The moderated question and answer session led by Dean Bob Kennedy touched on the benefits of the recently signed Canada European Trade Agreement, foreign direct investment, international trade and Canada’s position within a global economy during these challenging times.
In a private session, EMBA and MBA students directed questions to the Prime Minister. Professor Tony Frost guided this discussion that included topics such as inter-provincial trade and the growing employment skills gap in Canada.
“At Ivey we strive to expose students to the leading decision makers as a central part of their business education,” said Kennedy. “This event highlighted the complex nature of national policy making and it was a privilege to hear from Canada’s top decision maker on economic issues.”
The event included Ivey Advisory Board members and guests and was held at the Design Exchange in Toronto.
