August 3, 2010

In an interview with the Globe and Mail, Daphne Taras, the new dean of the University of Saskatchewan's Edwards School of Business, says she would like to see the school accredited. The school is looking at the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, and Taras plans to have the application done by September. She would also like to position the business school so that it is producing professionals, pointing to the school's reputable masters of professional accounting program. Taras says she'll make the integrity of Saskatchewan a competitive advantage at the school. By the "integrity of Saskatchewan," she is referring to the reputation of graduates of Saskatchewan as having a great work ethic and no entitlement mentality. Globe and Mail
