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

Our value and responsibility to business and society is to foster new knowledge that is significant to 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 do that to a degree of success that we have yet to see; and it will benefit us all. As dean I am proud of the history of innovation at DeGroote, and look forward to our future.

Purpose is not a subject we teach. It lives in our students, professors and alumni.
Purpose is how we do business and how we do business transforms the world.
