Professor Henry Mintzberg presents “McGill as a Community"
Universities have been defined as professors connected by
parking lots. Great universities get beyond this to become engaging
communities. How is McGill doing: how might it do?
Professor Mintzberg will take questions from the audience following his presentation.
Henry Mintzberg, the Cleghorn Professor of Management Studies in the Desautels Faculty of Management, has been a professor at McGill since graduating with a PhD from MIT in 1968. He is recognized internationally for his writing and research in crafting new approaches to Management education and development. He has published 15 books and about 150 articles. He has been elected as an Officer of the Order of Canada, l’Ordre national du Quebec, and Fellow of the Royal Society (first from a Management Faculty). He is the recipient of the Prix du Quebec as well as two McKinsey prizes for articles in HBR. He has also been awarded 15 Honorary Doctorate degrees.
Henry published “Community-ship is the Answer” in the Financial Times (2006); “Rebuilding Companies as Communities” was published in the July-August 2009 Harvard Business Review. His article “Strategic Management Upside Down: A Study of McGill University from 1829 to 1980”, published in the Canadian Journal of Administrative Sciences, received the Journal's 2003 best paper award in Strategy.
