We believe that the ability of our students to operate effectively across traditional boundaries, with a significant focus on “learning by doing”, will be critical to our success which, in turn, will be ultimately measured by the success of our alumni. We continue to be committed to our students’ individualized personal development, to our faculty’s scholarly outcomes being influential and impactful, and to the ongoing development of our alumni.
An overarching priority of the Odette School of Business (OSB) is its focus on delivering a student educational experience that seamlessly integrates movement from theory-to-practice and practice-to-theory in all elements of School programs. In addition to offering a high quality curriculum in term of relevancy and coverage, we are committed to adding value to our alumni and future students by increasing the visibility of the School through impactful thought leadership and strong engagement with the business community and other external partners.
Our guiding objective is to provide a student experience that seamlessly integrates movement from theory-to-practice and practice-to-theory in all elements of our programs. Partnership drives this objective, with students, businesses, faculty and alumni working together. Strong staff at the administrative, program, and support levels are also key to effective partnering.
