At the Desautels Faculty of Management we believe in integrating teaching, research and practice. We aim to capture the pioneering research of professors along with the insights and expertise of top business practitioners to create exceptional programs and course content. This allows us to maximize intellectual exchange and stimulate innovation in the classroom and in our research, which feeds directly back into business practice.
To help accomplish this, we have formed expert panels with top level executives from around the world who have the highest standing and expertise in their field to serve on one of four expert panels.
More information on Expert Panels and a list of their members can be found here.
