Our commitment to innovation

It’s an exciting time at DAN Management and Organizational Studies. In February 2015, CPA Ontario’s Council approved accreditation of our new Graduate Diploma in Accounting when combined with the accounting stream in the Bachelor of Management and Organizational Studies.

Several courses currently offered at the undergraduate level will be revised and then offered in the Graduate Diploma and two new courses have been added to undergraduate requirements. The Graduate Diploma program will begin May 2016. These developments speak to the Department’s commitment to innovation so students are provided with what they need to succeed.

This summer, up to 35 DAN students will spend two intense weeks at Hong Kong University earning a credit in business strategy while experiencing Chinese business culture. It’s an entirely new opportunity for our students. The response has been extremely positive and we anticipate the course will grow. The inaugural course will be taught by DAN professors Raymond Leduc and Ruth Ann Strickland and will involve mentors from the Hong Kong business community.

It’s particularly rewarding for DAN faculty and staff to see how so many of our students are deeply involved in their community both as students and later as alumni. Their sense of responsibility is high and they regularly give back to our program.
