Improve our Student Learning Environment
Despite being a relatively new academic facility, Taro Hall – the current home of the Goodman School of Business – no longer meets the Faculty’s educational and research needs. Only 75% of the Faculty’s present undergraduate and graduate teaching is able to occur in this facility, and this limits the School’s capacity to expand its current enrolments. This is particularly troublesome with regards to the School’s international recruitment efforts. These space challenges in addition to many technological deficiencies in the current structure place the Goodman School of Business at a competitive disadvantage to other management schools.
Enhance the Student Learning Experience
In light of a very competitive job market, many students make the transition to full-time employment immediately following their Undergraduate degrees. Strategic investments are required in the Goodman School of Business to ensure that Canadian students pursue graduate studies that will transfer leading graduate-level research and perspectives directly into the Canadian workforce.
Empower Faculty as Educator-Researchers and Innovators
Student success and academic reputation are undeniably linked to the quality of our School’s academic staff. The Goodman School of Business requires strategic investments to ensure that junior and senior faculty are recruited to further enhance the reputation of the School, produce research of international interest, and who will challenge our students to achieve academic success on a global scale.
The pursuit of research is one of the key functions of any university, and investments are required that will provide support to the research agendas of our business faculty. These investments will result in more research being pursued that will enhance the reputation of the Goodman School of Business, and a higher volume of research findings being transferred through to the Canadian business community.
