to make a positive difference in the world.
Today, Schulich continues to be a place where our research and teaching tackles important concerns such as environmental sustainability and equity, diversity and inclusion, and where our students develop into purpose-driven business leaders. I could not be prouder and more honoured to lead this School.
Thanks to the exceptional leadership of Dean Emeritus Dezsö Horváth and the hard work of faculty, staff, students and the entire community, Schulich is counted among the best business schools in Canada and around the world. I am very excited to work together with the Schulich community to build on Schulich’s tradition of excellence to reach new heights. The challenges ahead require nothing less of us. Management education will see significant disruption in the coming years and the need to provide a world-class learning experience for our students, and to create knowledge with meaningful impact on business and the world around us, has never been greater.
Challenges are also great opportunities and I look forward to working with you to make our School even better!
