November 16, 2017

The University of Calgary has partnered with the John Grill Centre for Project Leadership at the University of Sydney in Australia to create a joint initiative in Advanced Project Leadership. Twenty-two Alberta industry leaders from diverse industries took part in a masterclass to kickstart the project, where they discussed the importance of leadership in projects, explored the challenges facing senior executives in governing and leading capital-intensive projects, and identified the need for building leadership within project teams. “This partnership is mutually beneficial,” said UCalgary Vice-Provost (International) Janaka Ruwanpura. “We are looking forward to bringing our strengths together and working with industry to develop an intensive executive education program.” UCalgary
