Welcome to a new year of academic excellence. Whether you are a new or returning student, we look forward to your contribution within our community. You will be joining other like-minded individuals who share our vision of inspiring transformative solutions for society.
CFAME Connection outreach modality connects our students, alumni and stakeholders. These past months, graduates and professors have discussed themes ranging from virtual teams, and information management to scholarship and deeper learning. This demonstrates a values-based approach to management education and research.
This year, the Faculty of Management marked its 50th year anniversary. Thank you to our engaged alumni. You make us proud. As the leaders and managers in the business sector, public sector, and civil society your influence within a complex global environment has been extraordinary.
Dalhousie’s Faculty of Management has a unique approach to education. We integrate four disciplines which encourages and promotes knowledge exchange: the Rowe School of Business, the School of Information Management, the School of Public Administration and the School for Resources and Environmental Studies. This allows us to collaborate, prosper and contribute within a wider milieu. Business education is more interesting and relevant if you bring business education beyond the borders of a normal business school.
In 2018, we will celebrate Dalhousie’s 200th anniversary, beginning this month until December 2018. We invite you to share your stories with us on CFAME Connection. We are witnessing the beginning of Dalhousie’s next century, an era that promises unimaginable possibilities and opportunities. This is the time to build upon Dalhousie’s 200-year legacy and inspire a new generation of students.
We look forward to the ongoing conversations on CFAME Connection.
