A leading expert in quality assurance has been appointed as Executive in Residence for the Goodman School of Business at Brock University.
Tom Robinson, who recently retired as President and CEO of the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), will join Brock’s business school in a volunteer role that will see him serve as a mentor to Goodman students, providing insight on the realities of working in their chosen area of study, give guest presentations in courses and contribute to discussions with the School on continuous improvement strategies.
Robinson brings with him many years of experience from his senior leadership role at AACSB, as well as his time as a Managing Director of Education globally for CFA Institute. He also provides rich academic experience as a former Professor of Accounting at the University of Miami.
“We are delighted and very fortunate to have Tom as our Executive in Residence,” said Goodman Dean Andrew Gaudes. “His extensive experience in quality assurance, as well as his positive energy and enthusiasm for what he does makes him a perfect fit for this role.”
Robinson said he is looking forward to sharing with students his personal and professional experience as someone with the CPA, CFA and CFP designations and conveying how important a quality education from one of Goodman’s AACSB-accredited programs is to prospective employers.
“I’m thrilled to be joining the Goodman School of Business at Brock University,” Robinson said. “I had the pleasure of working with Dean Gaudes while I served as President and CEO of AACSB and am looking forward to collaborating with such a great institution.”
The position is a two-year term that will run until March 2023. To start, Robinson will be exploring virtual engagement opportunities with the School with the hope for in-person opportunities once the borders and campus reopen.
