An AUFB Year in Review

It’s been a big year at the Faculty of Business so we thought we would take a look back at what has happened, in case you missed it!

We congratulated two MBA coaches with the Dean’s Award for Coaching Excellence.

Our esteemed DBA director Dr. Kay Devine retired and we welcomed Dr. Kai Lamertz as our newest director of the program.

We whisked away to Washington, DC in August for an international in-residence elective.

MBA’04 grad Annette Cyr was awarded the 2018 Volunteer Service Alumni Award and MBA’10 grad Reece Tomlinson was awarded the 2018 Rising Star Alumni Award.

A signing of a partnership between Aboriginal Financial Officers Association of Alberta (AFOA) and Athabasca University’s Faculty of Business is aimed at creating opportunities for Indigenous learners.

We recently welcomed Dr. Joe Cox as Athabasca University’s Canada Research Chair in Digital Disruption and Organizational Transformation (Tier 2).

Students in the Bachelor of Management in Human Resources Management now have the opportunity to achieve their CPHR designation.

The Business of Hockey Institute announced a new academic partnership with the Chicago Blackhawks.

In May 2019, Dr. Simon Sigué, Professor of Marketing, Faculty of Business at Athabasca University, will transition from vice-president to president for the International Academy of African Business and Development (IAABD).

Whew! What a year it has been. Looking forward to seeing what 2019 brings AUFB!
