A message from the Chair - Continuing to build pride

Ann Bigelow
Ann Bigelow, Acting Chair

There is so much to say about the DAN Management program, it is hard to know where to begin.

All of us in the DAN program have a deep sense of pride in what we've built, in our students, and in our ever-growing alumni. I hope that you, our alumni, are excited to see what has been happening in the program where you spent your undergraduate years. We offer our students a unique perspective on management education and a great learning experience. There are regular developments that enhance our ability to give the best we can to our students, and several of them are highlighted in this newsletter.

The DAN Management Alumni Connect event is a terrific event in which about 20 alumni come back to campus and share insights into their current positions and openly reflect on their experiences after graduation. Our students are faced with increasingly competitive job markets, and the alumni in attendance share their insights into post-graduate studies, interview questions, recruitment cycles and general career advice.

I'd also like to share some information about our new Graduate Diploma in Accounting which has been accredited by CPA Ontario. The faculty in the program will ensure our students get the best possible launch into their accounting careers. Students who complete the Graduate Diploma will enter the CPA Professional Education Program at the Capstone 1 level. It has been very rewarding to work with the faculty in the development of this exciting new program.

Finally, I'm sure that many of you will have had the pleasure of being in an Operations Management class with Professor Rick Burjaw. Unfortunately for students who will graduate after 2016, Rick is retiring on June 30 after 12 years of entertaining and teaching our students. We wish him all the best, and hope that he will have an active and healthy retirement.
