Business for a Better Canada

Everyone who joins the tight-knit community that makes up our management school is immediately engaged in the business of building a better Canada.

Our students are fully immersed in a learning experience that goes beyond the classroom and takes them out into the practical world, where they benefit from working with partners to make a real impact in their world. This exposure prepares our students to become a new generation of leaders ready to apply their learning to the world around them. 

Our faculty devotes themselves to conducting leading-edge research that produces the insights and ideas that we use to shape our unique curriculum. 

Our staff is committed to providing the support that makes all this important work possible, united by a shared belief that better business means a better Canada, and that a better Canada means a better world.

01. Getting greener

By putting sustainability at the centre of business decision-making in Canada, we focus the economy on where it needs to go and how it gets there. For us, getting greener reflects our commitment to the environment, social responsibility and good governance. The result is an economy that works for the long term with lower carbon emissions.

02. Getting Healthier

By analyzing data and developing research-based insights on how to best allocate money within the system, we create tools that decision makers use when making the choices that ultimately lead to better healthcare for all. We’re aiming to support a generation of healthier Canadians, who can enjoy living in a country with significantly lower morbidity and mortality rates. 

03. Getting Happier

By understanding the variables that indicate happiness in the context of Canadian work life and organizing them into a holistic view, we bring a new level of objectivity and analysis to wellbeing in the workplace. The result is a happier, more fulfilled society, that ranks higher on the World Happiness Report.
