DeGroote: Who We Are

Our value and responsibility to business and society is to foster new knowledge that is significant today and tomorrow.

Education with Purpose is more than a tagline; it is a reflection of our mission, vision and values. While we instill a sense of purpose in our graduates, we also have a collective purpose to help transform business and society.

I believe that our new strategic plan will allow us to produce innovative programs and research that enable our graduates to excel in the fast-paced world. As dean I am proud of the history of innovation at DeGroote, and look forward to our future.
