Acting Dean’s Message

Change and Transition

It has been a year of change across the Ivey Business School – we are in the midst of a search for a new dean; we have a substantial number of new and familiar faces in various staff and faculty roles; and, we face significant external pressures that force us to take a close look at what we teach students and how we teach them.
