For the DeGroote School of Business, 2021 was defined by our momentum.
Our students, staff, faculty, alumni, and industry partners did more than just navigate a period of global transition. We made significant progress toward our strategic priorities. And we did it during one of the most difficult periods in recent history.
The central theme of this year’s Annual Report is Momentum – building, transition, and growth can be clearly seen throughout the Annual Report through student perspectives, alumni stories, innovative research, and corporate partnerships.
DeGroote’s 2021 Annual Report shares highlights of our collective accomplishments and reflects the community’s drive toward our goals.
- Dean Khaled Hassanein began his tenure at the helm of an accomplished school with key strengths in research, teaching and learning, and community engagement.
- Research with impact: The research happening at DeGroote is having an impact on society, with a focus on advancement of knowledge and inter-disciplinary collaboration.
- Building partnerships: In 2021 we began construction on the new McLean Centre for Collaborative Discovery building. New partnerships and gift announcements are allowing us to advance even further so we can build and grow.
- The future of DeGroote: 2021 was also marked by the anticipation of something big – the future of DeGroote. This year helped to set the stage for a new DeGroote as we plan for the School’s future with a new building, strategic direction, and vision.
