Members of the Brock community are invited to celebrate a significant milestone for the Goodman School of Business Wednesday, Nov. 23.
Held to mark the 10th anniversary of Goodman becoming a named business school, an event will take place from 1 to 2 p.m. in the Goodman Atrium. The naming of the School was announced in fall 2012 following a transformational gift from then Brock Chancellor Ned Goodman and the Goodman Family Foundation.
For Goodman Interim Dean Barry Wright, the celebration will be an opportunity for Brock to celebrate Goodman School spirit and the accomplishments made possible because of the trust Goodman and his family placed in the University.
“He gave us his name, reputation and the resources to make us who we are today,” said Wright. “Being named signalled to the external business community that a prominent Canadian trailblazer saw value in our School and the work we were doing, while also generating a profound sense of pride for both our students and faculty.”
Ten years later, the return on that investment is paying off with Goodman now ranked by Maclean’s magazine as one of Canada’s top 20 business schools, coming in with an overall ranking of 18 and placing 17th in the reputation category.
Goodman is also the only Canadian business school in the International Partnership of Business Schools network and has received international accolades for its contributions it makes both locally and globally.
“This is a significant anniversary for the Goodman School of Business and a wonderful opportunity to thank our faculty, students and benefactors who have made this possible. I look forward to celebrating with the Brock community,” said University President and Vice-Chancellor Lesley Rigg.
“We are excited to welcome members of the Goodman family, alumni and our Goodman community to celebrate this milestone,” said event organizer Susan LeBlanc, Goodman’s Director of Communications and Engagement. “We invite members of the campus community to join us and experience what Goodman spirit is at this informal event.”
No response or registration is required to attend the event.
