The end of the academic year is always an exciting time at the Business School. It’s when so many of our students' final projects, events and presentations finally come to fruition. I had the privilege of viewing several such projects, including Haute Humber and Marketing Degree students’ capstone presentations. In every instance, I was blown away by the level of our students’ professionalism. Throughout this newsletter, you'll also see our Program Coordinators' "Good News" tweets, celebrating school and student achievements this academic year!
