Leaked documents show concerns about Brandon, ACC proposed joint business school

March 23, 2016

A report authored by the chair of Brandon University’s Department of Business Administration calls a proposed joint business school with Assiniboine Community College "extremely risky," reports the Brandon Sun. Citing leaked documents, the Sun alleges that Brandon’s Business Administration Chair Heather Gillander argued that the proposed school would offer no financial benefit to the university and would "reduce pathways for students [and ...] reduce the number of students taking a business program in Brandon." Brandon’s Acting Vice-President Academic and Provost Steve Robinson replied that Gillander’s report is "essentially a proposal in principle to get the parties together to work out the details."
