February may be the shortest month of the year, but here at The Business School, it was packed with busy schedules, hard work, and exciting opportunities. In fact, February got off to a thrilling start with a Board of Trade Dinner, where our attending faculty and students were pleasantly surprised when Prime Minister Justin Trudeau arrived and engaged in an armchair discussion with Jan De Silva.
I would also like to congratulate our Paralegal Mooting Team on their success at this year's Osgoode Cup, as well as the Professional Golf Management Program and its new partnership with the PGA of Canada Program. As always, we are proud of our graduates, in particular, Paralegal Studies alumni saw two graduates granted admission into Masters of Law programs and another graduate hired by a well-respected Ontario law firm.
