Louis Gagnon, EMBA 1997, provides major gift to the Centre for Executive Leadership
Louis Gagnon, EMBA 1997, joined the alumni community at the May 5th Telfer Executive MBA Alumni Association's (Telfer EMBAAA) Annual General Meeting event with a major announcement.
Louis announced that the Telfer School's Centre for Executive Leadership, which is home of the Telfer Executive MBA program, will be the recipient of a $250,000 major gift.
The donation will go towards the establishment of the Louis Gagnon Executive Pedagogical Innovation Fund.
The new fund will financially support the transformation and innovation of the Telfer School of Management’s executive program structures, content and delivery to be aligned with evolving learning modes. This includes researching, creating and implementing alternate, flexible and adaptable content and delivery methods, as well as creating or commissioning integrative cases that would be used across more than one course.
“The Executive MBA program has been a turning point in my career", said Louis Gagnon. “From the math prep course to the Organizational Behaviour courses and the summer consulting project, the experience prepared me to seize opportunities that I did not know existed and propel my career forward. With this donation, I’m pleased to support others in realising their own ambitions.”
