April 4, 2016

Western University has received a $3 M gift from Scotiabank to create the Scotiabank Digital Banking Lab at the Ivey Business School. The funding will act as part of a collaborative partnership between Scotiabank and Ivey to generate thought leadership and develop future talent in the digital space. This partnership will include research projects, internships and field study opportunities for Ivey students, and co-sponsorship of digital events. “In this day and age, it’s impossible to separate our digital strategy from the bank’s overall strategy,” said Scotiabank CEO Brian Porter, “digitizing our customer interfaces, our distribution channels and our internal processes are all critical to delivering on our overall vision to provide a consistently excellent customer experience.” WesternU
