Dean's Message

Welcome to a new year at the University of Alberta School of Business — a place where leaders come to lead!

At the School, we pride ourselves on our passionate teaching and research in the classroom, with an abundance of opportunities for learning beyond our walls. Whether you are a returning student or brand new to the School, I urge you to take advantage of each and every opportunity that comes your way and enhance your educational experience whenever possible.

Our amazing staff, faculty, students and alumni aim to help create these experiences throughout the year by planning events that bring us together and connect us to the broader community. This fall, I look forward to supporting our great students as they, again, take the plunge for the United Way “Chillin’ for Charity” event, where last year we raised nearly $10,000 for the United Way capital region. Later this semester, I’ll also be taking part in our annual CONNECT event where I’ll moderate a conversation on trade, investment, and our role in the future of the global economy. I hope you will join me at these events, and the many others over the course of the year.

Best of luck in the upcoming term and throughout your time at the Alberta School of Business!
