DeGroote makes changes in collaboration, brand reach

September 20, 2013

The DeGroote School of Business at McMaster University is “ramping up efforts” to collaborate with other faculties and the community, and to build its brand beyond Hamilton and Burlington. DeGroote Dean Len Waverman spoke about the recent changes made to DeGroote at a luncheon last week. Waverman says the school is reaching out to different faculties to offer students a more well-rounded education. “In turn, business programming is helpful to those studying social sciences or fine arts or anything else on campus,” says Waverman. DeGroote is also launching a new program called Finance at DeGroote, in which students travel to the National Club in Toronto to talk about their research; the hope is to raise DeGroote’s profile in Toronto.Hamilton Spectator
