Message from Dean Isabelle Bajeux
On behalf of the Desautels Faculty of Management, I wish to congratulate the deserving recipients of the 2017 Desautels Management Achievement Awards (DMAA), Mitch Garber (BA'86), CEO, Caesars Acquisition Company, and Norman Jaskolka (BCom'76, DPA'78), President - Aldo Group International, The Aldo Group Inc.
The DMAA event is an opportunity for our students to celebrate the accomplishments of their role models—business leaders who think globally, manage with integrity and contribute greatly to our society. Both Mr. Garber and Mr. Jaskolka demonstrate through their own varied experiences that there are many paths to achieving remarkable goals.
At Desautels we seek to foster an integrative approach to management education that combines research, theory and practice, thus creating a well-rounded learning experience. This important event is one of the ways through which we educate tomorrow’s business pioneers who, inspired by our exceptional honourees, will make a difference in the years to come.
