KingsU launches new Leder School of Business

September 29, 2014

The King’s University in Edmonton has launched the Leder School of Business, thanks to $12 M in donations and commitments. The new business school is named after founding donor John Leder, President of Edmonton-based Supreme Group. The Leder School will offer programs and courses in 5 streams: Global Learning, Entrepreneurship, Sustainability, Accounting, and Distance Learning. KingsU is also working on the development of a Centre for Applied Learning within the Leder School. Students will have the opportunity to participate in international internships and exchanges in order to foster global awareness. “The Leder School of Business will offer business programs unique in western Canada, but also give students the critical and strategic thinking needed to succeed in business and life,” said President Melanie Humphreys. KingsU was one of the AB university colleges recently authorized to change their names to university. KingsU News
