Happy Holidays_NEWS

Wishing you the happiest of holidays & a wonderful new year!

Dear Faculty of Business alumni, students, faculty, staff, and friends,

The end of the year brings with it an opportunity to reflect upon our year and the time we have shared together. As we close 2017, I’m not only astounded by what we have been able to accomplish but also the relationships we have built and the positive momentum we continue to share. We will continue to focus on matters that are important to you, thereby making our Faculty stronger together.

It has never been clearer that this is a momentous time for AU and for our Faculty – a time for opportunity and to demonstrate our far-reaching impacts. You, our students and alumni, are a huge part of growing and shaping our bright future with your business knowledge and perspicuity. Year-after-year I continue to be amazed at our Faculty of Business family, made up of all of you. Your hard work, dedication, and generosity of spirit is evidenced by the connections we continue to make and grow within our community – thank you!  

Wishing you and your loved ones all the very best of the season!

Happy holidays,

Dean, Faculty of Business
