Purpose is how we do business. And how we do business transforms the world.
To foster interdisciplinary thinking and evidence-based management to transform business and society.
To be ranked among the top tier business schools in Canada, and to be globally recognized as a leader in research, teaching, and community-building – especially in healthcare management and the management of digital innovation – by 2020.
We support a culture that embraces bold, interdisciplinary thinking; drives the creation and application of evidence-based knowledge; and expects collegial activity undertaken with integrity.
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.
Dean, DeGroote School of Business
