The DeGroote School of Business continually asks what is the purpose of business education in the 21st century? We strive to build today’s leader – an individual who thinks big, explores new possibilities, acts with integrity, and embraces change. By embracing change and teaching strategic foresight, we are developing leaders who can think ahead and effectively manage the constant change around us. We are designing for a better tomorrow, and in doing so, creating a brighter world.
