The DeGroote Story

About


Purpose is how we do business. And how we do business transforms the world.

Direction

Mission

To foster interdisciplinary thinking and evidence-based management to transform business and society.

Vision

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.

Values

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.

Leadership

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.
